Hi all,

Sorry another question from me.....

Currently have a Hi-liner (booster mode) for ~6 year old DD and Cargo Marathon (5-point harness mode) for ~3 year old DS and am seriously considering Compaq (obviously rear-facing) for new baby. Tried this combo in my car today and looks like it won't fit  sad.gif

Lady at baby shop and I then removed the Marathon (which looked like it was the problem) and replaced it with a Maxi-Cosi Goliath and (hurrah!!) the Goliath, Hi-liner and Compaq (both RF & FF) all fit - YAY!!

Anyway, so at least I have this as an option (even if it does involve purchasing two new seats instead of one  glare.gif ) but I was wondering whether there were any other super-narrow seats suitable for a 3 year old? He is very tall for his age, but on the skinny side.

Thanks very much original.gif

We use the Maxi Cosi Complete airs which are a 6mth-4yrst but my children are small and I envisage they'll stay in them until they're 7/8,  Maxi Cosi has just release a seat that is similar to the complete air but is designed to go up to 8yrs so its worth checking them out, I was told they're similar/same width as the complete airs.

Thanks guys... I think the seat you are thinking CrunchyNut of might be the MaxiCosi Goliath (which is the one I'll probably get).

Just happy I don't have to splash out for a new car  biggrin.gif
