My almost 5 year old is in a Britax Marathon foward facing and I noticed the straps are getting below her shoulder ht where they come out of the slots. I does someone remember whether I should adjust them so that they come out of the slots above her shoulders when foward facing?

I saw something on it that if child is rear facing straps should be above or below and vis-a-versa if foward facing. which is it?

For FF, the straps must be at or above the shoulder. Is she on the top straps?

If she's above the top harness position it's time for a new seat
