    True fit & the headrest

    Another post popped a question into my head, and I thought I'd see what other's opinions are.

    The headrest on the truefit is optional rf'ing up to 22lbs, then it becomes mandatory - regardless of kiddo's height.

    Do you think it becomes mandatory at that weight because as a child gets heavier the seat is going to have more rotation, so they wanted the headrest there for if a child ramps further up the seat?

    Or maybe the headrest actually affects the downward rotation of the seat?

    Or, maybe it's their way of trying to make sure that the headrest is attached before most kids get tall enough to actually need it.

    Anyone else have any thoughts?
