Is there a weight limit for using LATCH on the Regent? How about in my car, a 2001 Toyota Sienna?

Thanks!

Toyota does not specify an upper weight limit for LATCH, but instead defers to the child restraint manual. In turn, the child restraint manual defers to the vehicle manual . Britax in general is 48 pounds, but I don't have the Regent manual handy and PDFs crash my computer . When in doubt, assume 40 pounds.

I just looked it up and the latest Regent manual says,

"Use vehicle belt (not LATCH connectors) for installations with children who weigh more than the vehicle LATCH anchor limit. Unless specified otherwise by the vehicle manufacturer, assume a 40 pound (18.1 kg) child is the vehicle LATCH anchor limit."

So basically, what she said.

The manual for All model numbers prior to 2/19/2008 says 48 lbs.

So our Regent (which we bought in Feb. 2007) should have 48lbs then right? Or should I go by the 40lb limit? This stuff is confusing!
