The lack of car seat knowledge

Is amazing.
Here is a link explaining WHY the AAP says to rear face until AT LEAST 2 years old.

http://www.earlyinterventionsupport.com/parentingtips/safety/rearfacingcarseats.aspx

Now, stop using the "they will break their leg" excuse.
It's MUCH easier to repair a leg (and the article even said it is RARE for rear facing) than a neck injury is.

    good I bought my nephew his carseat so that my sister could continue to rear face him. =D He just turned 3 and is doing great!

    Even with credible information you will still have those who will argue "my kid my choice" blah blah blah.  I'm just glad there are some who are smarter than that!

    There's actually never even been a reported case of broken legs while rearfacing. Silliest argument ever lol. Either way, I'd much rather deal with that than to buried my child. :)

    My kids stayed rear facing until 26 months
