Re: We got our Britax today & WOW is it HUUUUGE!

I was going to say the same thing. Are you using latch to install the seat? If not you need to use the long belt path method for your ds's size. My dds are 4 & 6 but only weigh 31 & 33 lbs and they are both in regents. They are huge but soo comfy for older kids.

My LO turned 2 a few weeks ago, and he's been in a Regent for 3 months. He was too big to rear-face at 19 months. I can't believe how MASSIVE my kid must be! He is on the 2nd slot up, about to need to move to the 3rd. I was just thinking tonight that I need to move them up this week! AH!

Wow your ds must be really tall. My 6 & 4 year old are still on the second slots. How much does he weigh?

I got the Sahara pattern.. I added a new pic in my first post.. it's raining outside so a few speckles are on it..
I was really unsure about this seat but I think it's growing on me now.. it's so soft!

I cannot tell but did you do the Long Belt Path? I see you are using LATCH but just making sure you used the Long Belt Path to install and not the Short Belt Path (SBP is how you install most carseats, LBP is different)

Can those of you with regents share your childs stats in them? Andrew turned 2 the end of March.. he is 28.8 lbs nakey, 30lbs fully clothed. And I think he's right about 35 inches now.. he doesn't like to be measured and wiggles so he may be slightly shorter than that.

Yes, I did use the LBP.. it shows it on the side of the seat to do the LBP for children 22-40lbs and the SBP for 40-80lbs.. If I wasn't watching every detail I could have installed it wrong so easily.. I even caught that I am to clip the Latches over the outside of the bar, it's supposed to be on the inside with the SBP.. I had one inside and one outside at first..

I swear! What a friggen giant I have!!! I'm not sure on his weight, honestly. The last time I weighed him he was 37-38ish IIRC. I need to get the scale out tonight to check. He is tall, but I didn't think he was THAT tall......


Here he is though, 4 months ago at the 2nd slot up. It's getting pretty close now to being AT his shoulders. Maybe another week or so....
