After the discussion on carseats I decided to recheck our seat's requirements. I've had Abi in a rearfacing convertible carseat for most of her life. I had it turned front facing for a couple months but then read about keeping it rear facing for as long as possibles so turned it back around. Our convertible carseat goes to 30 pounds rearfacing and 40 pounds front facing so I thought we were good to go for several more months. Abi's only 25 pounds at 24 mos. old.
Well . . . I read the back of the carseat and it said up to 40 pounds OR 40 inches, whichever comes first. She's 43.5 inches! Oops! Her head is still about an inch below the back of the seat so I just assumed she was good to go. So today I retired the carseat for baby #2 and got out the 5 pt. harness booster seat (20-80 pounds).
Just wanted to remind you to check both weight and height on your current carseats.
