: I have an Alpha Omega car seat. Truthfully it was a gift and I hate it. But I'm using it. The directions are impossible to read and are confusing. What I need to know is when do I turn it around. When the baby is 22 lbs or 1 year old or does he have to be both before I face it forward. Help!!

My Pediatrician said to keep them rear facing until they are one because their neck muscles are still not strong enough to support them if you were to stop suddenly or wreck. I'm almost positive this includes even if your child is 22lbs before he is one.
