Q&A: When can I use a forward-facing car seat?

Since February 2007, the AAP suggests that children ride rear-facing until they reach at least 1 year of age and weigh at least 20 pounds. At that point, they can move to a face forward position. The AAP does add this caveat, however: “It’s best for [your child] to ride rear-facing as long as possible. Convertible seats and some infant-only seats have rear-facing weight limits of 30 to 35 pounds and height limits of at least 32 to 36 inches.
