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?
Very interesting info. I've read it before, but never knew where to look to read it straight from the source. (I'm obsessive like that). So thanks for that
I think my answer before this thread would have been after 3yo. But now I may be leaning more towards 4yo.
Unless I learn something more, or something changes, I doubt I will insist on rf'ing past 4yo.
Ds1 was turned ff'ing at 15mos. I'm shocked that I even considered it! I'm lucky that we never had an accident, and ds2 will definitely be rf'ing LOTS longer than that.
