    If you are looking for a restraint that rear faces for the longest amount of time, it would be our Cosi Compact (aka Neon) and Kompressor range."

    Bit of a bugger but you get that. No to convince DH we need a 0-4 not 0-8 as he liked the idea of the 0-8.
    Just looking at the website and it says that the seat must be turned when the child reaches the height markers - suggests a large 6 month old or an average 30 month old. The Kompressor also works on height markers but it seems that it would rearface longer - suggests a large 12 month old or average 30 month old. I can't actually find measurements for distance from seat to height marker though.

    Just saw what I was looking for. The 0-8 seats are 32cm from seat to shoulder height marker and the Kompressor is 34 cm.

    The Kompressor has a narrower base than the CC/Neon. That and the materials used in the padding are the only difference.

    There are plenty of people out there with 3 year olds still under the line & resurfacing in these seats so you'll get plenty of use out of it.

    I'd definitely suggest a 0-4 seat though, as new and better designs are constantly being released and by the time your bubba outgrows it there maybe something even better available in the larger seats. The companies are always trying to make convertible boosters taller and slimmer to further utilise the concept of extended harnessing.

    Good luck!

    Fantastic, I might look at the kompressor then as we are thinking of having 3 so width will be an important factor.

    Good points all about just getting a 0-4, thanks
