This is an interesting video about the benefits of leaving your child's car seat in a rear-facing position for as long as the weight limits allow. The clip of the crash test dummies is particularly persuasive.
We still have Charlie riding rear-facing but I have thought so many times how much easier it will be to ride with him when he is front facing. This video suggests a rear-facing seat until age 4! They show an older child in a rear facing booster - I didn't even know those were designed to be rear-facing so I have some homework to do. I also need to check our Britax Marathon to see what the weight limit is for a rear facing baby in that seat.
Unless you like grating, annoying, overly sappy Avril Lavigne songs you can leave the volume off for this one.
