    Rear-facing carseat for up to 30 pounds?

    They usually go for up to 20 pounds rear-facing, does anyone have luck getting one of those that would let you rear-face for up to 30 pounds?

    Studies have shown that it's best to keep baby rear-facing for as long as possible:

    I think the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio goes to 30 pounds and is rear-facing.

    I have the eddie baure 3 in one, it can be used rear facing 5-30 lbs, and as a forward facing seat at 22 lbs, it is also a booster seat, but we are not hea vy enough for that yet.

    There are a lot of seats that go rear facing past 20 lbs now,

    Thanks a lot, ladies! Sorry I wasn't clear enough in my original post. As my daughter is already 1 year old at 20 pounds, I'm actually looking for a convertible car seat which can be used both rear-facing and forward-facing.

    capital: Do you find the straps of the Eddie Baure hard to twist (and therefore safer)? Did you get it in HK?

    Thanks!

    NO the straps twist easily, I have to make sure that I have them lined up right every time I use it. this is mostly a problem on my 2 year olds seat, maybe because I've used it more. I Have the same seat for my 9 month old, it is still being used rear facing, straps don't twist as much. I will say that seat seat is very big!!! It is very tall, which is not a problem when forward facing, but in the rear facing position, I have to have it on the passenger side, and the passenger seat is pushed as far forward as posslible, and this is in a van, not a car. The seat is tall because it is also a booster. i have heard that the britax seats are smalller, but they are more expensive. I bought them in canada.
