    Just Whining...Not In Love With Monterey

    Hrmph. I want to love this booster seat. I'm trying very very hard to like it, but I just don't. It is tall enough for my son, which is awesome since I do not trust he'll sit correctly in a NBB. However, it seems no matter what I do, he's out of position somehow, he can't get it buckled...

    Coccoro Install in 2010 Ford Fusion

    Anyone have tips or tricks to get a nice tight install of this seat in this particular car? I tried both the center (which has a bump, so it wasn't level...or tight) and outboard (both belt and LAtch)...to no avail. Thanks!

    Question regarding the pricing of used seats

    On our local CL there are a couple seats I'd like to get to use as demo-only seats. I'm willing to pay a fair price, but I'm not sure what fair would be. Is there a formula you know of to decrease the value of a seat as it nears expiration date? Thanks!

    DS is getting squished in Nautilus, suggestions?

    Successful Seat Check Yesterday in Omaha

    We had our first check out of 3 here in the Omaha area yesterday at the Children's Hospital and it went really well. The weather was cold, cloudy, rainy and nasty but since we were in the parking garage it was alright. Not sure how many seats were checked yet, but there were a few times...

    Separating headrest from back support on Evenflo Big Kid booster?

    Does anyone know if (once assembled) it is possible to disassemble the Evenflo Big Kid? My problem is removing the headrest from the back support, which when you open the box, has to be "snapped" together. Thanks! It's for a return to Target, didn't work in neighbor's car. I'll take it back...

    Ugh..7 year old no longer able to use 5pt harness

    Hi All, I'm new(er) to posting, though I'm an avid lurker. I just had to come and post since I know you understand how I am feeling. My ds turned 7 last month and just this week I made the decision to remove his 5pt harness from our Nautilus seat, as he is too tall for the top straps to be...
