Quoting ♥Day Dreamer♥:" Good lord I hope not! LoL! My son is 3 feet tall and just turned two... I can't imagine having him rear facing right now. His legs would be at his chin poor LiL guy!"
Quoting furrbabiesmommy:" My good friend told me that there was a law passed that children now have to be RF till the age of 2 ... [snip!] ... 4 foot 9. Doesn't apply to me, we are ERF and my daughter is 11 months. But I want to be right when I argue with people. lol"it's law here, but not exsacly how you tell it, rear faceing seats go up to a certin weight (whatever it is it should be on the car seat) then a front faceing car seat untell like 20 lbs (or something like that again weight limit should be on the car seat) and then a booster seat untell they are 8 or over a certin weight or hight

Quoting furrbabiesmommy:" well yes you have to take into account the limits of the seat. Brings up a lot of questions about this "law". I'm not finding that it has been made a law....yet. Thanks everyone!"I'm not in the states the only one here I know for sure is a law is the booster seat one the rest I think are car seat limits not actule law
Quoting I LIKE TO MOVE IT!!:" this is the only thing i could find California Law (Effective 01/01/2012): Children under the age ... [snip!] ... seat in the back seat. Children under the age of 8 who are 4' 9" or taller may be secured by a safety belt in the back seat."that is all I could find as well. Oh well I guess she was miss informed. dang. lol
