Exactly!! I have an aunt that is that way, and my cousin NEVER lets her take the kids anywhere. I don't know why people refuse to believe the information that is given to them. I mean, especially about children's safety, why would they lie about those studies?

I know right!! But I bought a car seat and installed it in her car. And my DD is smart she's almost 4. She knows she's suppose to be in a carseat. She tells her grandma. I need to be in a seat nana. It's dangerous lol

Quoting Tανη [CNL]:" I've heard (don't know for sure, though) that the law in Sweden requires children to rear face until either 4 or 5. They're way ahead of the times."

The cool thing is, it's not a law there. Everyone just does it because it's common knowledge there that it's safest. They've been rear-facing kids since the '60s. I hope in a few more years it'll happen everywhere else too.

Quoting Kylie's Mommy ♥:" When are you allowed to face the seat forward. Like according to the law? A friend of mine has her ... [snip!] ... 9 month old facing forward and I thought that was way to young. My dd is almost 4 so I know she's old enough. But 9 months??"


It's one year and 20 lbs. And yeah that's young but there are people all over the world that don't care. Take my SIL for instance who is FF her 6 month old 13 lb little girl. I tried to tell her but all I got was attitude. :roll:

Quoting Tανη [CNL]:" My SIL waited till her eldest was 3, which I thought was appropriate. But she FF'd her next one at 2, which I still don't agree with. I feel like it's too early for her and it makes me nervous."


I would have liked to RF until 3 but DD's legs are sooo long.

Geez this thread got ugly.



Long legs do not prevent a child from rear facing, there has never been a documented case of broken legs from a child being in an accident while rfing but there have been many serious injuries and DEATHS from children involved in accidents while ffing. Besides a broken leg is much easier to fix than a spine, brain or spinal cord.
