While it's important to pay attention to the height requirement of Rosie's carseat, keep in mind that what matters is that her head would land squarely on carseat if it was flung back. Kids' head-to-butt vs. butt-to-feet ratios vary, so their 30" statement may be based on some other body proportion. You should still be working on getting the next one, but if her head is protected, you don't have to be in too much of a hurry. On the other hand, if her head is starting to roll off the top, you need a new one yesterday.
Congrats on all the fantastic development!
Thanks, Sue, yeah, her head was still about an inch from the top of the car seat last I checked. And we already have a bigger one for Brian's car. I've just been cherishing a few last opportunities to take the sleeping kiddo out of my car still sleeping, in the carseat, before switching to one that's a single unit instead of the carseat and base.
And of course the other decision we're wondering about is when to switch her to forward-facing...
