Thumbs up We got our Britax today & WOW is it HUUUUGE! ADDED PIC!

I had paid for a boulevard, but it was on backorder so dh said lets just go for the regent then.. so we did and it's here today! But my gosh the sucker is HUGE! The first slots are sufficient for him.. It was a cinch to get installed, that thing is rock solid! I was wanting him to RF a little longer though so I'm a little bummed about that.. he's now 28.8 lbs without clothes on.. We almost made the 30lbs goal.. guess it will have to do! He certainly has lots of room to grow!

Awesome, you got one! They are great seats, even though they are huge. I have dd and ds in them. That's the same one ds has too.

They are huge - but they are great seats. We have one for my 3 year old - the pink girly one, of course. She loves it! Especially since it sits lower on the seat than her Marathon did and she can easily get in and out of it by herself. We have gotten quite a few compliments on it when I drop her off and pick her up at preschool.

How cute!

He is tiny, he could RF for awhile still (since the new BLVDs have 35lbs RF) What did you end up doing with the BLVD?

I love the Regent for my DS he loves it too ....though my DD is still RFing and will forever (28lbs too) she tries to climb in brothers seat now and then.

(the belly pad goes between his legs, not sure if you knew that or not)

Oh I know, I really did want him to RF longer too.. And NO, I did NOT know that on the belly pad.. I haven't read through the booklet yet and I just asked dh what the heck that thing is there for! I also had one of the shoulder things turned around..

How old are your kiddos again? I haven't seen you around for a while! How have you been? Finished with school this semester? I am, thank God!!!

Anyone else have a 2yr old in a regent?

You'll want to make sure and read the whole manual. There are specifications about install for the weight of child that is using the seat.
