DD2 is almost 3 and I noticed today that her head is at the top of her recaro polaric.
Is it the same rules as with a 0 stage seat that if their head is at the top they need a bigger seat?
I already have the kiddy pro to put her in so it;s not a problem it's just a bit early as dd2 11m is to have the rf next and she has loads of room in her 0 stage seat

is it not the top of their head though if they are rear facing?

HMM I'm still no better off. I would of assumed that the rules for a rf 0stage seat would be the same for a stage 1 rf seat.
Ideally she would stay in it till christmas which is when we think dd3 will outfrow her 0stage seat. And that way we don't have to mess about taking it out and getting the ssller to refit it. I think I will give him a ring and see what he says

i e-mailed the manufacturer and it is top of ears inline with the top of the seat.
that means she has about an inch and a half growing room left
