My question is, wouldn't this get uncomfortable, particularly during long car rides?
Some car seats have more leg room rear-facing than others. The britax convertibles have very little room. The myride has tons of room. Even in a britax, the kids just cross them, fling them over the sides, or put them on the seat back.
This is my 4 1/2 year old, 42", and 40 lb DS in the MyRide installed on the babies'r'us test bench. He's a bit too big to ride in it (head is too close to the top and he's at the weight limit) but he has plenty of room for his legs.http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q...ats/myride.jpg
My son is forward facing now and he still crosses his legs because if they hang in front of him too long, they fall asleep. So I think rf'ing is probably more comfortable for their legs.
