Assuming you are in the US or another country where you can get a good rear facing seat.... She should be rear facing until at least 2 years old or when she outgrows the weight/height limit on a good convertible seat (even most of the cheap ones can rear face to 35 pounds).

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'toddler car seat', but rear facing is the safest option for as long as possible. My son is on the small side and rear faced til 3 (and 31 pounds)... technically he could have rear faced til 4 by his size (35 pounds at his 4 year check up).

It's so easy to keep them rear facing and SO much safer.
