Why Nicky is Still Rear-Facing

Nicky is still rear-facing in his car seat. The video below should explain why - it is just so much safer! I had no idea until I saw this video. A fellow mom shared it with me and I really appreciated it. Most carseats say you can turn the kiddo forward facing at 1 year if the baby is 20 or 22 pounds. However, carseats function so much better rear-facing, and the same carseats can be used rear-facing until 30 or 35 pounds (check the manual). Hope this helps someone else like it did for me.
