In brief: Rear-facing car seat

Your baby should be in a rear-facing car seat until s/he is at least 1 year old and weighs 20 pounds.
 make sure your child still meets the height and weight limits of your rear-facing car seat.  carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions when installing new or converting old car seats for your child.
