Reply to Forward-facing back to rear-facing car seat...

It’s recommended by weight and height, not so much age. And it’s also not enforced legally (though the legal age has changed to 2 years in most states). I do believe in extended rear facing as long as possible, but I would say it’s not worth the fight at age 3, if he won’t have it. My second is 2 and I wanted to have him rear facing much longer like his older brother was, but his older brother is no longer rear facing and so the little dude decided to start kicking against the seat and he would lift his car seat (even though it was securely tethered on the latch system). The car seat wouldn’t come loose, but it would shift to the point where the little bubble indicator was no longer level. So last week, he went forward.
