My son was RF'd until 18months in his dad's car, and 2yo in my car. His dad and I have not been together since ds was 10mo - I tried REALLY hard to get his dad to RF him until 2yo, but 18mo was the best I could do. I don't own a car, but whenever I took DS in a car he was RF'ing until he was 2yo, and then he outgrew the RF on the carseat I own. If I ever buy my own car I will try to get a carseat that will RF him until he's much bigger, but I'm pretty sure that by then he will have outgrown most RF'ing carseats and we will just buy a really nice FF'ing harness that will last a long time.

DS was turned at around 20m because he outgrew his seat and their wasn't anything that would have kept him rf much longer. He was a big, tall boy. He'll remain in a four point harness until he outgrows everything on the market. Right now he is in a Graco nautilus which we like.

 

DD is 2y3m and is still rear-facing and will be until she outgrows her Radian. Same thing with nanny and grandmother. Tough.

 

I love her little legs and neck enough to deal with the complaining that we occasionally have. Tough.
