    16 months for ds2 because he outgrew the height markers. 8months for ds1 because he was too heavy to rf in the seat we had.

    10 months and still rf, I think she's probably got another 2 months or so until she's too tall

    DS3 will hopefully be rear facing until he is at least 2.

    I turned DS's seat at 10 months. He'd reached the size requirement (according to the seat recommendations) so needed to be turned.

    Still rear facing... she's 13 months...and still in a capsule! She's petite. Hopefully another couple of months til I need a new seat. I'm hoping isofix will come in soon before I need to change the seat. If I can still have her rear facing in a convertible seat I'll probably do it if she likes it.

    DS is almost 7 months and still RF, he's about 1.5kg away from the weight limit in his convertible seat but I'm getting him a new one soon. I didn't even think to look into it before he was born, I just assumed all seats were the same but apparently it recently switched to height markers rather than weight and the seat we got was on clearance, probably because of that change. So, I'll be getting him a newer one which apparently goes up to about 12 months although I'd really love to find one that he can stay RF until he's 2...

    DS is 14.5 months and still RF. The longer the better.
