In an infant car seat, you can adjust the straps at anytime to adjust to your baby as they grow. You position your baby facing forward once he is 20lbs or 1 yrs old. There is conflicting answers to this, because some babies weigh 20lbs+ before the one year mark. You can call your local State Police Dept and they will have the guidelines, as well as showing you exactly how your infant car seat should be installed and secured.
