My daughter is 29 1/2 inches tall and 20 lbs. My current car seat instructions say to discontinue use once the child is 29 inches. I asked the doctor if this meant I should switch to the next size car seat (which I own) which is forward facing, and he didn't give me a clear answer! He said "Well, its only a couple more months to her 1st birthday. Its ok if her legs are bent, as long as her head isn't too close to the top of the seat. Why don't you just wait." Her head is only an inch from the top and her legs are definately bent. I don't know what to do, I want her to be safe and I know its recommended to stay rear facing until at least the first birthday, I want her to be safe!
