  • For my son, I had a special U shaped pillow that slid in under his neck to prevent that from happening because his seat caused that to happen and I couldn't always sit and hold his head for him.

  • Its best not to use any products that didn't come with your seat because they were not crash tested with it and may not be safe. Is it possible you simply have the seat to upright?

  • Actually, most of the bases come with a way to adjust them. Usually there is a dial you can turn and a "foot" will raise or lower.
