    Is a Nextfit comfy forward facing?

    The seat back is so rounded I'm wondering if an older child would be comfortable forward facing. What has your experience been?

    DS2, 14yo, 5 steps
    DS3, 13yo, 5 steps

    My 4 yo tried his brothers nextfit ff a few times but was so uncomfortable no matter what I did to the recline. Its too bucket shaped.

    I am curious about this too. It looks to me like it would be uncomfortable FF too. I am guessing we will just pass down the Nextfit to our younger daughter and move our older one to a combination seat when she is big enough for FF-ing.

    I don't believe it would be, no. I've only played with one in stores but my kids weren't fans of it fully upright. I'd personally just use it rear facing and then switch to a combination seat if I owned one.

    Huh, my 3.7 year old is FF in his NextFit and he seems pretty comfortable. The angle of the recline doesn't seem to bother him at all.
