I just bought a new '04 Silverado and moved the lil' ones seat (he's
two and about 30lbs.) from the car to the extended cab and the top
rubs against the glass making all sorts of squeaky noises (not to
mention, I'm worried about the tint).
Just curious if anyone had recommendation on a good child seat (2 year
old+) that doesn't rub on the extended cab glass in the back?
you only put the seat backwards if the child is under one. I'm about
to have to move my almost 3 year old to a new seat as she's getting
too tall for the one she has now. 4 more lbs and she can go into a
booster type seat (she only weighs 36 lbs).
They say true wealth:
is to have children!
I have found, true wealth is drained by children but, I wouldn't have it any
other way. When my kids call me daddy, it makes me feel like superman!
I find that comment kind of sad. If you dont want chlldren then thats fine
with me, but for those whe wish to further the species with meaning full
results I see no problem with that. Im only 24 but have already got past
or never did most of the stupid crap most of my generation find so
appealing. I find my generation very sad, to many people making it harder
for others to have a life without privacy violations. 10 years ago drug
test were not very common but due to the generation that I am apart of now
you damb near need to take ne just to buy gas. And thats BS. If growing
up cramps your style I feel sad for ya. Its got lots more possibilities
than staying young and stupid.
Just my .02 Mat
Okay, there is no such thing as furthering the species. People are quite
simply - everywhere.
Drugs & child delinquents have nothing to do with overpopulation. They have
actually found out what causes people to get pregnant (and it doesn't
involve drugs or vandalism).
There might be people everywhere, but they don't have the advantage of
the genetics of my wife and I nor do they have the advantage of my
superior parenting skills. Therefore the world is a better place for
me having had children. And all the however many billions of people
there are in the world, think exactly the same thing so that is why we
keep doing this.
They say to have the child face the rear till they weigh 20 pounds.
The longer the better though. You won't find a rear facer that a 30
lb child will fit in. The cheap $30 model at walmart fits in my dads
extended cab and it only touches the headrest. Can you adjust the
height of the headrest to accomodate your child seat?
Unfortunately the LATCH system is in located in the middle of the bech
seat in the back, which has no headrest. :(
I wish I was in a bigger city, upin Seattle they would let you take
the car seats out to your vehicle to test them for fitting.
Now I'm in the middle of a corn-field and people look at me like I'm
crazy when I ask things like that.

Is your child small enough to need to use the Latch system? It isn't
used when you use a booster and the vehicle seat belts. I used the 5
point harness for my boys till they didn't fit in them anymore. The
vehicle seat belt holds my 4 year old fine when I lock the belt in
place so he can't get out of position.
