Rear facing to the max
If you're wondering why she's rear facing 2 years longer than the minimum law requirement, and 1 year longer than the aap minimum recommendation, it's because the NHTSA recommends rear facing as long as the child is within size limits of the seat, ideally until 4.
She's in a Britax Boulevard70 and is almost at the height limit, soon she will move to a Chicco Nextfit, which has a higher height limit so she can rear face to the max. I'm estimating til 4.
This blog post should not be your only source of car seat information. I'm not an expert (although I'd love to be) and this post is not all inclusive.
Check out Car Seats For The Littles or The Car Seat Lady for much more inclusive articles.
(That's 2 month old Penny in the Chicco Nextfit next to her btw)
