Car Seat safety, will your child put up a stink?

So they're at it again..."They" say that your child should be at least 2 years if not older before they ride facing forward in the car seat. OF COURSE we all want to do what is best to keep our little people safe from harms way. And how ironic that I recently just turned my 20 mo. old daughter forward?! Previously I had read from some other source that its best to keep the little ones in their seats for as long as possible and up to the max weight and height for the specific car seat. Having to move around the seats from car to car, we chose to switcheroo her from facing back to front. But now, to do so again might really be the start of WW III. Safety is a non-negotiable in our house. Raised with the standard, "I'm not leaving this driveway until all seat belts are fastened" we have begun the same discussion in our car. However, I am not looking forward to the short term struggle I am sure my d.d. is going to give, and she will not go without a fight.  For more information, follow this link:
