    Suggestions for next car seat please

    I'm having a hard time narrowing down which seat to purchase next. We have a seat expiring in September and we'll need a replacement, but I'm not sure which child to buy for. Stats are current in siggy, we drive a '13 Ody. Open to anything, budget isn't necessarily an issue. My concerns with...

    MTOs 'choosing the right carseat for your child'

    WHY is it still so out of date? Why is the mto still making mention of a 20lb minimum for forward facing? PLEASE, someone help me understand this ... I'm tired of people citing the mto as a reference and reason to turn their infant forward facing!

    In Search Of Rxt Ventura Cover

    Looking for a Ventura cover for a 2010 radian xt - I have 2 boys and my rxt seats have flora/petal/malibu covers (not that that really matters since my son has been in the flora for 2+yrs now). I'm in Ontario, but will pay shipping :)

    Which van for a 4 kid family?

    I know, I know.... a popular question! However, with 4 kids I'm noticing that van choices may be slightly different b/c our ability to be flexible with seating is less, lol! We're in the market for a new van and of course our top 4 contenders are the Odyssey, Sienna, Sedona, and Caravan. There...

    UPPA Baby Mesa coming to Canada?

    I apologize if this has been asked before, but I come up with nothing in the search. Is the Mesa coming to Canada? If so, does anyone know when possibly? Will the limits be the same? Baby #4 is due end of July and I'm in need of a new infant bucket seat. Well, I've actually been considering...

    2 RF seats in a Cobalt?

    Posting for someone else :) They have an '06 Cobalt and have a 14m RF (centre I believe). She is 16lbs and they are due with #2 in February-ish and would like to keep #1 RF (and she likely wouldn't even be close to FF minimums anyway). Both parents are tall and it's a tight squeeze. They have...

    I know my 3yo is safe FF, but pls convince me!

    I know we get a lot of these posts around here ... and I knew I would eventually post the same question one day, but I need some reassurance! My YDD just turned 3 and is RF in her XTSL (stats are in my siggy for all 3). My goal was to RF her until at least 3yo, but my ODD is in a TB and she...

    Airbag questions

    I quite frequently will bf my DS in the front seat since our backseat is full of carseat ;) However, it got me thinking: what will cause them to deploy? * Does the car have to be started? What about accessories (ie heat, lights, radio, etc) on but not started? * Does it have to be in gear (or...

    Question Can someone please tell me all about over-rotation?

    How does it happen? What happens when a seat over rotates? What are the risks of over rotation? How can it be prevented or minimized?

    Can you remove HUGS for new Britax seats?

    Title says it all - just wondering if you can remove the HUGS when RF in the new Britax convertables just as you can for the older models.

    Does the petal XTSL cover fade?

    Title says it all! I think we're all aware of the Malibu cover's fading issues (I have 2 myself) so I replaced it with a Petal cover for a discounted price after complaining to SKJP about it and I'm hoping I don't have the same issue with it fading too! I know some fading is normal, but please...

    I'm begging ...

    on hands and knees! :o Does anyone know if a Radian and a new Britax convertable puzzle well?!? Do they puzzle better/worse than the old Britax? :love: Would LOVE some pics too if anyone has 'em!
