The Importance of Rear-Facing for as long as possible

There is a great new video on you tube that I believe every mother, mother to be, friend/or family to a parent, father and any other caregiver of infant and children needs to watch.

The Importance of Rear-Facing


I hope everyone who gets to see this finds it benifical and makes the decision to keep their little ones rear facing as long as possible. Thanks for looking.

For those who want to know more:

Info on why rear-facing is best

Oh that freaks me out! I just flipped my dd yesterday, she is at the limit for rear facing in our car seat.

I didn't think your reply was rude at all. No worries.

I do think it is worth mentioning more than once.

My son is the first child shown on that video. He has never had an issue rearfacing, he will be three next month. Isn't he cute! I am so proud!

One of my friends' little girl is in the video as well. She is the same age as my DD (they'll be five in July).
