. . . that says kids must be FF until one AND 20lbs? I had a discussion with some moms about this the other day and I realize I would have sounded more "legit" if I had known where the law is stated.

Thanks ladies!

Sadly, it's not a law. However, it is on most carseats and in their manuals.

Depends on the state . Here in MA, we have a 1 year AND 20 lbs law. Many states have a one year OR 20 lbs law, and some states have nothing

I think our law says "used according to manufacturers directions". The directions on most (all?) carseats say 12 months AND 20 lbs, so I would think using it FF would be illegal?
