    What seat do you have callmedragon?

    There's a great carseat group on facebook, it's called: Child restraints. Is your child restrained correctly
    There's heaps of great info there about seats!

    We have Infa Secure Neons and our 2yr old still rear faces. We did turn him around 1yr because at the time we had a weight based Mother's Choice. He stayed forwatd facing for a few weeks until we bought the Neons. We always had people telling us he was too old to be rear facing. Most people now know not to say a word ;-)

    The newer designed seats are much easier because it has a height marker which tells you when it is safe to turn your child. It then tells you when they've outgrown it forward facing too (requiring the next stage up).

    As long as safely possible. DS1 was 9 months, turned due to reflux and constant vomiting rearwards, was worried about him choking.

    DS2 was 11 months.

    DS3 will be at least 12kg before we turn him.

    DS was 21.5 months old. He had not hit 12 kgs but I was pregnant and over the tantrum every time I tried to put him in the car. Even at nearly 4 he is still in a regular FF car seat instead of a booster seat (but he is only 14.5 kgs).

    DD is 16 months and still RF. She is tiny so I assume will be RF for ages yet.

    The Infa Neon will RF up to 30 months (of average height). Not enough for my giant though

    I changed DS to forward facing when he turned 1.. DS is a very tall boy though. He's only 2 & he's as tall as his 4 year old peers & cousins.

    Fingers crossed something comes out soon for your DS!
    Always take CREP with a pinch of salt! Infa do their own independent testing (most intensive than SNS), and any seat that passes Australian standards is a fantastic seat. They have to go through 25 stringent testings to pass. And there's no just sorta passed, it's a binary pass or fail. We have it in DF's car and it's awesome!!

    Is there a reason you say to take the CREP ratings with a grain of salt? Just curious, as I am using them as a basis of car seat shopping at the moment. I would be more worried about "independent" testing by people employed by the manufacturers.

    ETA - I hope that question comes across in the right way.... I am genuinely curious!!
