Christopher rear faced in his Graco My Ride 65 until 3yrs and then we bought him the Graco Size-4-Me 70 to KEEP him rear facing longer. He's a smaller 3yr old at just 28 pounds so he'll be rear facing for quite a while longer. Our GOAL is 4yrs...maybe longer.



3yrs in his Size-4-Me 70:

Has she outgrown the limits?

No way. The seat limits are up to like 70 lbs, or 40 lbs for rear facing. The problem is our car. Her legs are smushed and she looks like a frog. The car seat itself is supposed to last forever though .

That's ok. She'll learn to cross her legs or dangle them over the side. Ffing legs are so much more uncomfortable. My dd cries cause her legs always fall asleep. Kids really do prefer to cross their legs. She sometimes does it ffing or she still puts tem on the seat or the center console. But it's normal for them to have frog legs haha. If you have a pic I might be able to help suggest something or tell you if it looks normal.

Maddy puts her legs on either side or she lays them high against the back seat making almost a V with her body.
