Re: should I forward face him?
I can't move him to the middle if he is rear facing. DH needs his seat back too far or he literally cannot fit in the vehicle. I do wish that I had bought a radian instead of the seats we have because they sit lower and would be easier for DS to get into. But DH lost his job last spring and there is no way that we can afford new seats. Or even one new seat. That would be my ideal solution though.
I guess I will give it a bit more time. He will hit 40 pounds soon enough, and at least I know the struggle to get him in his seat won't last forever.
