So seems babies outgrow the classics really soon rfing! And Kristen, I am surprised she fit at all in the ma classic! We tried dd in one when she was about 11 months, 13lbs and she didn't fit quite yet. The straps were just above her shoulders still.

My DD wouldn't have fit in the classic at 8 months, no way Jose! But the new generation seats are much better for smaller kiddos.

I think a Marathon would fit most kids rear facing to at least 3 if not longer. My DS is turning 3 in a couple months and you can see he has a few inches above his head in the MA70!

Oh yeah! Definitely that one was way shorter than the others. I used to have 2 and I loved them but they sure didn't last long.

Here is my DD (front) in a RA55 and her cousin (back) in our BV70. They were both 16 months old, 23ish lbs, 31"


And this is how they roll

Which one did you like better? (the BV70 or the RA55)
I am trying to devide between the two

This my little B in her RA55 last month when we switched to FF. She was about 31" tall, 22.5#, & 20 months. She has more slots to grow into for shoulder height.

Have you had that seat long? That is the print I like if we go with the RA55. But DH thinks it would get grungy looking fast. DD is in a keyfit right now and where her head is on the headrest thing it is all grungy. I wash it and it is still grungy just from sweat and such.
