Yes. Which one would you like?
The AAP recommendation to keep children rear facing as long as the convertible allows, recommending that manufacturers design seats that keep kids rear facing to the fourth birthday?
The CHOP study showing a 500% decrease in safety for kids 12-23 months in forward facing seats, with no reason to suggest the number decreases after the second birthday?
The research showing that until the child's spine ossifies, which usually occurs around four, the child is at significantly increased risk of internal decapitation in a forward facing accident?
The abundance of statistical evidence from Sweden, where keeping children rear facing to four is the standard of practice from the early 60s. Their rate of child death is nearly zero, whereas it is the leading killer in the US and countries where rear facing is not as emphasized?
The official recommendation of the DOT/NHTSA/SafeKids to keep children rear facing for as long as possible?
Or you could google.
