    Shoulder width comfort or saftey issue?

    I don't know if this the right spot to put this.
    Title says is all. My DD2 shoulders are to wide for her MA but she still has room in the shoulder height. She is on the last slot of the seat. She hasn't complained to me but again she likes things tight. I am trying to wait for the cow moo frontier. I don't like the sport mesh and she would do better with the plush fabric.

    Re: Shoulder width comfort or saftey issue?

    If she is able to get her back against the back of the seat, I don't think it's a safety problem. If her shoulders are so wide that she can't really get fully in the seat, then she isn't properly positioned and the harness will be too loose, even if it's snug on her. There will be extra because of the gap between her body and the seat.

    Thanks. No she can get her back against the seat. Her shoulders are slightly curved forward. She is just a big little girl 3 1/2 yrs old and at 42#/43 inches tall. Now to decide to let her use her cow seat or her GN for vacation in 2 weeks. She is in love with her cow seat.
