He likes rf and has never complained. He is in a radian xtsl as is my 17 month old DS. . Need to weigh him to make sure he is still in range for rf I guesS...

All of mine were and still are in the 98% for height and rf'ed with out any problems due to their height and their knees were never in their faces either. And, most importantly that info is false. It is much safer for them to rf than to have their legs bent, crossed, around the seat, or any other position they put them in. Broken legs is better than a broken neck.
