    played with some seats today

    I drove over an hour to Buy Buy Baby to exchange a swing my aunt had gotten the new baby and I could believe all the stuff they had that I have never seen IRL!!
    I tried dd (turned 4 in March) in a Prosport, which I am not sure I like. It was nice, not as well padded as I expected in the back area...I think I like her Frontier 85 better
    Then she tried out a Radian 80, loved it other than it seemed a bit tight in her booty and thighs. There was a lot of room in the harness though...
    Last we tried out the Marathon 70 and I have to say I loved it! She had a ton of room compared to her current MA, which she has about 1/2 inch to the top slot, in the MA 70 she had close to 2 inches and I loved how easy the harness height adjuster is!
    I am hoping to get a seat that she will fit for a while and then pass it down to the baby.

    I have pics but I dont have a clue how to get them from my phone to my email...LOL

    Usually you normally would a text message, except instead of a phone number or one of your contacts, type in your email address.

    You can buy a longer crotch strap, which helps with that.

    I did think the crotch strap was a little short but the problem was that dd has a bubble but so it wasnt very roomy for her and also her thighs were a little squeezed in.
