First off, the seat is used as a rear facing seat when your child weighs between 5 and 40 pounds, and is no taller than 49 inches. The NHTSA recommends children stay rear facing as long as possible, or at least until they are 2 or 3 years old. For the average child, they will remain within this height and weight range until they are at least 3 years old, making this a great car seat that allows you to keep your child rear facing for as long as possible.
Once they outgrow the rear facing limits, the seat is used front facing, and can be used when your child weighs between 20 and 65 pounds, and is no taller than 49 inches. Notice that the height requirement is not increased, so if your child grows taller than 49 inches, you cannot use this seat, even front facing. The weight maximum is 65 pounds, which is really good for a car seat. Your child should definitely be able to use this Britax convertible car seat for several years.
This seat comes with plenty of adjustable elements in order to ensure your child is always positioned properly and is comfortable. In particular, there is a 14-position adjustable harness and 7-position recline on this model. As your child grows, you can be sure their harness is still fitting securely and in the proper position, and that the seat is positioned properly in your car and so that your child is comfortable. Additionally, no rethreading is required to change the position of the seat or harness, making it easier than ever to adjust this model.
