Re: Bigger kids in harnessed seats..

The most recent pic I have is 6 months old and the wrong car seat. Here's a pic from that warm spell we had last march - DD1 would have been 4.5, ~43" and about ~43lbs and she's FF harnessed in her True Fit.



She's a little bigger than that, will be 5 next month and currently rides in a Nautilus. If she continues to mellow out as she has been I'll start booster training her in the spring. She's a pretty laid back kid.

Not sure. Mine is Envy color, so it's 2 tone, and it looks like you have the solid black one. Could that be it? Or, do you maybe have the YoungSport?

My DS will be 4 next month and I'm sure we'll harness till at least 6 or 7. He is in a prosport, 39 pounds, 41.5 inches.

Re: Bigger kids in harnessed seats..

I think the difference may just be the color of the seats. Mines a regular pro sport.

Re: Bigger kids in harnessed seats..

my 4 1/2 year old and my 6 1/2 old ds are both harnessed in their graco nautilus seats and love them, my oldest has been made fun of, but DH explained that the 5 point harness is like what race car drivers wear, now he does not mind and tells everyone

We just recently flipped my 40lb 6yr old ff in her marathon70, now I'm wishing I took a last picture of her sitting backwards (quite comfortably).
