Would you use this car seat and actually keep your child in it up to the limits of it?

I'm getting this for my 2 older girls. A lady I know thinks I'm crazy for saying I'm keeping them in the harness till they reach the limits of the seat. She just thinks I'm plain crazy for even researching car seats and their ratings to begin with. I want my kids to be the safest they can be, just in case. You never know what can happen.

Not in that seat. I would in the Britax Frontier or something similar, but not in the Radian.

I would love to use Britax, but they won't fit in our car with 3 car seats. We have a 2 door sunfire and not much will fit properly.

The Radians are just so tall and narrow. I know my son would not last for long in one because he has broad shoulders. My daughter probably would... It would depend on how your kids are shaped. Have you seen this seat in person yet?

We have the True Fit. It harnesses to 65lbs and it fits in our vehicles. My kids are still rear facing, but if there is something similar that comes out before they are at that 65lb limit that harnesses higher, we will look into that.

I have little kids with tiny bones, so I'm not worried about the fit. I've tried them out and they fit great and have room to grow.
