    Angle adjuster did the trick and i was able to get it nicely installed with the feet properly wedged into the seat and it’s not going anywhere.

    Lots of room up front, even for me at 6’. My stubby wife is swimming in space up there.
    That looks way easier to get a kid in and out of than the Clek Foonf we got. I didn't want to deal with the extreme lean angle of the Diono and have no leg room in the front. Turns out we had no leg room with the Clek anyway. And as soon as my wife found out that it's safer to mount the seat in the middle instead of the sides, my next honey do task was to move the car seat. Now there is no issue with leg room.

    With my hindsight I would have got the Diono. Kids always fall asleep in the car, and without the lean angle of the Diono their head just falls forward which we were not too keen about. I figure the Diono would keep his head naturally leaning back in a proper posture position, and not leaving chest buckle marks all over his chin.

    6 more months till we can turn him forward facing can't come soon enough. He hates facing rear and essentially feeling like he is back there alone and not able to be involved with us.

    Our kids always did well with a mirror on the headrest to look forward. They learn how to make eye contact with it pretty much instantly.

    99% sure mounting your car seat in the middle isn’t safer. @Misterman did your wife research that on Facebook mom groups?

    Is this like those little chunks of foam you attach to the side of the seat every manufacturer has that they call “side impact protection” for another $100?

    It sounds like that would be safer, but I've never thought about it before. Is it a known thing that is not?

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18450877/

    TL;DR "Children seated in the center rear have a 43% lower risk of injury compared with children in a rear outboard position."

    Old study from over a decade ago, but probably still true.

    Interesting. I recall reading somewhere that was disproven, but I could be mistaken and definitely can't be bothered to look it up again.

    I wonder why most cars don't have any isofix attachments in the center, if that's the case.

    No. It's basically confirmed by everything I quickly googled on it.

    What kind of poo receptacles are yall using?

    Diaper genie bags are freaking $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Getting tired of paying for that. Anything else similar that does NOT smell but takes regular bags (or maybe small bin sized garbage bags).

    Must NOT smell.

    Or is Diaper Genie the best and I must take HELOC to pay for the bags?

    We had something from Arm and Hammer which was less expensive but it got discontinued so we had to move to diaper genie. The best prices I have found for diaper genie inserts are on subscribe and save from Amazon, it's like finding them on-sale anywhere else. It does an impressive job of managing the smell, and you don't need to replace the little filter at the top I didn't find that did anything.

    Just get the Diaper Genie bags from Costco.

    We had one for kids 1-3 and my wife thought it would be a good idea to try and save money and replaced it with an Ubbi that takes regular bags... It sucked, leaked stench, was easily overloaded so diapers spilled into the pale (the Genie bags aren't a predetermined size, so you can cram them as full as you want)...

    When it comes to baby gear, there are some things that are the gold standard for a reason and the Diaper Genie is one of those items.
