    CCO RF on a plane

    Last time I installed the CCO RF on a plane the buckle was right under DS' feet and seemed to make an uncomfortable lump, so I re-installed FF (no big deal since he's 2+ and RFs in the car). Was it a weird plane or is that always the case? Any other suggestions?

    That was always the case for us, but DD never seemed to notice. We didn't use it RF on planes past 18 months though so maybe that's why.

    We used it RF with DS1 until 25 months and he never complained about the buckle. I think it does always wind up in the same area when installed RFing on a plane.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll try again this weekend. It's a red-eye so I don't want to risk an unhappy toddler!

    The same thing happens with the classic marathons. We've flown with them rearfacing and never had a complaint. Bring a receiving blanket or the like to pad the area if you're concerned.

    Thanks for the reassurances! Turns out DS didn't care and slept LIKE A CHAMP through four flights round trip.
