    My son grew so tall so quickly (6ft women in my family in addition to 6ft8 men) and we couldn’t find a seat that could accommodate the legs! Having a kid with their legs folded up for hours at a time was not my idea of comfort either because then their legs fell asleep and they couldn’t walk. I’m impressed with legroom option but could you ask one of your friends with an older child to ‘test’?

    Wow. I didn’t pay any attention to the seat. I was too busy looking at those beautiful blue eyes and chubby cheeks. ;)

    Denise – Here’s a link to a review that has a photo of a toddler who is just over the maximum height (he put her in it for demonstration purposes only): http://carseatblog.com/18729/graco-snugride-40-click-connect-video-review/. Hope that helps!

    Such a sweet baby and cool car seat!!

    @Denise My daughter rearfaced in her car seats until she was 3 1/2 (age two is the recommended minimum…if they fit in a seat rearfacing longer, they should continue to do so until they outgrow their seats) and she’s all legs. Kids are much more flexible than adults so sitting with their legs crossed, etc in a car seat isn’t uncomfortable to them. In fact, having their legs dangle from a forward facing seat tends to be more uncomfortable. Some seats offer much more leg room than others so it doesn’t hurt to try a few out at a place like Toys R Us where they let you try them out in your car.

    You’ve sold me and I’m not a mom or pregnant! Ha. but I was my niece’s nanny when she was an infant, and I pick up a 1.5 year old a couple times a week from day care in his infant car seat. He is small for his age but quickly running out of leg room!

    That looks like a nice seat but my concern is actually how tall will it allow the child to get and still fit them? The harness heights are actually one of the important things to keep in mind and not just the weight limits on seats when considering extended rear facing. My kids outgrow rear facing by height before they ever outgrow it by weight. I also don’t find a practical need for a carrier type seat that far into rear facing. And in four kids none of them have ever complained about crossing their legs or bending their knees or any such thing in the back and my 3rd child rf’d to three and my daughter is well on her way to that point too.

    Samantha – I think the maximum height for the seat is somewhere close to 35″. My three year old is the same as it sounds like your kids have been, too tall before they’re over the maximum weight. So like any carseat, they’d need to move onto a different seat at that point. I think the convenience is being able to use the same seat from birth to age 2, even though you wouldn’t be carrying them around in it anymore by that point – kind of funny to imagine though, hehe!
