    There are multiple seats on the market which will get the majority of children to two and beyond. (There are always the very tallest/longest-torsoed children who might not.) Legs can touch the back of the seat--that is not a problem and, in fact, legs are more likely to break while a child is forward facing in the carseat.

    No way either of my children could have riden in a rear-facing car seat until they were two. Both were tall, skinny children who were off the charts for their height. The would have had to ride with their feet propped in the back window!
