German Moms, question about car seats

OK.. DH is "always right"... but I have to know for my own sanity...

Are there not any car seats past 1 year age/weight that are NOT forward-facing here in Germany? The next size up Maxi-Cosi is listed as Forward facing, and that's 9 kilos up OR 1 year. (we're at 7 months and about 7 kilos so we're getting up there...)

DH says "no nobody does that" but I seem to recall hearing otherwise. Someone please set me straight.

YES!! You can get a BeSafe iZi Combi seat from HTS. They are expensive and hard to find but goes up to 18 kg in rear-facing position. Planning to buy one soon. Another possibility is the Wavo Bimbofix, which is mounted with Isofix. I The Recaro Polaric is also mounted with Isofix website .

There are a few seats listed as rear-facing up to 13 kilos that can also accommodate a taller child than the standard Maxi-Cosi seats: Concord Ultimax.

More information from a German language forum. The posts from Elistra are the most informative.

THANK YOU! I was just about to revisit this after the convo my DH and I had last night... he insisted yet again there is none. LOL
I'll email him this and it's on him now.
