So DF and I keep arguing over when to turn DS FF in his car seat. He's almost out of his carrier and will be going into the Meridian AHR and DF wants to turn him ASAP... He's only 4 months old... I just don't understand why? He seems to think that because his Dad's DD (21 months now, 5 months then) was constantly unhappy and wouldn't sleep in the car, and when they turned her it all of a sudden changed that it'll be the same with DS.
Does he not understand that it's safer for him to stay RF as long as possible? Yes, DS very rarely sleeps in the car, but he's not unhappy in the slightest! He just jabbers away and likes to stare at everything. He never sleeps in his pram either, he's a very interested baby. I don't see how him not sleeping in the car justifies making him more at risk in the car just so he'll sleep? (which he does do sometimes anyways)
I know this is a silly babble/rant but I don't know how to get it through to him... Ideally I'd like to keep DS rear facing as long as I can. Am I being silly? We've had some seriously heated arguments over it which usually ends in "don't come to me when he's crying and not sleeping!"
