I was just wondering when people turned their car seat around. My daughter's doctor said that I could turn her around but I am nervious about safety. My daughter is 13 months old and 23 pounds. I am not sure on her height but she is in the 95th percentile for her age.
Yes, you can turn it around. I did that around that age for my son. He was a very big boy and his carseat said it's safe to turn it around after 22 lbs and 30 inches long I think. Check the label on the carseat, it should tell you when you can turn it. But I turned it when I felt comfortable doing it. By that time my sons legs were scrunched up and I knew it was time.
They say you can turn your child around at age 1 but they need to be at least 20 pounds. She is ready. I was nervous about it as well, my son is 13 months and we turned him around exactly at a year but he was 28 pounds. He is a big boy! I bought him a seat that could be rear facing and then front facing since he outgrew the infant seat, but wasn't quite a year yet.
