Thanks for all the input. This is really freakin hard! I guess we can't go wrong with 2 more of the seats we have...even if we don't like them all that much.

Can you return a carseat to Albeebaby if it doesnt work like you want?

With an angle adjuster under our radian dd can't keep her head upright when she sleeps. But legroom is awesome. Being able to flop over the sides allows for tons of growing space. We have two that were bought for DHs old car that needed three across and I like them fine but theyre not seats I would buy again. They're persnickety to install in many cars and I hate the ratchet adjuster. I don't mind their height since we have an SUV and an Impala.

I don't feel like the true fit is huge If I wasn't so neurotic about streamlined seats I would have one for dd. She is in a ra55 right now with plenty of room to grow but the legroom is atrocious for my 98% height girl. I really hope she can stay comfortably rf in it until she is 3, when I plan to give her the fr85.

I think right now we are going with 2 of what we already have. It's just too hard to decide on seats and we don't hate them...we just don't really like them that much. DH likes the My Size 70 so maybe that since we are ok with My Rides...

In that case I would prob get them and put the matching seats in each car

At least he has an interest. Dh just does what I say when it comes to seats.

He's too opinionated! He needs to back off!
And after all this we are getting True Fits! Goodness.

Re: A question from my husband

I don't have those seats and haven't seen your other threads, but I find that my Roundabout is the easiest of my seats to install. All our seats are Britax, and all install within minutes. I just got a Boulevard 70 G3 that might be easier to install, but that's simply because it already has the non-slip base (something our other Britax seats haven't had). I have only installed the Roundabout with LATCH, and have installed our Marathon with LATCH and lap/shoulder belt. All RF. FF install is even faster, though (I recently tested this out while vehicle shopping since it's only a matter of time before we need a seat to fit FF).
