    Radian r120, r100 or another rxt?

    I need to get another Radian and I was wondering if I should get another rxt (I hate the head wings always sliding down on my 6 yr old) or get a r120 or r100 instead. It will be for my 6,3 or 18m old. Not sure yet. Right now my 6 yr old is using the rxt but I might switch him to a harmony...

    Is RF safer when in a crash from the back?

    I have always pushed to RF our kids until seat limits and did successfully with my first 2 kids. Ds RF until 3.5 and 35lbs and dd 2.5 and 35lbs. I didn't know of any higher weight limit seats back then. Dd#3 came along and dh insisted on switching her seat ff at 2 and only 25ish lbs. She is...

    Anything like the Britax Frontier but more narrow?

I really love...
