    Back pain when in MA?

    Recently Avi has been telling his mom that his MA hurts his back. He is about 1/2-1 inch from the top slots, and has never complained about this before. There is nothing poking his back, it feels very smooth to my hand. Could this be because his feet might be falling asleep? Would a footrest help? Is this just a ploy for attention and because he is 3?

    Thanks

    Aw, all his beautiful curls. Sad.

    Anyway, I'd say it coule be either, or a combination of both. Try getting or making him a footrest and see if it helps him. If not then you can go from there.

    No advice, but HOLY COW HE IS TALL! My son is a month older than him.

    Re: Back pain when in MA?

    could it be that the belts are too tight or to low for him and that could be hurting his wee back by pressure on the shoulder?
    Is the crotch strap sitting ok? Is he sitting back in the seat correctly, not slouching?

    Re: Back pain when in MA?

    It's probably his legs dangling. Joy has started complaining a bit about her MA too. We're using the Regent as her primary seat now and just using the MA in the Suburban (we spend maybe twenty minutes a week in it.)
