When to turn Car Seat From REar Facing to Forward?

I think I remember reading here that the new recommendation is to wait until a child is two but I can't find anything to validate this.

Am I just not remembering correctly? My SIL is sure that I am wrong. (As usualChat Icon

The new American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation is to keep a child rear facing until the age of two.

We waited until 2 before the new recommendation... The longer rear faced the safer.
