Also mama who suggested window tint, I've never heard of that! Thanks! Will defiently factor that into my next car.

I did however have a large window shade that covered the back glass. I got it from BRU, it had no hard plastic or anything on it..just the thin shade and 4 suction cups. No idea what happened to it in the crash. The shade on his window (which I know wasn't safe) was the regular pull down shade, it fell to the outside of the car.

Thanks again everyone!
If his old seat RFd to 40lbs, the only American seats with higher RFing weights are the Diono Radian 120 & RXT, or Sunshine Kids Radian XTSL or 80sl

Re: rear facing saved my childs life!

This is that one time, that things could have gone bad, but you did all the right things, and while you had quite a scare, you get your family to hold tonight . For all those who think, well I survived just fine without, or it's just too much bother, and think this can never happen to them, well I hope they see your story and think for a second and leave that seat facing the back just a little longer. Blessings to your family.

Re: rear facing saved my childs life!

Wow I'm so glad you are all ok!

I was in a crash last August in which I was hit at 75+ mph and walked away with only minor injuries. My kids were not with me but I was very thankful that my car held up so well and did such a great job of transferring the energy. I had a BMW SUV and replaced it with another one. Their crash safety is awesome.
