    Wow, I really want the Nautilus now!

    We went to Walmart today and were browsing the baby section.
    I was not expecting to see the Nautilus there because it's a store that has never had it. They didn't have any for sale, but they had one on display and it was in the tallest position. I've seen one in person before but it was in the lowest position and it was bolted to the high shelf so I couldn't figure out how to raise it to see how much room dd has before outgrowing the harness.

    So anyway, I was so excited to see it already in the tallest position.
    I sat dd in it and she has SOOO much room! More than the Radian it looks like!
    Do they have more room around the crotch when the padding is removed?
    I didn't want to mess with the seat, but it seemed a little tight there.
    I've seen other post though saying someone's 9 yr old ds fits comfortably with the crotch strap and does not complain, so maybe it's nothing to worry about! I can't wait to see the Galaxy in real life so I can decide which one I want! It better fit in my car where I want it to or I'll be so sad!

    I can't look for sure (hubby's gone with it), but I think there are two crotch strap positions.

    There are 2 crotch positions. Though my almost 4yr old has VERY little room there. I was very dissapointed and still am, he has very little time until he is sitting on the buckle Well he already is, about less than 1/2 and inch of room there.
