My DD is 32 in.and 28 pounds, 2 years old and front facing now.
I just can't decide!
Well, two things. I wouldn't buy either seat for a forward facing child, as you're spending money on a feature that you won't be using.
That being said, I wouldn't have a two year old front facing. Per NHTSA recommendations, all children under 4 who fit rear facing should continue to ride that way. 32" and 28 lbs is REALLY petite, and there's no reason your child wouldn't fit rear facing for another two years in pretty much anything.
Can I convince you to turn your child back around? She's be significantly safer, and her spine is still at risk in a forward facing crash, and will be for a few more years.
