    Special needs van with lap belts

    I am a physical therapist for a small school for kids with special needs. They use a small bus/van to transport the students (as well as adults in their adult program.) I don't know how to post a picture, but I included a link to a similar bus below. 2 students are transported in their...

    TB from ebay?

    I fell in love with the Kaley TB only to find its been discontinued. Found it on ebay, but I'm thinking its not a good idea. This is what the listing says. "All items are overstocks and returns from a large online retailer. Some boxes may show some damage, but product is in perfect condition."...

    GN patterns, other features

    Is there a difference between the Erica and the Valerie other that just the pattern? More/less padding? I've looked and I can't find anything different. They are $40 different in price and that seems like alot for just different colors.

    Seats after crash

    So I rear-ended someone today :( No passengers in either car. My airbags deployed and I have a rash from that. I'm starting to feel sore. The other woman seemed fine and was able to drive away with surprisingly little damage. I had a Nauti installed, TB in a seat with the belt through the...

    opinions on 6.5 yo booster vs harness

    My 6yo dd has been riding in a Nauti in my car. She is in DHs car in a TB only 10 min once per week. I recently ordered a parkway SGL. She rode in it twice in my car and is now asking for it to be her everyday seat. She is small- just 40 lbs. She is responsible when riding in a booster. She...

    Booster Advice

    I am looking to buy a booster for my 6.5 yo dd. She is in a Nautilus in my car and a TB in DH's car (usually only 15 min to school once per week.) I plan on keeping her in the Nauti a while longer. But if I want to bring a friend home from school for a playdate, I need 3 across in my Santa...

    advice on top tether

    I'm installing seats for my 2 kids in the 3rd row of my sisters caravan and just discovered there's only one LATCH. I decided to put dd2 RF in EFTA, but she just fits (2 in above her head). Wondering what would be best for next time, when I assume dd2 would have to be FF. Who should have the...

    FF or RF 3yo

    I am looking for advice on FF vs. RF. I think most people will say RF, but I'm unsure of my decision, so looking for some opinions. I have 2 daughters dd1 is 5 and dd2 turned 3 in August. I changed dd2 to FF in DH's car in July when she was 30 pounds. We have an old Triumph in that car and...

    new seat for small 5yo

    Thanks in advance for reading my rambling post :o My older dd turned 5 in May. She's 35 pounds. I don't know her torso height, but she's JUST outgrowing the original Triumph. She rides in a MA in my car. She rarely rides in DHs car, but I like to have the option. So, I need 1 carseat now...

    triumph and tether question

    I have 2 original Triumphs for my daughters in DH's car. I just turned younger dd FF since she was 29.6 pounds at her recent doctors appointment. I was re-reading my manual today and noticed a part I hadn't paid attention to before (I know bad mom :o). It says if your seatbelts are forward of...

    2 car seats on plane

    We're flying to Disney with our 2 kids. We plan to bring a laptop to let them watch a movie. Will they allow 2 car seats next to each other? Thanks!

    Erf wwyd?

    I've always gotten great advice here and I'm looking for more. My 2.5 yo dd is RF in a EFTA in my car and an original Triumph in DHs car (2 door Civic). Just today I noticed she barely has 1 inch left above her head. Last I weighed her with her clothes and shoes on she was 28.5 pounds, so I...

    free care seats?

    I know of a child (through my work agency) who is in need of a carseat. Her mom cannot afford one. Are there any resources for them? They do qualify for assistance. If it comes down to it, I could buy a scenera for them. But I would like to know of any resources.
