Question about Evenflo Chase Comfort Touch
My baby hates being rear-facing. She always cries when I put her in her seat. How long should we take this? Why is this the recommended method? Will she be facing backwards until she's 18?
According to common recommendations, babies have to be rear-facing until at least one year old and at least 20 pounds, whichever comes last. The reason for this is that in case of an accident, this allows the pressure to be distributed along the entire back and neck of the baby. Some parents worry this might break the baby's legs. It's important to remember that a crash strong enough to break your baby's legs might break its neck and back if facing forward. While nobody wants their baby to be injured in any way, remember that a leg injury is much easier to recover from than back injury.

As a certified car seat technician, I need to tell you that the law in states that your child must remain rear-facing until they are 1 year AND 20 poinds. For your child's safety, they should remain rear facing as long as possible so the carseat absorbs the crash forces rather than your baby's chest. Most rear-facing seats go up to 22 pounds. Many new seats go up to 35 pounds plus the convertible seats (can be used rear and front facing) go to 35 pounds. To be honest though, most babies don't like being rear facing after 18-24 months.

It 1 year old and 20 Lbs or if they are standing well on there own and 20 Lbs. They can be put forward facing that is what I was told by the car seat people through the police.

i say get a new one.. the tolerance level on the plastic, could have been weakened, ever if it were nto in use at the time.. just the impact of the vehicle could have weakened it, i would say especially because it was rear facing, the force fo gravity prolly made it jolt backward which could have weakened it tremendiously
! i vote, new! its so worth spending the extra 250.00for a new one rather then riskin the life and safety of the bambino!
