I would never turn my kids FF before age 4. I feel that age 4-5 is a good point to switch to FF. RF is far safer even at that age but kids are more develped so it's a good tradeoff.

We are very fortunate here to have seats which easily keep kids comfortably rear facing for a long time. Most seats last until age 4 and 55 lbs. Britax Multi Tech and Britax Two-Way easily last to age 5-6 and have 55 lbs weight limit as well - Rear Facing Car Seats ⢠55 lbs Rear Facing Car Seats
Annika: 3.5 years RF Britax Hi-Way ⢠Daniel: 6 years FF Britax Adventure

o/t but adventuredad, i don't know if you recall, i PM'd you way back about an RF that would fit in a mazda rx8...?

well, the baby arrived, we traded for a mazda 3 (got the td sport, so not too boring ) and got a BeSafe izi combo seat which isofixes in RF for up to 4 years thanks for the advice way back, it definitely made me go the extra mile to find a RF that fit.
