Weird. .5 of an inch is minute but if it says so....

Re: mamas with britax, or other brands...

thanks for the pix mama, they are great, and ur dd is adorable!

its still a tough call, i like how the radians last longer....but i dont like how the sides/profile is so low.
i like how big n burly the britax's are, the sides...
but they also wont last as long rear facing...

My husband had to go to the hospital and run errands for his granddad, and the baby screamed for a serious amount of time. :/ I'll try tomorrow morning, if I don't forget.

One bonus to the low sides of the Radian is how easy it is to get into. Also, they have more leg room options.

Re: mamas with britax, or other brands...

babies r us, sorry If you do, I say go there and ask to try a britax in your car, they send an employee out with you and let you play...install it and plop your dd in it and see how much room she has to grow and see if the lack of legroom will bother you. Take pics and post them here too if you want! You may really lie the seat! Try others too if you are still unsure.


I have heard (don't quote me on this) that a toddler grows an average of 1 inch in the torso per yr.

OT::: Thing 1... I can't stand your new profile pic! It just makes me cringe for some reason, it looks painful

None of the SK manuals say that. I go with an inch of hard shell as I trust the Diono reps exactly as far as I can throw them and the 1.5" is supposed to give room for the padding; since I feel comfortable finding the shell I go by an inch.

BRU is babies r us
