Officially FF!

Jamie will be 6 next month and has been asking to turn FF. We decided to get her a new seat for her birthday but we wanted to try it out for a little while first (this is Ian's spare and can't stay in the car). We are going to trade in our broken Nautilus to get another Maestro (if she will choose a pattern they have in the store). Today was the first time she rode in it. She's so excited!

Re: Officially FF!

Is that seat going to work for her neck? It looks crazy close together on her.

Re: Officially FF!

She says it doesn't bother her. I might make her some harness pads (out of socks) though. But the Maestro is the only seat I could fit in the 3 across in my 3rd row (except the Radian, but I didn't like the way it installed FF)

Re: Officially FF!

I would move the chest clip down a little bit (like maybe an inch at most) and that should help a little with the straps on her neck.

I envy you. My 5-year-old outgrew it.

Thanks I'll have her try that.

She still has another harness slot to go (and about 12-13 lbs). She is SUPER tiny. She has tons of room left RF in her Radian but um... at 6 I just don't see a reason to keep her RF (since she has been asking)

Re: Officially FF!

Sorry to derail a bit, but what seats do you have 3 across in your third row? We have the same van and I'd like to know a combo of seats that would work in case I ever need to do it. Thanks.

Re: Officially FF!

Until yesterday we had 3 RF Radians (the middle one was a little more reclined). Now 2 RF Radians and the Maestro on the passenger side.
