Default Question for those of you with rear facing car seats

Have a question for those of you with rear facing car seats. What do you use to protect the back of your seats? My 1 yr old is still rear facing and her feet are now kicking the back of my new seat. Was wondering if there was anything good to protect it from her snow boots.

Thanks

rear facing would be facing the back seat wouldn't it
either way i use some cheap black seat covers to keep my seats clean, and hide the lovely mulit-coloured interior
either that or plastic bags over the boots

Maybe get one of those plastic sheets that you cut to fit for the trunks of cars, cut it to fit the seat back and punch two holes in the top use the head rest posts through the holes to secure it in place..... just an idea. I just turned my rear facing sear around this weekend

Its not a "time" thing anymore its by weight, which makes more sense since we all grow at different rates. Safety experts now say to keep them rear facing as long as possible, its safer.
