newborns in radians - pics anyone?

I'm pretty sure (assuming the Radian will fit at a good 45* angle in the van) that we're going to get one for Hiccup.
DH was sure he wanted another infant seat, but we're really not liking the idea of spending at least $150 on a seat that will only last for 4-6 months (the cheaper 22lb seats up here). So we talked about a convertible, and I thought of another Radian - DH's concern is that a convertible won't fit an itty baby very well, but I'm sure I've seen pics of newborns/itties in them on here and they look like they fit very nicely with the infant inserts.

Does anyone have pics? And, if you've used one with your newborn, how did you feel baby fit in it? Did it "swallow them up"?

Re: newborns in radians - pics anyone?

DD has been in her radian since birth and we bought another for DS due in January too. I think they are great for newbies! They fit really well with the inserts that the seat comes with, and while it is a huge seat and they look completely dwarfed in it it works really well.
Here is DD in her's at 10 days old, she was about 7.5 lbs here:


a little bit closer up


and here is at around 6 weeks (between 9-10lbs):

Thanks mama! That looks like a great fit!
We'll have to play around with Levi's Radian, make sure it would work at the right angle and whatnot, before ordering/buying another one. But that it'll be fine.

Anyone else have pics?
Bonus points if you've got pics of a 45* install in a captain's chair in a grand caravan

DS was just a few weeks. Not buckled sorry. He fit perfectly. He was around 10lbs.

Re: newborns in radians - pics anyone?

I hope no one minds if I'm the voice of dissent.

I've been using Radian RXT's for a while now for #1 and #2. When #3 came around there was no way I was using a radian for her. Newbies just require too much adjusting of their straps and the radians are a major major PITA when it comes to adjusting straps. Plus I don't think I would be able to get a radian in at a good enough angle for a newbie. Those things are just too darn huge.
