    I would prefer to avoid an increased chance of serious neck injuries or death (usually from internal decapitation) if we were to be in an accident. There are some videos on youtube which demonstrate the impact a collision has upon an infants neck if they are in the forward facing position too young. Their necks fling forward with so much force, it's really quite scary. I would have my children face rearward for years if our laws permitted (and if I had isofix).
    I could have written your post word for word

    I'll also be waiting for 12kgs. No point introducing the possibility of whiplash!

    A friend turned her dd around as soon as she hit 8kg saying "she wants to see forward"

    How? She didn't know there was a forward until you turned her!
