DD is now FF but when we turned her she was
30 months, 26 lbs and about 35" tall
5 months, 16.5 lbs and 26" tall

W (26) and C (27) parenting G (11/06 ) and D (2/09 ) plus a new one (3/11)
Sometimes the greener grass is actually AstroTurf, a false promise and nothing more.

DD1 is my only one still rear-facing. She's 2 1/2, but I honestly don't know her height and weight. She's in 2T clothes, though. I would hazard about 30 pounds.

Medicmama, where is your child's head in relation to the top of the shell in the ComfortSport? Many children outgrow that seat by height long before they reach 30#. (A rear-facing seat is outgrown by height when there is less than 1" of hard plastic shell (not poofy cover) above the child's head.)

I just turned my son back RF a couple of weeks ago, now that we found out his seat RFs to 40 pounds. He's 3 years 1 month old, about 38 inches tall (mostly torso), and 35 pounds. He still has about 3+ inches of shell above his head in the Radian XT.

My dd is 28 months, roughly 25 pounds, I have no idea how tall she is but she is very short for her age, and she RF's in a Britax Roundabout. We're going to buy her a Marathon soon because I'm pg and that way she can RF longer and the new baby can use the Roundabout.

Wife to dh and mommy to dd1 (3/07), ds (1/10), and dd2 (any day now)!

she is about 1 1/2 away from the shell. I really do need to get a new seat for her. I bought the comfort sport as a between seat (I needed it in a pinch) it's about a year old.

I can't decide between a true fit,my ride,or wait a few weeks and get a britax blvd. any sugestions?

14 months now and still RF comfortably. Not sure on height and weight now, but he was 25.6 lbs and 31 1/4" at 12 month WBV. We have the Britax Marathon, which goes to 35 pounds. I hope he doesn't hit the weight max for a long time b/c we want to keep him RF for as long as possible

DD is 35 months, 38 inches tall, and 33lbs - she just did one of those crazy fast over night growth spurts. She's RF in a Boulevard. I think we'll be buying a Safety First Complete Air within the month unless some issues come out soon making me second guess the seat as it's so new on the market.
