    We are expecting baby #4 in August and I just can't wrap my mind around 4 carseats in the car! I feel like I should be able to figure this out but this was a big surprise and I was loving our setup, so this really changes things. We currently have 2 RF advocates 3rd row driver and passenger side...

    Clicktight issues!

    Am I the only one who thinks the clicktight seats are more difficult to install?? I now have 2 of them and I found them to be so incredibly hard to actually CLICKTIGHT. Am I making it more difficult on myself somehow? It gets tricky for me once I try to get the slack out of the shoulder part to...

    Best option for tall 5 yr old w/ long torso

    I just moved DS harness to the top slot on his performance sport and he's got maybe 1-2in of space until his shoulders will be at least even. No clue how long it will take to get above there but looking at options since his last growth spurt put him over the previous slots. I am very...

    Quick help!! RF recline positions for Nextfit

    What number is acceptable for an 18 month old? The instruction manual only says position 1 for infant and then position 9 for FF. This is my first nextfit install so I just want to make sure I don't put it in unsafe! I know dd can sit upright at this point but the manual is unclear on which...

    we got in an accident :(

    We were driving on the highway and got rear ended pretty badly. Everyone is ok, and I'm so thankful ds wasn't with me since he is ff now. I hit my head good and have quite a bit of neck, shoulder and back pain, so I know he would have been hurting. To top it off i am just 6 weeks prego w/ #3...

    britax harness sticking

    Are there any known issues currently with Britax harnesses? DD chaperone has been fine (granted the chest clip has always been nearly impossible to slide easily) until this past week or so. Out of nowhere I went to tighten it and it didn't want to pull all the way tight, like it was stuck. I...

    alternate site for downloading crash test videos

    I know there are tons on youtube, but is there anywhere else I might be able to download a video from that would show rf vs ff crash test? I am putting it in a powerpoint presentation and will not have internet access, so a link won't work :( This was one of the main things I wanted to show!

    anyone seen this contraption before?

    I haven't been around here much lately, so this may have been discussed before and I missed it. I came across this while looking for pictures to put in my CPS presentation. I clicked on the pic because it looked like it was going to show how internal injuries occur when the chest clip is too low...

    What is a good narrow 5pt to booster option for 3 across? I am not too savvy on boosters since they are so far in our future and don't have any advice to offer! I saw a friend online about to booster their 3 year old and had to weigh in.... hopefully it seems they have taken the advice to keep...

    which seat would you use for road trip?

    DS ended up making to 4 rf in his xtsl. I had already ordered a prosport thinking he wouldn't so we have that ready to go in the car. I am a terrible judge of knowing when the seat is outgrown by height when it starts getting close. I THINK he has about 1/4in but that solely depends on if I'm...

    please tell me he's safe ff!!!

    Please tell me that the first ride ds takes as a ff is not going to involve an accident! I just have all these visions and horrible thoughts like the pic I just took of him in his new seat will be the last one, etc. I know it's crazy but I can't be the only one here who's had these thoughts...
