    Would this be safe?

    A mom on another board I use asked about this product. http://www.imperfecthomemaking.com/2012/01/tutorial-hooded-car-seat-blankies.html It's how to make a blanket that lays in the carseat (with slits for the harness) and then wraps around baby after they are buckled in. Thanks for any input!

    3 across in a 2002 Rendezvous?

    I am trying to figure out the carseat situation for when the little gets here. I am thinking a FlexLoc for her to start. My oldest is in a backless Monterey, not ready to 5 step yet. My 4.5 year old is in a FF Complete Air, but I am wanting to get another seat with a higher weight limit for...

    Check the fit for me please?

    Al will be 10 on the 31st. He asked me if he passes the 5 step test yet and I was not sure so I am posting pics to ask you guys. I think he is very close but still needs to be in a booster for a little while yet. As of this morning, he is 100lbs & 4'7" tall (I'm 4'11"! :eek:).

    Monterey or ProBooster?

    What would you pick for a 4'3", 85lb boy with a shorter torso? He is starting to feel kind of squished in the Vivo and would like a new seat. He is slouching to fit into it, so I really want to get something he will sit right in. I'm not ready for him to be in a backless and he has tons of...

    Tell me about the Hyundai Santa Fe

    I'm looking at smaller SUVs, I really like the Santa Fe. Looking at MSN Autos, the 2003 is in my price range. It looks to be good crash tests, and pretty reliable. I would have to take a trip to Portland to find one to even test drive so I'm trying to get as much information as possible. Are...

    I want to buy a new car and I'm lost. Help!

    With this year's taxes, I want to buy myself a new car. I've had my current one for quite awhile, and I just need something a little bigger. I drive a '98 Mercury Sable currently. I'm not really interested in minivans, although I do like the look of the Honda Odyssey, I just can't swing the...

    Which booster?

    If you had an extra $150, what highback booster would you get for a 70 lb, 51" tall w/a 18" torso, 8 year old? He rides in a '89 Isuzu Trooper (grandpa's car) & '98 Mercury Sable (my car). Both do not have headrests, so would like to keep him in a HB as long as possible. I would likely keep...

    Looking for crash test of an infant seat

    I have a mama that is worried about the child striking the handle if it is up. The test doesn't have to have the handle up, she just wants to see how the child moves in a crash. I searched youtube, with no luck. I know I've seen one, can't remember where now. Thanks!

    Which seats to recommend?

    My STBX is a caregiver for a friend and her 7 year old little girl, L. They are not sure on a diagnosis for L, she is severely disabled - mentally she is about 2-3 years old. She's between 40-45 lbs. Not sure on height (STBX will get me a torso height tomorrow), she is pretty short. At least...

    Complete Air Issue

    As I was trying to tighten the harness around CJ today, I felt the it "stick" as I was pulling. I didn't really think anything of it, just finished tightening and went to Jenny's. Once there, I mentioned it to her and we uninstalled to see if something was catching the harness underneath. We...

    Question Uptown recline?

    I have my Uptown installed (rear facing of course) outboard on passenger side of my '98 Sable. It is installed with a locking clip because it just doesn't work with the seat belt's locking mechanism. I noticed today that it was really reclined, when I installed it fairly upright (40 degrees, I...

    Craigslist Threads

    As I was posting in this thread: http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=80849 I had an idea. I see a lot of "Flag this CL ad" posts daily. Would it be beneficial to the boards to sticky this thread so that all the CL posts could be in one place? What do you guys think?

    Talk to me about mini vans.

    We may be in the market soon. I have no clue on mini vans. I even have said I don't want to drive one, but it'd be so much easier to go places with other people with one. What do you recommend and why?
