Car seat sickness (part 2)

I want to thank the moms who took the time to reply to my previous post ❤️ I have reclined the car seat & my baby has not thrown up! 😁 However, he will be facing forward soon, & I’m worried that once he does he will begin throwing up again 😩 I’m curious as to how other moms have handled this. Do I keep the seat reclined while facing forward? I have to read the manual again & see if that’s safe, but in case it’s not, what can I do to prevent him from vomiting? I’m hoping medicine is not my only option!

    You don't need to forward face your child just because he turns 2. He should be 40 lbs or 40 inches to forward face.

    True, you can keep rear facing until you hit limits (and many people now recommend that). But also, it is the rear facing part that makes many kids sick. Might not be a problem forward facing. Not sure how close to two you are, but I wouldn’t stress until you try it.

    You are both right. I thought the limit was 22 lbs, but it’s actually 50! My baby will be turning two in two months, but he’s only 20 lbs, so it looks like we’re far from the forward facing stage. Thank you so much for your help! ❤️
