Quoting Buster's Momma =):
Are any of you experienced w/ the 1st years tru - fit car seat ?
I just got this one and installed it for my daughter who is still rear facing and I intend on keep that way till 35 lbs .She is a long lil' girl though , and I realized that the slots on the side where you adjust the height of the straps are labeled "rear facing " and" forward facing" for the higher ones . She is on the last one labeled "rear facing " and could easily go up the next level . Is there any reason why it would be unsafe for me to put the straps up in the forward facing position or is the labeling just a suggestion ?
Adding a link to a video that explains/shows why aftermarket products like head huggers and the Mighty Tite are dangerous:
I have another question. We keep hearing Britax is THE best car seat to use for our little ones? Is that true? We are buying a convertible seat this weekend for our daughter, and we were going to get another Graco (that's what her infant seat was) but now we're thinking of spending A LOT more on Britax, because we're afraid the Graco isn't as safe. Is that true?
THANK YOU for all the information you have included in your post.
