I just bought him a NEW Compaq, mainly because I believe it's a safer seat than the old one when forward-facing, but also because I thought it was supposed to have high rear facing markers so he could rear-face for longer. (Meanwhile, new bub due soon can have the old seat.)
However, his shoulders are up to the rear facing height markers. The seat installer told be he won't install it RF, but the manual is very unclear - it says "must be used RF until the child's shoulders reach the lower markers" but doesn't say specifically if they must forward-face after then, or if keeping them RF is an option.
I've emailed SnS but don't expect and answer until Monday at the earliest.
Has anyone previously asked this question of the manufacturer? Can I keep him RF until he hits the 12kg limit or are the height markers the absolute upper limit?
