This is my 13 month old in her carseat. 

I lost the manual to her car seat and so i'm hoping someone on here can just tell me...

Are the straps to be below her shoulders or above her shoulders?

Right now, there just below her shoulders, but the next spot up seems way to high.

Shes 13 months and 30 pounds. Forwaring facing

I know in the first pic it looks above but she the straps weren't tightened yet.

the second pic is after the straps were tightened.


I would really rather not get the whole rear facing is 500x more safe then FF.

I make my parent choices, you make yours (: 

Ty :)

Since the mt dew seems to be the most importatn part of this post..

Since shes hiding the can top here...

I found a pic where you can clearly see its CLOSED Lol.

Wow, i figured i'd get told how horrible i was for FF, not letting her play with a mt dew can.

First pic straps look good, maybe a little tiny bit loose but hard to tell.

They're always supposed to come from behind/below the shoulders. It looks ok to me the way you have it

Edit: I didn't realize you were ff. I think it's different for that...

I think for forward facing the straps are supposed to be either at shoulder level or above. For rear facing it's at shoulder level or below.

Also I think if you moved the straps up they would be too high so I'd stick With the way they are till she grows an inch or so

I really hope nobody here is dumb enough to think i'd give a 13 month old an open can of dew.
