DD is 10 months old and extremely long but only 17lbs. Someone told DH we should turn her forward facing because of how long her legs are. I say ridiculous and no way. I have every intention of keeping her rear facing for as long as possible. I looked up the laws and in our state it is not illegal to turn them forward facing before 1 year old. Regardless...it isn't happening. Can you ladies give me some suggestions to back up my claims as to why it is dangerous? All I know is that their necks are not strong enough and they can get seriously injured in an accident. What else?
