33lbs limit, with or w/o cloths when weighed?

I think the title says it, lol. Our clothing varies in weight a lot and we use cloth which vary it even more. Is the 33lbs weight limit for rear facing for with or without their cloths/diapers? Without we are getting 31.5-32lbs but I need to weigh on a different scale cause I don't think our home one is completely right.

I would turn *my* daughter when she's at 33 lbs clothed. I'm not willing to take the risk, KWIM?

Darn, 33lbs even when clothed. Ours are almost the same age, it feels way too soon to be forward facing.

Buying a Scenera would give you a few more #s, but I guess you have to decide if the $45 is worth it for 2 extra #. AJ is 31 mos and 32#. He's in a Scenera, but will go ffing in his Britax when we get it next month.

I know what you mean. I wish I had the funds and the space to import a Swedish seat, but I think my husband would have a coronary. LOL Especially since our daughter has several seats already.

Lol! The only reason my DH is agreeing to a Britax for AJ is b/c it's tax return time. This will be his 6th seat he's had in 2.5 yrs!

Heh, if I were to count up all the seats my boys have had through the years your head would probably spin. lol As it is Joyjoy has had 2 infant carriers and 3 convertible seats, and we're buying a Touriva for our '96 Jeep, and she's not even 2 1/2 yet!

The naked dummy they've been using is 33 pounds, and an exact number of ounces of clothing is on top of that. But they have a REALLY good scale, and definitely tell you to turn FF at 33.0, not 33.999999 pounds, just to be sure.

speaking of which, would you happen you have a scale, Julie? we don't, and the one at Patient First is a joke....I'd like to keep a close eye on Joyjoy's, she can't stay 30 lbs forever. lol
