    Default Rear facing babies Q..

    I have 7 month old DD RF'ing...we recently had her car seat installed into our new car and the guy who did it apparently told DH that DD needs to be more upright than she is,something to do with her spine development? ..her seat is still reclined as far as it can go..I'm just wondering those of you with RF babies,is your LO reclined all the way or more up right? Thanks

    I think ours had to be fully reclined rear facing. Maybe read the instructions with your carseat and see what it says.

    It should be reclined to a 45 degree angle, so keep it fully reclined.
