Am I the only person out there that didn't know "why" a baby is suppose to be rear facing in a carseat until a certain age and weight? I have just came upon all this information over the past few weeks and I am shocked at how, well stupid I am/was. I would like to think that I read the manual when my 1st son was born but I honestly can not remember. I know that I turned him FFing prior to his 1st birthday beacuse he was over 20lbs and I thought that he was "safe" and the weight limit was more important than the age. So now I know what is safe and have re-read the manuals on both carseats and have them in properly but I'm wondering how many other moms out there think they are doing what is right but just don't know. I really wish that someone would have told me how dangerous it was to turn my 1st son FF so young but I'm thankful nothing ever happened. Am I alone on this? I had some mother tell me how awful I was because I didn't read the manual like I purposely put him in harms way. RIGHT! I would like to think that I am a fairly intelligent person and research most topics to their fullest when it comes to my children I just didn't know there was anything to research when it came to this topic. I've had my seats checked at carseat inspections and have always had great things said about the way my seats are installed so how the hell was I suppose to know?! I mean I guess I should have....
Anyway, I just wanted to know if I'm alone on this?
