    Pool Noodles

    I am thinking of the pool noodle to get a bit of a recline in DD seat. If I remember right it's suggested to use a solid one instead of the one with the hole correct? When using the pool noodle do I just cut it in half and place under the seat like when I used a towel?

    If you use more then one (no more then three) make sure you tape the noodles together so the noodles don't shift.
