This is actually a very bad thing to do. Forward-facing seats should
only be used when a child meets minimum height/weight requirements AND
is at least 1 year old.

The age requirement is NOT a proxy for infant size. This requirements is
derived from the neck and spinal development needed to support the head
during a crash in a forward-facing seat.
