Rear facing harness: The rear facing five point harness system is my choice for all infants under two and up to three if your child is still in the seats weight range.

Seems Normal: By 15 mo should have a wide range of speech sounds in their babbling (like p, b, m, d, or n), begin to imitate and approximate sounds/ words modeled by family, and typically say one or more words (not including "mama" and "dada") spontaneously.

Stay rear facing: The aap recently recommended that babies remain rear facing until at least 2 yrs, or later if under the maximum weight for that seat.
