    Diono R100 vs R120

    Are the weight limits the only differences? I've pretty much decided (at least for today) that when baby #4 arrives in July, I will give the baby DD2's RA55 and get DD2 a Radian that can also serve as a back up for the baby and DD2 has a CA as a backup and in a real pinch could use a GN or FR85 from DD or DS. I like having lots of back up options. DD2 is 21 months now and 23 lbs so I will still have her RF unless in a complete bind since she will be 2.5. I just can't imagine ever needing the weight limits on the R120. DD1 is 6.5 and around 50 lbs with about an 18" torso, DS is 4 and about 43 lbs (dd2 is smaller than he was at that age anyway).
    I'm hoping a Radian with angle adjuster and no head wings will help DD2s carsickness though it has been getting better lately. So is there any reason to get the R120?

    I think the cover options are different too.

    Re: Diono R100 vs R120

    The R120 comes with infant support cushions and the R100 doesn't, so that might be a consideration for you as well.

    I have always been under the impression that head wings help reduce car sickness because they limit the view out the side windows and encourage a child to look straight ahead out the front (or back, if RF) window.
