True Fit Premier help please! *pic*

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

 

Hi! I have an 18 lb. 7.5 month old DD. She is not liking being so reclined in her infant seat anymore so I am looking for the perfect convertible. I need one for my mom's car (Nissan Murano) and one for my husband's Ford F150 truck. After doing some research I decided to try the True Fit Premier. It came in today and I installed it in my mom's car. I have it in the middle with the seatbelt. My first question is do I have the angle right? Does this look like 35 degrees? It still seems pretty reclined to me. I guess I was just expecting a convertible to be more upright.

My next question is will this carseat even fit in the Murano once I put the headrest on? Will the carseat go more upright then or will it always be at a 35 degree angle when RF?
 
Is this a good carseat for my husband's truck. DD seemed comfy in it today. I can't decide if I should order another TFP for him or try something else.  Or maybe use the TFP for my husband's truck and get something else for the Murano? What I loved about this one was the high shell and high weight limit for extended RF and FF. I would like to keep her RF until 4 if possible! Any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks for any and all help with this!

My tfp is much more upright in my Honda civic, but I guess each car can give a different angle.

As far as lasting till 4yr. I would think that might be pushing the 35lb rf limit. I have a large kid and hoping to get to 3 rf, knowing 4will be impossible.

I went with the seat as I couldn't get a newborn recline with a radian, but since you are past that, or at,east very close, you might try a radian

You can definitely go more upright with that. Try pushing near wear the baby's feet would be while you're tightening the belt.

 

I have two lightweight kids and my 4 year old definitely still fits RF, with room to spare. And has a ton of room FF. It's a really nice tall seat and your baby's weight gain will slow once she starts moving.

How far out underneath that seat is the vehicle seat extending? Can you indicate with a mark on the picture?

Let me check and I will let you know! Does it look like it might not be enough?

It's hard to tell from the picture because I can't see the actual seat edge, but if it ends where I'm roughly guesstimating, the seat will have to be moved :-)

I just adjusted it this morning and got a closer, much better fit. i didn't realize I had the recline foot down which was preventing me from getting a good angle and from getting closer to the back seat. Here is a pic of where the vehicle seat ends. Is this enough room?
