Forward facing car seats.
Since rear-facing is much safer than forward-facing, we should ask why anyone (besides the driver) would ride forward-facing. Even flight attendants and astronauts sit rear-facing! Still, once your child is too tall or too heavy for his convertible seat's rear-facing mode, he must sit forward-facing and this section will help you make this transition.
Kids who have outgrown their child safety seat's rear-facing height or weight limits should sit forward facing. If your child is still within the height and weight limits for rear-facing, he should remain rear-facing. Rear-facing is 5 times safer than forward-facing!
