I’m in a funky mood about the whole carseat, rear facing until at least age 2, thing.  We turned Lexi when she turned 1.  We consider her safe.  She is almost 2 and I’m not turning her back around.  I don’t understand how a child sits with their legs crossed, or up on the seat back, or hanging over the edge of the carseat.  I understand they are saying this is safer, but I also feel like if we turn Lexi back around now she will have a massive freak out.  I guess it will be something I have to do if/when I have future children, but for right now this is the decision I’m making.  I don’t like feeling like I am being judged for this decision either.  “Mommy” forums are so hateful and hurtful.  Reading through a forum I’m not even a member of, and seeing the way they were berating others who didn’t have their same opinion just floored me.  They actually went off on a lady for not having a 5 star crash test rated car.  Telling her she shouldn’t have her children in it at all.  It was a decent car…newer model year, not driving around in some clunker with no seatbelts or roof.  I couldn’t help but feel like I was being judged and I’m not even a member there.
IDK, I’m in a depressed kinda mood.
