I'm debating between it and a radian xt (unless by some miracle the new true fit is out by mid june).
I feel the same way about that stupid True Fit...I kept thinking I'd get it for River and then if it didn't work I'd send dh out to TRU to get a keyfit...but definitely not happening...I get off bedrest on Friday, which is 36 weeks, but I've told him he has to wait a week till full term, but there is no way the true fit is going to be out by May 1st, so I've given up for now.
but, yea, I realize it's only overkill for us, I have tiny kids, my 6 1/2 year old is 34lbs...she was over 5 before she weighed 30lbs...it's dh's fault, he's 5'6" 125ish lbs, give or take 10lbs depending on time of the year, how much exercise he gets in, that sort of thing, and his dad is only 5'1" and was hovering between 95 and 105lbs his whole life till he was like 40. My 20 month old is only 27" tall, he's super short. Janelle stayed in a snugride till 16 months and we moved her out cause she didn't like the angle/recline anymore, not cause she outgrew it... Travis could still fit in a snugride as well, but same thing, he hated the angle/recline of an infant carrier so we moved him out.
