My daughter has outgrown her infant car seat. We moved her into her Graco Myride65 convertible carseat but put it in rear-facing as recommended by our pediatrician. He actually told us she should be rear-facing for two years! She hates it. She screams the whole time and seems really uncomfortable. She can't see anything because the sides are much higher and wider than her infant seat. The instructions that came with the car seat say rear-facing for infants 20-40 pounds and forward facing for toddlers 20-65 pounds. My daughter is 22 pounds and about a week away from turning 1 year old. Is it safe to turn her forward-facing and what about the pediatrician's recommendation? We are really confused.
