    What do you think of the fit?

    So...what do you think of the fit? The straps are snug, not too high above her shoulders (which completely shocked me!) and she likes it! FTR, this baby will NOT be riding in this seat for at least another 2-3 years...she is much, much too little.



    ***THIS PICTURE IS OF A SEAT BEING USED INCORRECTLY***
    This baby is only 7 months old and weighs 12 pounds. She should be rear facing until she is much, much, much bigger. At her rate of growth that will be 3 or 4 years old or older.

    Actually, I think it's pretty bad...mostly the hip area. She looks unsupported. Bet she'd look better with the Argos padding.

    She looks quite pleased. I just wanna squeeze her!

    Looks perfect!

    You might want to remove the headrest, though. She doesn't look big enough for it yet.

    Re: What do you think of the fit?

    cutie!!!!

    I am amazed at how well little ones fit in the GN. NOT FOR TRANSPORT!! but I remember having to do something with older son in the car and strapping in my little one.. Maybe about 1 just to keep him safe while I tended to the other one in the car that he fit well.

    She is adorable!

    Re: What do you think of the fit?

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere, once, that that seat has a 20lb minimum. But y'know, 12 is more than half of 20, so it's all good.

    What is it with you people and wanting to squeeze my baby? Come on up. Squeeze away! I don't know if I can wait long enough for the Argos padding though...

    And 7 is more than 1/2 of 12 months too, right? I mean, she is ALMOST sitting up on her own. And she has good head control. The manufacturer must be wrong, correct?

    Well I was hoping you were coming up my way so I could squeeze her! But now that I know you are close (well sort of!) I might need to make a trip down there. And make a trip to BBB!

    Aren't babies made for squeezing??? I thought that's why they were squishy.

    Too cute!

    A side note, I can't believe she is only 12 pounds! She looks bigger than my 17 pound 5.5 month old.

    She has really filled out and is "looking older" the past month or so. But yup, weighed in at 12 pounds, 5 oz on Friday!
