Mom's and Dad's please watch:
Before I watched this video, I didn't fully understand why you should keep your child rear-facing as long as possible. Now I know why. This video/explanation makes perfect sense. I will be keeping Claire's car seat rear-facing until her it's at the point where she has to be turned front-facing. For our car seat, it's 40lbs. There will be no moving her at a year or 20 lbs. I know I drive safe but it just takes one time to change a life forever. I would rather be safe then sorry!
Hopefully this video will help you make your decision a little bit easier!
