is my girl really tall for her age? carseat topic

we were in target yesterday and saw the marathon and roundabout in there. i have a marathon already DD is in but she wanted to sit in the "pink seat" since it had a pink cover on it. she really liked it too. i put her in the roundabout just out of curiosity and her head was above the top of the seat and it was less than an inch above her ears. the seat wasn't reclined either. she is 35" tall and 30 pounds. she will be 2 next friday. is she really big for her age or do kids usually outgrow the roundabout at that age? glad i went for the marathon as a seat for her!

My dd is turning two in two weeks, and is 35inch and 32lb. She is up in the high percentiles, but you're not alone.

ds is appx 29lbs and 36inches and he will be 2 on May 1st, so she may be alittle big, but shes not huge..kwim? at 18m ds was 90% for hight, and he hasnt grew that much more since than, so Im sure he went down on the charts...

Most kids outgrow the roundabout between 2 and 3! Some are longer in the legs than the torso and get a little more time in it, but not a lot. That's why a lot of people recommend the marathon/decathon/boulevard instead!

My son outgrew his Roundabout shortly after his second birthday. I was bummed I got that instead of the MA! He's in a Radian now because although the slots are the same height from the bottom as the marathon, kids tend to be able to use it for longer.

Holy cow. I must have a little shrimpy girl! She's 4 1/2 and she's about 36 lbs. and about 37" tall. She outgrew the marathon about 2 months before she made 4! lol

I've seen 7 year olds in a marathon who are alot bigger than your dd and they haven't outgrown them yet. My dd is taller than yours and is far from outgrowing her marathon. I know it depends on what car you have the seat installed in because it will make the seat fit differently. But i can't imagine your dd outgrowing the marathon already. Do you have any pics?? Just trying to help.
