stupid carseat q

well.... it may not be completely stupid, but i should probably know this.

DD is in a Graco snugride, it goes to 26', she is 24.5' ! Here is my question... is she too big for it if her head isnt to the top ??? She has several inches left to go before her head is even close, its just her legs that are long and to the end of the seat.

Re: stupid carseat q

As long as there is 1 inch of plastic shell (not the fabric) above her head you are ok as long as she is under the weight limit. Some kids are all leg and some are all torso.

I have a snugride too but ours says 22# max weight. Good to know about the height though, DD is so tall she'll outgrow it in height before weight.

yes, an inch of plastic above the top of the head. Bent legs are NOT an issue at all. The height thing- they have to put one there by law, but 26" TOTALLY depends on the build of the child. Weight limits are non-negotiable though.
You may be able to go to your health dept for a free convert. seat, typically those give you an extra year rear facing
