A lot of people ask me if I’m not afraid that I wont see my rear facing children.
They also ask me about the legs, wont there be a leg issue? A room issue? What if we crash and their legs are “like that”, wont that damage them? – and so forth. A lot of questions and concerns.
Understandably so if you have never really had any experience with extended rear facing, or haven’t really had the pleasure of seeing it in action.
Let me show you what I see my friends.
And as for the legs, well.. there’s plenty of room for them too.
You see, ERF seats are made to accommodate sitting with your back rear facing, so they are generally built to give you better leg room then you would have if you just took a forward facing seat and turned it around. Something a lot of people tend to think is what an ERF seat is. hehe
I hope this has shown you that it is in fact not a problem to rear face.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! :)
