Turning Children Back Rear Facing – what's the big deal? – A Rear Facing Family

“I Have Just Read That Turning My 3-Year-Old Back Rear Facing Is Safer But I’m Afraid He’ll Hate It!”

This is one of the most common subjects I come across while spreading awareness of extended rear facing. The child isn’t always 3, some times they are actually 2 or even 4 – so you can pretty much put in any age here, the questions are usually the same. 

As stated many parents are afraid that their child won’t like being turned back rear facing after being forward facing for so and so long, but the truth of the matter is that I have yet to come across a case where this wasn’t possible. At the end of the day – you are the parent, and the child is a child.

I'm a mother of 3 and an Extended Rear Facing Car Seat Expert Advisor. Phew...long title!

I decided to take my passion for car seats and children's safety to the blog world in 2012, and since then 'A Rear Facing Family' has been a part of the blog world and social media.

I run an in-car safety blog, but I am also a part of some Facebook groups where you can get help regarding car seat safety. :)

I work as a freelance writer, product reviewer and more. I also freelance at events as a guest speaker where I specialize​ in-car child safety and car seats – especially the importance of extended rear facing car seats as the subject. :)
