    New Evenflo buckle has 12 steps

    I actually thought the Evenflo instructions were good. I didn't need them myself but they seem thorough, even reminding the person to check nothing is twisted at the end.

    Carpooling to a birthday party

    I feel like this is the only place I can vent about this, knowing that others will understand where I'm coming from. My 7 year old was invited to a birthday party this coming Friday. School ends at 3:30 and the party is at 4, 20-30 minute drive from the school depending on traffic. The birthday...

    Evenflo SureRide RF height limit changed from 40" to 37"

    I had a parent contact me today regarding a discrepancy between the RF height limit listed on the box and the manual of an Evenflo SureRide she bought last week. In one place on the box, it says 37" and another 40". The manual says 37". I looked up the manual online and sure enough, Evenflo...

    Booster with a locking shoulder belt guide?

    I'm looking for a booster with a shoulder belt guide that locks. I know the Rodifix fits that bill but it's not in the budget. My son has a Graco Turbo w/SS in his dad's car ('98 Monte Carlo). Recently, I noticed that he has not been riding safely due to his father's carelessness. :/ I decided...

    Harmony Folding Booster review with lots of pictures + video!

    We've had this seat for about a month now. I finally got a chance to take pictures/video of the seat in use. Overall, I like it, but no seat is perfect. My vehicle is a 2008 Mazda 5. I have not been able to test this booster in a 3 across situation. One of the reasons I got the Mazda 5 was to...

    '97 Geo Tracker with soft top -- Safest place for 8 yo?

    A friend of mine called me earlier with a question and I don't have a clear answer. Her daughter, E, will be 8 in October and rides in a Graco Turbo. E's father has a Geo Tracker (year unknown) with a soft top. The back seat has no head restraints and my friend is also concerned with the lack...

    Lands End Down Jacket OK in car seat/booster?

    This is a new item at Land's End but I'm wondering if anyone has had a chance to try it out in a car seat/booster? Sending my son to school with a thin enough jacket for his car seat was a problem last year. I would usually have him wear the fleece layer of his 3-in-1 Columbia jacket and send...

    What are your kids riding in right now?

    My son is in a Maui FR85, 2nd row passenger side of a 2008 Mazda 5. He was riding in a Maxi Cosi Rodi XR in the 3rd row, temporarily. I'm sad that this booster doesn't work in the 2nd row of the Mazda 5. I also have a Britax RA50 installed behind the driver for the rare occasion I need to...

    Differences between Snugride 35 Classic vs Click Connect?

    I've Googled to my heart's content with no luck, so I come to the experts. :) I know that the bases and how the seat connects is different, but are the height of the harness slots the same? More specifically, would a Graco Click Connect 35 accommodate a preemie well?

    Britax Diplomat rear-facing height limit?

    I've read the CR manual and the CSO spreadsheet. The CR manual says that the child's head must be 1" or more below the shell. CSO spreadsheets says 40" is the max. I know the new Britax seats go by the outer shell and the child's head must be 1" below that. Does the same pertain to the older...

    Radian RF boot pushing firmly against buckle stalk. Bad or ok?

    I'm trying to get a 3 across in my '98 Lexus es300. My 6 year old son rides in an FR85 and I just bought a Radian R120 to use with my nephew (19 months). I also carpool and the 9 year old needs to fit in a NB booster in the back (I have several options). I have the FR85 installed outboard...

    Graco Headwise 70 LATCH connectors and recline angle indicator different than Size 4 Me/My Size 70

    I went to Target a few days ago and checked out the Graco Headwise 70. At first sight, it looks very much like the Size 4 Me and My Size 70. It seems a little more padded but lacks energy absorbing foam along the sides. I know some of you wondered if there was more foam. I only found it in the...

    Stress marks on Bubble Bum belt guides?

    I just took a brand new Bubble Bum out of its packaging. It looks like there are stress marks around the holes on one belt guide but not the other. Should I be concerned or not a big deal? I tried taking a picture but wasn't terribly successful. It looks white and spider web-ish around the...
