My son is a little over 18 months at this point and I’ve had several moms ask me why I keep him rear facing or when I will be turning him front facing. I’m probably going to wait at least another 6 months. In fact, I’ll probably go as long as I can. I got a really high rear facing limit car seat (Britax Boulevard) for this reason.
After all, the car seat is for his protection not my convenience.
