Would you be ok turning a 3.5yo FF?

I hadn't thought about not being able to kick in the head as a benefit. I separated my oldest and youngest in part because the youngest kept kicking him.

We are doing a ff radian now as well and I think the youngest really thinks he's a big kid now. He calls it his booster seat. He has yet to fall asleep in it but he looks pretty darn comfy.

I have a sedan, with neither kid sitting in the middle and dd could still kick ds in the head!!

She calls it a booster as well :) I have moved her to ds's old original Frontier, which she loves & looks super comfy and tiny in lol

Given your particular circumstances, I would turn her. If it were my 3.5 year old who just wanted to do what his older sibling was doing and giving me heck for it (as he does with most everything, all day long), I'd tell him suck it up buttercup and push through until 4. I actually did this for the first half of this year. I'm also very stubborn though. :D

Just thought I would update, I turned dd ff, she lasted a week, turns out she gets car sick...who knew lol

So she is rf again, happily. I did give her the option of staying ff but she feels nauseous a lot of the time anyway so she wasn't keen :) thankfully I have a Two way elite to use when she outgrows her Multi Tech & Radian (which won't be too far away)
