    WWYD - switch from Wizard to Regent or not

    OK, the big Britax sale has me really wanting to buy Laura a Madison Regent just like her sister has. It would eliminate any fighting, mostly because I had to move Heather's harness up a slot a while back and Laura can no longer ride in her sister's seat once in a while like she could when we first got the Regent last summer. Laura still fits fine in her Wizard except for her big thighs make it harder to buckle her without pinching. I was going to wait until she really outgrew the Wizard to replace it as I like the fact that it has the TSIP wings and that she can sleep in it so comfortably. On the other hand, I drive a 2005 Odyssey which has side air bags, so would the loss of TSIP really make much difference? I already know that I can install the Regent in the middle captains chairs as I already have Heather's in SBP w/recline bar, so that fact that some people can't install it well in the '05 Ody capt's chairs has no bearing. Laura is 4 1/2, 40 3/4" tall, weighs 45# and her torso is 14 3/4" long. So this whole long spiel to ask, would you move her to a Regent now while its on sale or wait?
    P.S. I was also considering the Nautilus for her, but if I can get the Regent for less than $50 more I think I would do that instead as I think it would be more comfortable her her long term as she is wider and shorter.

    I would go ahead and switch her now. It sounds like it would be comfier for her and she would enjoy having the Regent.

    I'd switch her. I'm having to sit on my credit cards not to do the same exact thing for Piper, move her from the Wizard she fits into to a Madison Regent for that price. Oh man I want to!!!! And Piper would be over the moon.

    I'm honestly going to miss my Wizard when it expires...I've had a couple friends comment enviously on the angled headrest for comfier sleeping in the car. I love it....

    My dd3 will be in the Wizard until she outgrows it or it expires...whichever comes first! If she outgrows it before it expires, one of my toher littles will use it
