    What is your 8-month-old's torso height?

    And if you have a CCO, what slot are they on?
    Thanks!

    DS is 7 months and on the second slots, without the insert. I should add that he's in 12-month clothing.

    Thank you. My friend is thinking of buying one for her 8-month-old. Her torso is 9 inches. She's worried about it lasting her until 2 for rear-facing.

    Bella was about 7 months old in this picture wearing 9-12 month clothes and on the second slot with no insert. At a year (as of tomorrow) she's just about ready to be bumped up to the third slots.

    Dd (whose head was off the charts large) would have outgrown it by age 2. She had about an inch to go at 18 months when it was crashed.

    9 inches though? That's a petite baby from my perspective. LOL.
