    I might raise the headrest a notch, but it looks good to me.

    It's not bad, but I'd also like to see what it looks like with the headrest up a notch.

    i was thinking about moving up the headrest. Its currently in the lowest setting..will try that when i pick her up from school later. She hates the turbo so much. She tried the PWSGL and loved it so much more.

    It looks good to me. I initially thought the headrest might need to go up a notch, but it's hard to say with her arms raised since that likely raised her shoulders up - both making it deceiving where the belt guide is in relation to the shoulder, and how close to her neck the shoulder belt actually is. If it's naturally sitting as close to her neck IRL as it is in the picture, then that extra position up might put the shoulder belt right against her neck - in which case definitely leave it in the position it's in now.

    The lap belt fit is great though.

    Looks good, to me it looks like the shoulder belt should be more in the center rather than against the neck that much, but it could be you need to raise the headrest a bit, or it is just hard to tell with the pic

    My 6.5yo is also 44 lbs and about 45 in and she fits GREAT in a TB- she is not in it full time either for the same reason, I cannot get the girl OUT of her Regent!! It IS like the Lazy Boy of car seats, I am telling you she loves that seat!

    I'd raise the headrest one notch, but other than that, it's a great fit!
