Why rear-facing car seats are the way forward

Why rear-facing car seats are the way forward

When Autumn turned 15 months old in January, we knew it was time for her to move out of her first car seat as she had reached its limit. From research I’d done when I was pregnant, I knew that I wanted her to be rear-facing for as long as possible.

Two days wasn’t long, but we tried it out the best we could in that time in a bid to unleash its full potential! View Post
