    How does the angle look on this chicco fit2?

    I installed a chicco fit2 in my Kia Sorento, does the angle look right for a newborn? My car is parked in the driveway at a slight incline, so I can't trust the bubble indicator. The recline foot is not extended all the way.
    Also, do you have any tips for checking the angle? I have another base installed in our other car and I'm not sure the angle is correct there, either. I don't have pics of that one, but could take some tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Thanks for any assistance you can provide!!

    Re: How does the angle look on this chicco fit2?

    It's hard for me to say (difficulty on a small screen) but I'd lean toward a little more recline. I'd find a flat spot to check how reclined it can go with the bubble still ok in the indicator. If that's absolutely not possible, you can use the line on the car seat itself as a guide to how reclined it should be (the one for baseless use that goes parallel to the ground.)

    Anyone that makes a recommendation based on these pictures won't be doing you or your child any favors.

    It's simple: park the car on level ground and check the bubble level on the base. It's there for a reason and it works.
