I am just finding out what everyone is doing with their car seats. In Australia, children from 6 months can be turned forward (currently trying to make forward facing before 1 or 12 kilos law). It is however recommended that you keep your little one reverse facing until 12 kilos or 1. I have decided to do this and as a result have received a lot of criticism from friends and family because "she should be facing forward" or "she's strong enough to be turned around". I am happy with my decision as I believe (and current research supports) that she is safer rear facing. Which way is your child sitting, and has your family supported this decision?
