    Most support/recline

    Which FF seat (convertible or combination) has the most support/recline FF? Besides the MR. Kid is 3.5 years, 37lbs, 39" tall. Has mixed tone and tightness on right side. Car sleeping happens often. Wears 5T shirts. Has almost outgrown the MR FF.

    What about the True Fit? It has 2 recline options to use either FF or RF. The new SI model looks like the wings come in closet to the head which could be better for sleeping.

    Don't worry about it. Acronyms all blend together some days for me so it's easy to miss.

    I'd say a FR85 if you can find one.

    I think it would be very supportive, but I don't think it would be very reclined. My 4 yr old appears to be quite upright, almost more so than his FR85...... Despite how slanted my Explorer's seats are.

    Seats we own are: radian x3, GN (expires this year), MR (almost outgrown), FR85, and clone. If I do the FR85 in one vehicle, I can try other seats out. Almost positive without trying that the GN won't work for her. Radians seem to be hit or miss for slumpy kids; mine don't have headwings. But DS2 was a slumper in everything but the FR and radian. So it might work. Though my love affair with that seat is limited to rf'ing. I need something good and supportive for the main vehicle.

    I can get you a picture of my DS in his Sureride this evening (I'll be picking him up from daycare in a couple hours), but he is much larger than your kiddo needing it (45-48lbs and 44"). I'd throw my younger DS in there for comparison too if you want me too, but he is about 10lbs lighter and 7" shorter than yours, lol.

    If you want them, here they are

    Sean:






    Disclaimer, the little one does NOT ride in this seat, which is why the straps are at his ears . This photo op was the first time he has ever sat in a FFing seat :-P

    Hmmm. I wonder what the shoulder width of the radian is compared to the sure ride. I will keep options open since we have seats but some are expiring and others just might not work.

    The Pria has two recline positions for FF. 22-40 lbs for more reclined, 41-70 lbs for less reclined. It's very supportive. I think I have a picture of Sass somewhere in it FF if you'd like me to look.

    ETA: Pics

    This is actually in the most upright position, because DH installed it and didn't know it needed to be in the 2nd position. His vehicle seats are also very upright (pickup) so I think there would be more recline to it in say, a van or car.

    Re: Most support/recline

    The combination of minnie mouse dress and girlie pria is too much

    I am not sure how the height would work out since I thought the myride was pretty tall but would a nextfit work? Lots of recline options, very supportive, cozy, and on sale now at albeebaby...

    You would get more use out of a fr85 but I am not sure I'd call it supportive. It is comfortable but more flat than scoop-like, like the nextfit is.

    I think I need a field trip to Buy Buy baby. Lol. I don't really warn to have to buy 4 new seats. But I need something In The van that will work well. Darn tall kid. RF'ing is just so much easier!
