    Kiddos in TF

    Thought I'd post a few pics of my girls in the TF:
    DD1 4y 4m, 41", 40#s
    Marathon - slightly above second to top slot


    TrueFit - even with second slot


    DD2 almost 21 mon, 31.5", 22#s
    Marathon - even with second slots for rf'ing


    True Fit - uses bottom slots for rf'ing, fits w/o headrest heightwise, but at weight limit

    Re: Kiddos in TF

    *sniff* I'll miss you seat! I'm so excited to get the ARB version though in January!

    Can you believe the RFing room? I was amazed. It just didn't have the head support I needed RFing or FFing for my kid. The Signo is all that works

    My chunk a lunk fit height wise too for removing the headrest but was over the weight limit. I just couldn't believe the amount of room heightwise both had RFing. My older will outgrow her MA by height RFing soon, but had a good 5-6 inches in the TF.

    Re: Kiddos in TF

    I am surprised at how much bigger it is than the marathon. It is almost more comparable to the regent - they didn't look too different when I had them both in the backseat of my van! The seat part is higher on the TF, making the back nearly as tall as the regent.

    Re: Kiddos in TF

    Awww, I love the girly prints and the girls look great!! Your DD1 fits similiar to my DS3 in the TF and MA. He's 4yrs 3mths, 44 1/2 inches and was at the top slots of the MA, but just barely over the 3rd slots of the TF. I agree this seat is roomy like the Regent, but doesn't take up no more space than my Marathon did, just taller like you said.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing with it yet. I bought it intending to use it as a spare for either girl or others that ride with us on that rare occasion. So we'll see. It might become dd1's seat. I like the marathon for baby. She is skinny so it hugs her better and I like the rf tether.

    Thanks

    Now I'm thinking maybe I'll get the arb tf next year This forum is bad for my checkbook. LOL

    I still don't know what I'm going to do with this one, use full time, spare, sell and get the ARB one, who knows! I do like it more than I thought I would, though.

    Re: Kiddos in TF

    That was so interesting to see. My 14 month old son rides in the Marathon and True Fit and there isn't that much of a slot difference for him between the two seats. He is 32 inches (don't know torso length) and is above the second slots on both seats. I'll double check again when he gets home but I am almost positive that is right. I wish he had that much of a slot difference though
