    Misc pictures - played "musical seats" today

    Got the TrueFit from Arly today and decided to play around.

    Input needed...

    *DISCLAIMER - cover was not snapped on, this is not the child it is intended for, we did not actually go anywhere.*

    If we were to use it for DD - I was VERY impressed with the amount of legroom. Her feet did not even touch the vehicle seat. But, I liked how upright I was able to get it. She would love it like this - but is the 45 angle mandatory on the TF? And she is leaning forward, that's why you can see her head.

    And, apparently she liked it!

    FF for DS2 (who was asleep at the time of installing, so no model pictures)

    And how my van is....for now anyways! LOL DS2 TF, DS1 Nauti-Booster mode, and DD in the DC.

    Very nice!

    No, 45 degrees is not mandatory. You can go as upright as 35 for the TF.

    very very nice... 45* is only mandatory for newborns... the newer truefits have 2 marks on the leveler... one for newborns and one for older babies.

    And I love the natural recline of the truefit ff.

    SIGH... I just wish it had a 40-45lb rf limit.
