    What if your baby reaches the max weight before 2 years? Do they have bigger rear facing seats? My lil guy is almost 15 lbs already and he's only 2 months! I'm worried he's going to out grow his seat too soon.

    I have the Evenflo Titan Elite and it rear faces up to 50lbs,and I believe there may be a Britax or some other higher end brand that makes one with an even higher weight limit for RF'ing. Good luck! P.S. His weight gain may slow down as he grows. DS1 was a really chunky baby but now at 2 1/2, he's just tall and lanky-50th percentile for weight.

    We have done tons of research on car seats since these new recommendations came out, as we also have a larger baby. She is in the 99th percentile for height and 93rd for weight. We have decided to go with the Britax Boulevard, which can be used rear facing up to 65 pounds. It also has amazing reviews. I found several reviews for this seat where people said that their cars were totaled after a wreck and the baby didn't have a scratch on them. The Britax seats are more expensive, but you can't put a price on your baby's safety.
