Re: I just learned we shouldn't be using LATCH any more

Definitely possible! DH and I had to use belt installs with our first vehicles (no LATCH in them) and got used to getting a good, tight install with them. When we were able to, we played with the same seats using LATCH, and neither of us felt comfortable with the installs we got with it.

I have a 2003 Pilot and I can get rock solid installs FF with the seat belt no problem! I wouldn't stress over it at all

Yes to this. After we got the seat belt install perfected, we realized how much more snug we could get the seat installed and LATCH seemed a little scary. We can get both seats installed with zero movement with seat belts.
