Measuring the room between top of head and seat shell

There used to be a great post about how to actually measure the space between the top of a child's head and the top of the seat shell but I'm not able to find it using search.

I know there's a kind of trick to the angle, but can't remember exactly how to measure. Would someone be so kind and refresh my memory or post a link to the thread that explained it. It had pics that were really helpful!

TIA

Re: Measuring the room between top of head and seat shell

I just went to link back that thread and it seems the pictures aren't working. Is it just my computer? Seems weird that I saw them when Lady1 first linked it but now they're gone.

Can anyone else still see them?

I can see them now, but I have had problems viewing pictures on some threads recently.
