I was shocked by the discovery today that my beloved Britax Marathon has a 32" (81.3 cm) height limit for RF. My 14 month old little guy is 80 cm tall right now, and growing like a week. I may only have another month or 2 before he outgrows it.
I guess I'm shocked because I only had to move the shoulder straps up today, and he has waaaaay more than an inch before his head reaches the top of the shell. He has long legs. I had planned to keep him rear-facing until he is at least 3 years old. (It tops out at 30 lbs weight RF too).
The Marathon was a gift by a friend who also has one. She researched it for safety (but has a very petite baby and I guess she thought I would too!)
So here is my question. What are my options for good rear-facing car seats (Canadian) that will last my tall son (he's about 11 kg or 25 lbs too) until he's at least 3 years old? It kills me that my friend spent $300 on something that will probably only last 15-18 months. I don't want to repeat that mistake!
Of course I would love to find a seat that I can turn to forward facing once he is old enough and that would last him FF until it expires.
Please tell me your ideas/thoughts! Thanks!
