    2009 Mazda 5

    I've got a 2013 Mazda5, and have had 3 kids rear-facing in it multiple times (I'm a nanny)! I usually prefer having two in the third row, and one in a captain's chair, but I never had multiple infants at once, so that might change things. By the time I had 3 in the car, all were over a year and...

    Calling all car seat advocates!

    I am preparing for a car seat talk that I'll be giving to a group of nannies (I'm a nanny as well as being a CPST), and I would LOVE some help testing out a quiz I'm going to give! The answer key will now be shown directly after the quiz is submitted. TIA!

    MI: small car, 3-across, under $4000

    I'm going to need to upgrade from my '97, 2-door Hyundai Accent in the near future, and I'll be needing something that is three-across friendly. Any suggestions? I know my tiny budget will mean that I'm going to be shopping for something around 10 years old. Is there any hope? :o

    "Don't leave babies in seat more than necessary" Sources?

    Does anyone have any sources on why you shouldn't leave babies in the infant seat any more than necessary when outside of a vehicle? I know there can be a risk of head deformation, and the angle can be tough for very young infants. Plus the fall risk if the seat is on a high surface, and...

    In Search Of JuJuBe Packabe, Between, or other (specific prints)

    I just started a new nannying job, and I've decided I need my own diaper bag. Plus now I have a good excuse to get a JJB. :rolleyes: I'd prefer a Packabe or a Between, but would also consider a Be Right Back or Be Hip. Prints I totally drool over are Evening Vines and JuJuBerry Squares. I...

    Toddler chest clip issues/escaping

    A friend of mine has asked me for suggestions on helping her keep her almost 2yo DS buckled up. He's FF in a Radian, and he keeps pushing down the chest clip, and wiggling an arm under the straps. Harness is correctly tightened. I'm going to suggest distractions, discipline (though at his age...

    Seattleites! Local car seat stores?

    Does anyone know of any stores in (or very near) Seattle that carry the TF? I'm helping a friend figure out which car seat she wants for her new baby, and we are planning on doing some in-store comparisons (and hopefully trying some out in her car) tomorrow. She is planning on using a...

    Tether anchor in '97 VW Golf?

    My LATCH manual is still in the mail, could someone look up tether anchor info for a '97 VW Golf? According to the vehicle manual is seems like it comes with one tether anchor, and that if you need more than one the dealer will install them. But I can't fine ANY, so maybe the manual is just...

    My brother and SIL are expecting their third in a '93 Toyota Camry. My ODN is J is 7. He's in a NB Turbo (I think). He's 57 lbs, 51.5" tall with a torso 17" (is that a crazy short torso or am I hallucinating? He's *really* thin I know... ). L is 3.5 and in an Eddie Bauer combo (I wanna say the...

    I think I'm FINALLY going to get certified!

    Over three years I've been wanting to get certified, and I think I'm finally going to do it! There's never been a class near enough to where I live, or during a time I could get off work to travel to a class! But I just found a class in Reno, NV that's during the first week of Nov. It's a pretty...

    No RF tether for infants?

    I think I read something on here a while back about how most people think a RF tether is WORSE for infants, that not having one? Something about the tether increasing neck load? :confused: I'm probably going to be helping my friends install their new Frontier (hopefully), and get their BV...

    Has anyone fit a Frontier and RF BV side by side??

    So... I know it would be different in different vehicles, but has anyone managed to fit a RF Boulevard right next to a Frontier? I'm thinking it probably wouldn't work, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I'm going to try and help a friend install her new Frontier (she hasn't been able to...
