my daughter has a big head -- help!


New member
Emilees head has always been big. her head is right at 92% for her age group. other than her head shes petite. smaller than average torso. so heres where my issues come to light. the Nautilus, recaro como, and true fit just dont fit her right. she only has about 2" before her head is even with the shell because her head is so big in all the above seats. but, she is on the second to last harness slot of all of the seats with tons of growth room torso wise. so is there any seats that accomodates large headed small torsoed kids? her head keeps growing so im expecting her to outgrow the seats by 5... :/

have you tried the fr85 yet? Austin has a big head, but he's got a big body to go with it so I'm probably not much help.

Not yet. im probably going to just buy one. im hesitant though because i dont know if itll fit in the third row of my trailblazer. bru/tru and bbb are 2-3 hours away... kids make life so difficult. ;)
