My 9 month old is 20 lbs, Can he be turned forward facing in his carseat?

Nope, not yet! The magic number is 20/12...20 pounds AND 12 months, not one or the other. They say, though, that the longer you can keep them rear-facing, the better. If you get in a car wreck, the rear-facing seat keeps their necks stable because they just don't have the muscles to do it themselves. In the front facing, their heads can be thrown forward and side-to-side more, and can cause more damage.
You're almost there, though! P.S. He's a cutie-pie!
