    he asked...

    So, I put ds3 ff. He will be 4 in Feb and still fits rf. The only reason being it was installed that way earlier this week for one of the 6yo twins used it. First off, as front seat passenger I have less room if I want to give him a little foot room, and he ASKED to have his seat "backwards" again I was ok leaving him ff and thought he would like it, evidently not! Am I the only person that has more room with a rf?

    I love not being kicked in the back when they are rf'ing behind me. And yes, they complain about leg room. But being 5'11", they have to deal. I can't sit closer and drive. So I've shown them ways to put their feet/legs to be more comfy. But yes, I didn't have that issue with a rf'ing seat behind me.

    For some reason he likes rf. Idk if its because he is more reclined, or he can face the other kids. To be honest, idk if I wanna do the whole change up and install. I hate installing the mr rf, takes me forever in my capt seats :/
