Are any of you using a convertible car seat in its rear-facing position? If you are, would you mind posting the brand, model, and dimensions? My twins are almost 20lbs but they don't hit 1yr adjusted age until Sept. so I need to find a convertible car seat that will fit in my car as a rear-facing seat. When I e-mailed companies to ask about dimensions, I was given the dimensions of the seats when they are front-facing, which is not what I need right now. Thanks in advance for your help.

We have and Eddie Bauer one too ... but my husband has the truck away from home right now - but I can say - it's HUGE facing backwards. Takes up probably 2.5 feet, my seat, right in front of the carseat has to be pushed all the way forward. We have a big vehicle too - a GMC Yukon XL!

I have an Evenflo Titan, when I bought it it was rated above the very exensive Britex on consumers repsorts for Safety. It can run $79 to $99, you can get at target, Wlamart or babies R us. hey come in delux models etc, but as long as it has Titan in the title it's the same one. If you are near a store I recommend buying them and trying to install and see if they fit. My 3 year old started to use it as a rear faicng when his legs were too long for the baby carrier car seat. He is still using it and hs plent of room. It goes up to 47 lbs, but at 30lbs and 38" you can get a booster seat with a back. The kids will be ready for one another one buy then. I think at that time they make booster seats with the option to remove the back at age 4 or 40lbs, I am not sure about the exact weight and height.

We have an Eddie Bower, but we got it (wow) two years ago so I don't remeber the model & demensions. Most carriers can be used up to 30 pds, but we actually switched the convertable at about 10m. (facing backwards of course) because our son was so long and had grown out of the straps. And then of course he didn't even hit 20 pds until he was 14m. :-)
