Re: Deal on a radian?
Thanks - that makes sense. My kids are peanuts - my 2 1/2 year old is rear facing and weighs 25 lbs. My 4 1/2 year old only weighs 37 lbs. LOL So if she was rear facing she would still be in the safe zone in our R100.

But in terms of how long the seat will last height wise, they are the same.
I do recommend the Radian to anyone looking. It allowed me to keep my car when we had 3 kids (instead of getting a bigger car to fit car seats) - and it allowed me to be able to keep my kids in car seats longer. A lot of people I know go to the booster seat at 4 and I was able to keep all three of them five point harnessed past that.
