    The First Years Compass 540 Booster

    I currently have a Britax Frontier and Graco Nautilus and wanted a booster for our cruise and as an extra for occasional car pooling. I didn't want to deal with the fear of other people installing the seat incorrectly. Anyway, I just ordered the new 540 and found it at the lowest price at the...

    Question Are you a CPS or CSA in the Puget Sound Area with a good presentation for parents?

    I've noticed at our preschool and Kindergarten a lot of parents using no back boosters with their preschooler and Kindergarteners. I'm pretty surprised considering the amount of affordable high back boosters out there. Our school as a child advocacy group. Is there anyone out there in the WA...

    Question When using a booster, can you lock the car seat belt out to keep the child from moving around?

    This question keeps coming up with friends who have kids in boosters. My kids aren't in boosters yet, but thought it would be good to know to pass along to them. I also have their kids in my car occasionally as well. By locking out the belt I mean pulling it all the way out and putting it back...

    Question I saw Nautilus at BRU today and how do you move the straps?

    I'm looking at this seat for my husband's car. Only one child is in there at a time, my 5 year old or 3 year old. Good news is that they would be at the same strap level so my 3 year old wouldn't have the head overlap with the belt thing. What kept me from not buying it was that I couldn't...

    Question Can a Frontier or Nautilus be used in booster mode without removing the harness straps?

    The reason that I am asking this, I'm thinking of getting a Nautilus as a second seat in my husbands car to take my daughter to school. I also have a younger 3 year old and thought it would be great to get something that he could use as well, since usually there is only one of our children in...
