    In comparison, my 3 year old (in October) niece has almost outgrown the MA70 FF, and is on the top slots of the Maestro with MAYBE 2 inches to grow!

    Re: My nieces tiny torso

    My DD is pretty petite, but I have no idea if she is legs or torso (since I don't know what the average torso height is for her age)

    We JUST got a tribute for her and she fits really well for now. She is 18 mths, 18lbs, and 29 inches tall. I 'think' it will get her to about 2.5- 3 rfing.


    Do you know what harness slot she is on? I am just curious

    Re: My nieces tiny torso

    the last rf slot...she is all legs and no torso I knew she'd still fit FF but I had no clue she would fit RF. It just makes me mad that my step brother has had her FF since she was 10 months old I'm secretly going to try her out in the car tomorrow and see how she does...my parents think i'm the one thats a nut

    Oh wow! So maybe my DD is legs and no torso too? I mean, She is 18mths old and on the same slots as a 6 mth old!

    Yeah, my family and friends think I am nuts too, even though we couldn't legally ff dd yet because she is 18lbs but still! I don't care...I know that I am doing the best that I know how and one day it will be the norm to rf to the limits. see, we are cool before it's cool lol

    Re: My nieces tiny torso

    Wow, that is a short torso!

    How long is her torso? How tall is she overall?

    She is definitely a car seat person's dream child!
