Ive finally had to turn my DD around, she just ran out of growing room, and the top of the shell was dead on an inch over her head. She has grown 2.5" in 5 months. She is 34 months old and 39.5 inches. (The seat guide was 40" so it wasnt far off). I know Ive done my best to keep her RF this long, so why do I feel so bad about her FF?

What age would you ladies recommend as a minimum for using a nautilus type harnessed booster? Shes 28lbs and almost 40". Shes in her convertible at the minute, but DD2 will want that in about 6 months time (when shes 18 months). DD1 will be 3 years 4 months. Is that OK? The nautilus type seats just look so big!

She's well over the minimum age and weight limit for the Nautilus, she'd be fine in it.

The Nauti is great for any kiddo who's outgrown RFing (and by outgrown RFing, I mean too tall or too heavy, not "their legs touch the back seat" ).

Thanks ladies, I saw that it was OK from 22lbs/12 months onward (thats the legal FF limit here) but she looked so small in it, lots of side space around her. I was thinking about buying another convertible for DD2 but I think Ill keep her in the bucket seat as long as possible and then get a harnessed booster for DD1.
