    Must turn FF but no top tether

    My daughter is 3.5, 43 inches and just weighed in at 51 lbs. I have a Swedish seat for her in the primary car. She rides in 4 other vehicles during any given week - rf in another Swedish, FF in a headwise properly tethered, and up until today rf in two Foonfs. One of the cars she rides in the...

    3 year old outgrown Foonf!?

    My daughter is 3 1/2, 43 pounds, and 42 inches. She is still RF, but I just realized that her shoulders are already above the top harness slot in her Foonf. Is this even possible? Am I insane? She won't be able to FF at all in either of the TWO Foonfs I own! She has a long torso, but it's not...

    Stroller for tall kid?

    I'm not sure if this is the best place to put this question or if it's even appropriate. I need a new stroller for my 3 year old. She's 42 inches, 40 lbs, all torso. We are going to Disney for SIX days in the fall, and I cannot expect her to walk all day for 6 days. The stroller I have right...

    Tall 3 year old on plane

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to be stuck bringing the Foonf, but just in case I'm missing anything I thought I'd post. I'm flying alone cross-country with my 3 year old in a couple of months. She will be 3 years and 9 months at the time. Right now, she's almost 42 inches and just over 40 lbs. I...

    Axkid Kidzofix vs. Britax Two-Way vs. Foonf vs. Graco MySize vs. Truefit Premier

    Just for the heck of it, I did a little comparison among all the car seats I own (minus the Axkid Minikid, but it's basically the same as the Kidzofix). I don't know who trashed my car, don't judge me. These are all in the second row captain's chairs of a 2010 VW Routan. Please note that she is...

    Question Cheap "throwaway" seat to buy in China

    Some friends of mine are adopting a 2 year old from China. They have learned they will not be able to bring a car seat with them to China when they pick him up, and the adoption agency basically told them not to waste their money having one shipped to the hotel because the shipments never make...

    Britax in a VW Beetle convertible

    Any hope of getting a new gen Britax (not sure which model, but it's not the advocate) RF in a 2013 Beetle? Driver and passenger need the seats back really far. I don't have a ton of experience installing Britax seats - how upright can they be? The child is just over 2 years old and small.

    Minikid vs Kidzofix

    Anyone know - is the Axkid Minikid just the Kidzofix/Kidzone without the giant base, or is it also a shorter shell?

    How much longer does Radian last FF than Foonf?

    I have a friend who has a 4 year old with slightly low muscle tone. He has no diagnosis, but he does really slump and slouch at the end of the day when he's tired - much more so than other kids his age. He's currently RF in a Sureride. He is a smallish sized kid but not super tiny. He's just at...

    Question Overall growth vs torso growth

    Any rule of thumb on how standing height and torso length correspond? I know it must be highly individual, but anyone know of any data? My 2.5 year old is 1 big meal away from 40lbs and hitting the RF limit in the My Size in grandma's car. I am not really interested in FF her, but I have spent...

    Seat begins leaning to one side

    I have no idea why I can't figure this out. I'd love any tips/tricks. This is regarding the Axkid Kidzofix, but I would imagine it could apply to any seat which is why I didn't post specifically in international. When I install the KZ using the seat belt, it slowly (over the course of a few...

    In Search Of Britax Two-Way cover, any color, any condition

    Total long shot, but I really don't want to pay $1 million to ship just a cover from Sweden. My daughter managed to shove half a banana in the hole in the cover for the belt path, and the person whose car it is in didn't notice for a WEEK (in the 100 degree Michigan weather we have been having)...

    Help me pick - friend adopting a baby

    So I have a friend adopting a baby from China. He has a cleft lip and palate and hasn't been a good eater, so he was only 14 pounds on his first birthday. They don't have a lot of details yet, but it sounds like he will still be well under 20 pounds when the bring him home this winter when he is...

    Question No lap belt only - why?

    Can anyone explain why some seats wouldn't be able to be installed with only a lap belt? I know all U.S. seats need to be able to be installed that way, but I know a lot of non-U.S. seats have that restriction. Does anyone know why? Just curious.

    Need to talk this through - which seat which car?

    I am just unable to puzzle this together. Vehicles: 2010 VW Routan minivan, 2013 Kia Forte, 2003 Ford Focus Hatchback, 1988 Olds Cutlass. Seats: Britax Two-way (swedish tethers, must be propped against seat in front of it), Axkid Kidzofix (sweidsh tethers, has a food prop), Clek Foonf, Graco...

    Total car seat geek moment

    So I go pick up my new seat tomorrow. I will have at my disposal: brand new Axkid Kidzofix, Britax Two-Way, a Foonf, and a Graco MySize. I'm totally going to do a comparison sometime this week! Too bad I don't have a Radian to throw in the mix...

    Question Axkid Kidzofix - I know someone has one

    I know I have seen this seat in someone's signature. I was wondering if you have the general exterior dimensions, specifically front to back when installed as upright as possible. Or if you have a general comparison between the kidzofix and the size of a foonf. I need to put it in a kia forte...

    Will Radian last RF the whole 44 inches?

    This seat has been around forever, so I figure someone has input. Should it last a super long-torsoed kid all the way to the max 44 inches RF or is it typically heighted out of before that due to the 1.5 inch rule? I know it's individual based on the child, but anyone have a kiddo with a long...

    Nextfit measurements

    I know there is a link out there somewhere to all the dimensions of the Nextfit. Anyone have it? I've searched 1,000 ways and can't find it again.

    2004 Ford Focus Hatchback

    Anyone know if I can brace a CR (Radian) against the front passenger seat in a 2004 Focus? We can't find the car manual. Or, alternately, anyone know if I can fit a RF Radian with angle adjuster in the rear center of a 2013 Kia Forte (with enough front leg room for a average height 300 lb...
