Recline for FF. Safety issue?


New member
As much as I'd love to have DS2 all kicked back and comfortably reclined while FF thats kinda a safety issue isn't it? Like how adult passengers are suposed to have their seat fairly upright. How much recline is bad. Like the MR is really reclined FF. Or depending on your vehicle seats almost any seat would be.

How much of an issue is this? I'm really struggling with the balance between what I'm comfortable with using, what DS2 is comfortable riding in and what is safe. Obviously safety is number 1 without a doubt.

The temptation to turn him back RF is strong but he'd need to turn back FF eventually so I'd be faced with the same issues I'm struggling with then anyway.

IDK, maybe I will turn him back around. Don't know if he'll outgrow the sleeping in the car thing though, my 13 year old still sleeps on more than a 5 min ride.

ETA: I'm well aware I'm way overthinking everything.
