Hi Mamas! My youngest is rearfacing in a true fit, and we are wondering if there is a way to sit him upright more than he is right now? He is 27 months and is starting to get really sad that he can't see out the windows, especially when everyone can!

 

 

Last night we went into town and on the way we saw buffalo, a bunch of deer, and a moose. I know he would be so much happier if he could experience that too!

When installing, push down on the seat where his feet go while tightening and it should sit more upright.  It can be as upright as 35 degrees.


Happily married to my dh, mama to ds1 (01/2005), ds2 (07/2007)  and dd (07/2009).

The seat also has 3 incline levels. You might want to adjust there if you haven't already. You need to uninstall the seat to do this

Darn it, I was hoping to not have to, oh well. Thanks so much! He's going to be a happy camper now thumb.gif

Ok, I just spent the last half hour in my car reading the manual, and I can't find anything about incline levels. All I found was about the recline foot that you change for forward facing. So I am still confused...

I haven't looked at the base since I first got it a year ago, but from memory it is numbered 1-3 and is in the front.

I need to adjust mine as dd is still on the most infant incline. Also have no desire to uninstall it!

I have the regular TrueFit and it only has two recline modes - RF and FF.  I wonder if the incline levels are for the TFP?  For the regular TrueFit, I can usually get it pretty close to 35 degrees just by pulling it out from the seat a touch and pressing down where the child's fee would go while tightening the belt.  With the foot in RF mode, of course.

Yep, we have the regular truefit...that explains it! I'll try this method. I was doing some searches online last night, and the "not being able to see out the window" complaint came up quite a bit, so I guess it's not just me. orngtongue.gif
