    Do I need a regular seat or special needs?

    I have an about 39" 37lb 3.5yo rf in a Britax Boulevard ClickTight. She has OSA, dysphagia, hypotonia, joint laxity, wears knee & ankle braces and is currently stiil at the infant recline angle as anytime I try and move it up a notch and she falls asleep she will wake up screaming and I think it's from apnea.
    So I think I need a ff seat that reclines and has a foot rest. I saw Britax has come out with one. Are there others with a foot rest? How about special needs seats? Anyone know if medical insurance would pay for the new Britax or only those designated special needs? Any insight is appreciated!

    Re: Do I need a regular seat or special needs?

    At that size, I would look at a seat that rear-faces to 50 pounds. There are a number in the market, the Graco Extend2Fit line being quite popular. There are others you could consider too, of course!
