I saw the following video on a friend’s blog over a year ago. I just remembered it today as I was thinking about flipping Little Man soon.
He’s only a few months from two and just getting so tall. Plus, he seems uncomfortable on long car rides.
In my quest for the original video, I also found this very informative one. Did you know that in Sweden, people tend to keep their children rear-facing until the age of 3 or 4?
Also, according to the New York Times article “Rear-Facing Car Seats Advised at Least to Age of 2”, in quoting Dr. Alisa Baer, EMT’s call a rear-facing car seat the ‘orphan seat’ because often the child is the only survivor in a bad accident.
That breaks my heart.
Now, I will keep Little man rear facing in his car seat for as long as I possibly can based on the weight and height restrictions on the seat.
