    Monterey fit

    This is my skinny minnie dd in her brother's Monterey. She does NOT ride in this seat, but I wanted to check the fit anyway. The seatbelt is a little close to her neck, but that might have been ok if I dropped the headrest down a notch? She really surprised me how well it fit though considering she is 30lbs, 39in tall. I expected the seat to be way too big for her.

    Not too shabby, considering how small she is!
    If you knock the headrest down a click, it should get the shoulder belt away from her neck and more where you want it.

    Re: Monterey fit

    I thought bringing the headrest down a notch might help with the shoulder fit too, just didn't try it because we had to go get her brother from school. (she was just sitting there while we were letting the car, and her car seat cool down some)
