Graco MyRide 65 question

I have a question I can't seem to find an answer to, even in the manual.


When can I take the leg surrounds out? I assume they are for newborns only but I am not sure. DD is 3 days shy of 4 months old and a little over 13 pounds.

Also, the head surround only gets taken out when you move them forward facing, right?

Re: Graco MyRide 65 question

Got your exact model's manual online...
Body Support (leg surrounds) - use with bottom 2 sets of harness slots only
Head Support (head surround) - not to be used with kids over 40lbs, use with bottom 2 slots only
Harness Strap Covers - make sure they don't interfere with chest clip placement, only use when rear facing

I believe they are not required for use though. So you can take them out if you want.

So odd. Why would you only use harness strap covers rf and not ff?

Mine didn't come with harness strap covers. Weird.

The harness covers are not to be used by children over 40 lbs, either forward facing or rear facing.

It only rf's to 40lbs, so saying they can't be used forward facing is enough.

Not really because some children will outgrow the height before reaching the 40 pound rear facing weight limit so they would need to be turned forward facing and could still use the harness covers.

The manual says they're only to be used while rf, not ff at all.
