Since we are on the subject does anyone have any ideas why mainstream carseat info has not caught up to longer rear-facing recommendations? We were just at the ped and the hand-out had the standard turn at 12 months or 20 pounds info. Why not catch up?

My first turned at 10 months past 20lbs. didn't know any better.
My second stayed backwards till she was 36 months (2 months before dd2 was born). she was about 28lbs when we switched and it was b/c she was to tall for a confirtable car seat anymore and needed a booster seat.
My third is still rear facing at 21lbs and 14months old. She will stay that way till she reached weight limit or hight for rear facing, also we did turn her around when we took a road trip to fl but it got fliped as sson as we were home.
