ok why bash anyone .. i can spout out facts .. but well until something happens close to home..... a person may never change their mind .. so my new out look ... im keeping my child rear facing till the max on his seat .. after that he will be harnessed in a 5 point until hes 65 lbs .. and well if you choose to turn you child before the BARE REQUIRMENT of the 1 yr and 20 lbs mark .. ITS YOUR CHOICE , ITS YOUR CHILD , BUT ITS YOUR CHILDS LIFE ... NOT YOURS .

Jun. 1, 2008 at 8:20 PM I agree in Ohio you can get a free car seat through the city health department. you just have to watch  a video and demonstration . in the video it shows you what can happen if the child is turned around within less than a pound early. The child was thrown forward with whiplash and brain trauma from head lashing back to the seat. It for this reason that my daughter didnot get turned around until 20mths. she just now at 22mths weighs 20lbs. and 3oz.
