    Officially FF!

    Jamie will be 6 next month and has been asking to turn FF. We decided to get her a new seat for her birthday but we wanted to try it out for a little while first (this is Ian's spare and can't stay in the car). We are going to trade in our broken Nautilus to get another Maestro (if she will choose a pattern they have in the store). Today was the first time she rode in it. She's so excited!

    Is that seat going to work for her neck? It looks crazy close together on her.

    She says it doesn't bother her. I might make her some harness pads (out of socks) though. But the Maestro is the only seat I could fit in the 3 across in my 3rd row (except the Radian, but I didn't like the way it installed FF)

    I would move the chest clip down a little bit (like maybe an inch at most) and that should help a little with the straps on her neck.

    Thanks I'll have her try that.

    She still has another harness slot to go (and about 12-13 lbs). She is SUPER tiny. She has tons of room left RF in her Radian but um... at 6 I just don't see a reason to keep her RF (since she has been asking)

    Re: Officially FF!

    Sorry to derail a bit, but what seats do you have 3 across in your third row? We have the same van and I'd like to know a combo of seats that would work in case I ever need to do it. Thanks.

    Re: Officially FF!

    Until yesterday we had 3 RF Radians (the middle one was a little more reclined). Now 2 RF Radians and the Maestro on the passenger side.
