    Hyundai Elantra Back Seat

    Does anyone know if the 05 and 09 MY's of the Hyundai Elantra have the same back seat? I'm thinking about getting Nicholas a Radian for the Elantra. (He asked to go back RF and we only have 1 convertible.) We have the 09 Elantra and I saw that someone was successful with the 05. Thanks! Susan

    Question Evenflo Momentum

    Has anyone used one? In what vehicle? I think I'm down to that or another MyRide to replace our crashed MyRide. It'll need to go into the center of the Hyundai Elantra. Susan

    Looking For A New Convertible

    My son and I were in a crash this morning, we're fine. I'm still a little shaken and am/will be sore, but other than that good. He was in his MyRide and I'll need to replace that now. We were in a 2009 Hyundai Elantra. I want to keep him RF. He's almost 32lbs and in a 3T shirt. 36" tall...

    Well, we're now a 1 carseat family.

    Only for a short time hopefully. Nicholas and I were on the way to work/daycare this morning(I work in a child care center and he goes there too) and I somehow missed the curve in our road...a road I drive on at least twice a day! I went off road, took out a mailbox(shattering our...

    What to do???

    Nicholas is 2 yrs, 8 months. I had him at the docs yesterday and he weighed in at 31.2 lbs--shirt, shorts, socks, shoes and slightly wet diaper. He's got room to grow height wise in both of his seats(MR, TFP), more in the TFP. At 1 he was 19-20 lbs. At 2, he was 24lbs...and has been packing...

    Question Boosters with Lock-Offs

    What boosters have shoulder belt lock offs? I've got a mom interested in them, but I haven't kept as up to date on boosters. Besides...with so many new seats out and new manufacturers...it's almost impossible to be aware of every seat and each of it's details. Thanks Susan

    Ok...so here's the background: DN has epilepsy(since infancy) and is on the autism spectrum. She turned 6 in Nov, with little language. She has low tone in her trunk. She has just moved up to the top slots of her GN, so SIL is beginning the hunt for a SN seat for her. She needs a seat that...

    Baby Trend Flex Loc in an F-150

    I'm helping a co-worker who's due in about a month. New to her seat and she drives an F-150 with a rear bench, but not 4 doors. I haven't gotten in the truck to know what I'm dealing with room wise, but can tell it's not much. I'm unsure on the yr as well. I'd venture to say it'll have LATCH...

    Which Seat?

    I've decided that we're getting a new seat. I'm tired of moving a convertible nearly daily. Right now I'm thinking I'll put the Scenera in the DCP's Expidition with LATCH. The TFP in DH's car center with belt or outboard with LATCH. His car has side curtain bags...so I might stick with...

    Question RF tether & installed anchor

    2 seperate questions: 1. Where the FP/Britax seats allowed to be tethered while RF? I don't think so, but I can't remember 100%. 2. Does anyone have a picture of dealer installed TA's in a Chrysler Minivan? I'm helping a mom who has a 2000 T & C van, but is unsure if TA's were installed by...

    Guess what the pedi told me

    So I took Nicholas for his 6 month pedi visit today. Dr asked me if he was still riding RF, I said of course. Then he told me that they are now reccomending to stay RF to 4 yrs old, but the academy didn't have an official policy on it yet! The concern he's hearing from parents is that the...
