Re: Is your 1, 2 or 3 year old rear facing in the car?

The rule of thumb is when the top of the child's ears are over the top of the back of the carseat, they are too big for the seat. I called britax about my son's legs having to be crossed because they are too long & they said that is ok also! & to keep him rear facing until 33 pounds!

Also I just happened to see some advertisements in a parenting mag the other day at the clinic talking about new carseats from safety first & fisher price that are going to sit rear facing until 33-35 pounds & forward facing in the harness until 65 pounds!! NICE to see these important features from companies that are less costly then britax!! I think britax is worth the investment, but if you can't do that investment, now there will be other choices too!!
