So ds will be 1 on the 30th. He is a big boy almost 30 lbs already. Everyone here seems to talk about extended rear-facing and I never heard about that till this site. With dd I forward faced her once she turned 1 because that's what I thought everyone did. So what should I do with ds? He is a very big boy so idk what to do.
My ds just turned one and he is a big boy too, 27lbs. I just got him a truefit premier convertable carseat and he is still happily rear facing and will be for awhile. It isn't about how big they are its about their spine not being fused yet and so it's safer for them to stay rear facing. So my recommendation would be to keep him rear facing!
