Hey moms, I know the law says it's legal to front face at one year and 20lbs but every safety recommendation I find says that it's still incredibly dangerous up to about 4 years! I was very easily convinced to rear face Eric until 3-4 years because his safety is my big concern. I'm wondering why so many moms dint do the same.
Is it because they don't know the facts?
Is it because it's inconvenient?
Is it because of habit or tradition?
Or is it that they don't believe the experts?
Please, it sound sooooooooo obvious to me to rear face, I don't knowhow it's not more common. I don't understand why every mom isn't rear facing their child for years. It's just unimaginable the amount of little ones front facing and I can't change it until I know why so many moms are ignoring the safety in the car...
Anyone have some insight as to why this happens?
