When Dominic was an infant we set a goal for ourselves to keep him rear facing in his car seat until he was at least two years of age. I'm very passionate about car seat safety and the greatest risk of injury to a forward facing child is between 12 and 24 months of age. We felt that by keeping him rear facing until two years old we had done our best job to protect him in case of an accident. Now that he's over two, we knew we would turn him around one of these days. We finally got around to it on Monday.. over a full month after his birthday. We weren't in a rush or anything and he was totally comfortable the other way. He's now officially a forward facing boy! His first couple car rides were pretty funny. He seemed nervous! Now it's just fun to hear him narrate our drive. Here he is on his very first trip!!
