    Joey (3.5) RFing in the Next Fit

    Finally found a seat for our three across that he has room to grow in. And holy leg room! He really doesn't fit much in any RFing seat anymore. His legs are too squished. He has so much room. And I always discounted it because it was such a high base, but my seats must be set really low because...

    Are all the recline positions acceptable on the nextfit?

    So I just got a nextfit and was reading the manual and i didn't see it address which recline positions are ok for rfing and ffing. Are all of them ok as long as the bubble is between the arrows ? Also I didn't see anything about height limits for rfing. Is it an inch from the shell or headrest?

    New britax short harness height?

    So in my quest for a 3 across that works I went to buy buy baby. I finally decided all that will work that allows the girls to buckle themselves is a convertible on a narrow base I tried a bunch and the britax 3G seats actually for the best and gave each girl at least another 2" to buckle. So...

    Harness seat suggestions

    So being newly single and poor I had to downsize our grand caravan for better mileage and a lower payment. Well after trying to cram three seats in the back of tons of sedans they finally fit in an 08 dodge avenger. Except I was dumb and didn't actually install the seat. So I have my grand...

    Head wise 70 question

    I couldn't find anywhere in the manual it said. Can all head positions be used rearfacing? All it said was straps at or below the shoulder and head 1" below red handle

    Whats the scoop on forward facing seats nowadays?

    Ill probably be turning my son FFIng for good this summer. So it's time to think about seats It's been quite a while since we used harnessed seats. Back when we did the nautilus and frontier were about it. So that's what we had. I'm hoping newer ones have come out since then He's been FFing in...

    So out of the loop. RFing seat for 3 year old

    I haven't kept up on new seats and wanted to know if anything new is out there. Right now DS is in a peg convertible. While he has miles of room, the sides make it difficult to get him in and out. I looooove the seat though :(. So looking for something else. Maybe something new. He will be 3...

    Weird nbb belt fit

    Evelyn has started riding in a nbb. She rode in a harmony once and in the 3rd row of my grand caravan the fit was awful. We waited a while and just got a no back turbo. She's plenty tall enough (52") but the fit is just weird. The shoulder belt is where it needs to be but it's like two inches...
