Despite the laws regarding an infant in Rear Facing position for 1 year and 20 lbs, why do parents still tend to switch for Forward Facing before the child is 1 year old, even though their weight is over 20 lbs? I know they say the infant is happier and they can see out the window and all, but the child shouldn't have a say in how they sit, cause they don't know about accidents and how they can be severely hurt in a crash, only the parents know. So, why make the child happy, by putting them in more danger? The child should have no say in how they sit, since they have no idea about safety. Even if their legs are really long, wouldn't it be better to have potentially broken legs than a spinal injury? Also, I do realize some have siblings in which are sitting forward, but should THAT really give you the idea to make the decision to FF your child too young, for the child happiness? I just want to know, why parents (not the ones who keep RF, but the ones who do it too early) do this? Why?

For example , Graco convertible seats have babies later - face up to 20 pounds , and then the head facing 20-40 lbs . Then there are the Graco car seats for children who are only 20-40 pounds. Both say that the child has to be over a year old at the front of the seat ... What is the difference? If both babies are allowed 20 pounds , why do they have to be in a year? My state has a law that the baby has to be in a seat face up to 1 year , only prevented from up to 4 years old. Is it fair that , on average, across the state laws say that a baby under 1 year must be looking back ? I want the best for my 8 months. daughter, but you need to understand the difference first!
