Now - the seat reclines back a bit just under the outer metal frame - I presume this is the same in the sport?
I have a 19 mo, who is of average height etc but she is too tall to be in the seat in it's reclined position because her head can't pass under the metal frame. Is this right or are we missing something .
We've got a sport. The heaviest dc is supposed to go in the front/top seat for safety reasons, (i think there is a danger of it tipping over if heavy dc goes in back/lower seat).
Ds1 is currently in the second seat as it attached in the front position as ds2 is still in lying down position. Ds1 can't recline as we have the same problem as you. However ds2 will soon be sitting up and therefore in the second seat attached in the back position and ds1 will be in the normal seat. He will just have to wait if he wants to recline.
Ahh it isn't always practical to have the heavier weight in the front though. I put DS1 in the back sometimes now as he is more likely to walk most of the time, and the weight of DS2 (1yo) in the back without DS1 being in the front seat tips the buggy back.
...Saying that I usually have the pannier bag on full of washable nappies which seems to do the job of counterbalancing the weight in the back
I think the seats of the P&T are fairly 'laid back' in design compared to some other buggies, so as my DS' get bigger I'm not too worried about reclining them
