Yes, they must meet both criteria. And I've read that if you can leave it rear facing for longer than that it's safer. Your seat manual will have the upper weight and height limits for rear facing.

Yes, but Jenn I was looking at Jeremys seat last night and I dont want to turn it around, ever. Turning around means I have a big boy!

1 year and 20 lbs is the minimum. Waiting longer is safest.
