    Re: How to tell if your RF seat is outgrown by height

    I found the post above (great thread!) when trying to be sure I was measuring head height correctly. I was using the right idea, but still have a question. Where do I draw the imaginary line at the top of the seat? At the top of the cover as it is when she is in it? Or press down the top of the cover and measure only to the top of the hard part of the shell? Thanks!

    You would need to measure using the top of the hard plastic shell, and not the top of the padded cover.

    Thanks! Sorry to ask something that had just been asked. When I read the top post about measuring, the rest of the thread was not showing. It just said single post or something like that and only had the original. Now I can see the whole thread and realize how silly that looked to ask the exact same question back to back! Sorry!
