Blvd CT - okay to lengthen harness?

We just got a new Blvd ClickTight today. The manual says that for children under 2 the harness must be in the short length.

However.... our 18 month baby is enormous. She's greater than 95th percentile for both height and weight, is almost 30 lbs, and comfortably wears size 3T clothing.

Would this be a "parental discretion" sort of call? I'm getting ready to install, and the harness length is very skimpy for a baby of this size. I'd much rather have that additional harness length available so it isn't such a pain to get her in and out. No way will I be able to get the straps tucked to the side, for example, when I'm putting her in - that requires some harness length to do.

What do ya'll think?

I think it would be fine but maybe a quick call to britax to confirm?

I'm fairly certain their rep has said it's fine. They just don't want, like, a 6-month-old to not be tight enough because the harness is too long, you know? (I might also be mis-remembering, so calling them is a good idea. Although I'd do it without hesitation as long as I could adequately tighten it.)

You really shouldn't need to. My daughter turned 3 in March and is 33 lbs. The shorter harness setting fits just fine.

I also don't loosen/tighten each time though so having extra length other than what is needed to buckle isn't an issue.

The small setting was way too small on my 30-lb 3-year-old. I mean, I could make it work, but not easily.
