I am conflicted as to what to do. I just turned ds around in my car last week - he is the size of a 2 yr old too, so he was very squishy and I was having a tougher and tougher time buckling him in. I asked the ped and he said switch him. I had to remove the seat anyway to move up the straps, so I figured it was a good time to turn him. Dd turned at 10 months since she was even taller and my car (and her carseat) was smaller then.

I had to turn Everett because he hit the weight limit for rear facing safely last month. It doesn't matter if their legs need to be crossed. Everett would put his up the back of the seat. It's their back length and weight that matter. Everett is wearing a 4T and is a huge, solid kid.

Christine is 9 and still in a hbb. She's much too small to fit into a seatbelt properly. Nicole is in one too for the side impact protection it provides. They will stay in them for as long as I can get them to. Their boosters will fit small adults!

We turned him back- I had a marathon 70 in the car ds never even rides in. When I put that in rear facing he fit awesome. I wasn't worried about having to cross his legs- it was just getting impossible to maneuver him so he was sitting right in the seat in the other one. I figured it was better to have him forward and strapped in properly than rear facing and strapped in poorly, but luckily we solved that problem.

I'm glad you were able to work it out! We have a Britax Boulevard for Everett, but it only goes to 35 lbs rear facing. He's so big it was a little hard to get him in, but it was a minor inconvenience. Everett lasted until 22 months when he got too heavy. My baby is a lightweight (of course I got a huge infant seat for him!) and will probably be rear facing until he's three. I plan to rear face until he is too heavy. It's so much safer!
