Once a child is done rear facing, it is time to turn them around and use that convertible car seat forward facing (if they fit of course). Generally, we will see children forward facing starting from between ages 2-4 and going up until around 5-6 years old before they move into a booster seat. Some forward face earlier than others, some remain harnessed longer than others. There are many factors that go into determining when the child will start forward facing and when they will be able to transition into a booster. There are 2 "categories" of forward-facing seats in Canada (if we don't include all-in-one child restraints). Convertible seats are usable as rear-facing and forward-facing seats with the built in 5-point harness. Combination seats work as forward-facing seats with the built in harness and as a belt-positioning high back booster used with the seat belt. All of our harnessed child restraints in Canada have harness weight limits up to 65lbs but many children will outgrow the seat by another fit requirement before reaching the weight limit.
