I bought this seat because I was a new foster parent looking for a seat that would fit any size child with top-of-the-line safety features. While the seat is bulky, it is made of great, quality materials and soft, comfortable fabric. We started this seat rear facing a 6-pound newborn and the fit was great. He had a good recline and the infant inserts gave him so much cushion. Our next placement was a 14-month-old that rear faced and also fit great. Now, however, we have 23-month and 34-month-old toddlers, and they BOTH have outgrown the rear facing harness heights. At not even two years old, this tall, skinny little girl does not have the 1” clearance below the headrest that is required. Same thing with her not even three-year-old brother. This seat is rated for rear facing up to 50 pounds, which was a huge selling point for us. However, at 23 lbs and 34 lbs, my two toddlers don’t fit. Luckily, I have Graco’s in my husbands car that I can switch to so I can continue to rear face both toddlers in our daily driver. Unfortunately though, our not even three-year-old will have to forward face in the Cybex when in my husband's car. If I could go back, I would have given up the added features Cybex offered and stuck with Graco products from the beginning.
