Need help adjusting the recline of your rear facing car seat? Some seats allow the use of a pool noodle or tightly rolled towel in the seat bight to achieve proper recline of the seat, here’s how it should look. We suggest cutting the noodle into three 11″ pieces, so they will fit in between the LATCH anchors.

Remember to always follow the instruction manual for your car seat to be sure your seat allows for this method and to determine the acceptable angle range for your child’s car seat.
