I dont have kids yet, but I’m definitely rear facing until 2. Past that if they’re smaller kids. 

I dont know what your price range is, but here are some that can be rear faced.

This is my favorite, and I’ve already told FI that if we have a girl, this is what we’re getting. XD

The recommend to the age of 2 rear faced or until the child out grows the infant carrier. My son is almost 15 months and will be needing a new car seat soon. He is length wise almost out grown the infant carrier.  The next one we get will be forward facing.

My son will rear face as long as absolutely possible which will probably be 3 or 4  years old at this rate.  My friends 4 year old has been just fine rear facing in my sons seat when he needs a ride.  My son hit 20 pounds (the smallest you can forward face anway) at 16 months old so he’s on the littlier side.

My twins rear faced until they turned 2, per my research and ped’s reccomendations. They had already outgrown their infant seat. I bought them convertible car seats that could rear face, so we did that. At two we just spun it around.

My son was 20lbs at 4 months, 30lbs at 6 months so we had to get a convertable pretty early for him. Did not rear face after he turned 1. His legs were extremely cramped and he hated going any where. He outgrew the shoulder straps on his seat by 3 yrs old and has been using the regular seat belt with the guide that is on his car seat and that fits him perfectly.

 

I just wanna say that an incorrectly put together car seat and straps on wrong are way more dangerous to your child in an accident than facing forward. My pet peeve is when parents don’t know how to properly install a car seat. Most trooper stations/fire houses will gladly show you how to do this.
