Along with other things that are oh so good for our babies, breastfeeding, babywearing, delayed/selective/non-vaxing, and co-sleeping, this is one of the most critical. It's Extended Rear Facing in carseats. In the U.S., the recommendation is that you can turn babies forward at 1 year and 20 pounds. In Sweden, they leave their kids rear facing for 4-5 years. Once again, Europe is a step ahead with knowing what's good for their babies.
I'm not going to write alot about it, just watch this video. It tells you all you need to know. And please, if your child is forward facing, and should be rear facing still, turn them around, it could save their life.
