    Lightweight spare seat & gate checking

    I am wanting to get my daughter a spare car seat to have on hand for when something happens to her normal seat. We are also flying in December so I would like something lightweight and cheaper so if it gets damaged it's not a huge deal. I am NOT buying her a seat on the plane as she will not...

    Question Safety First Grow and Go vs Evenflo Sureride??

    My daughters dad needs a convertible seat for his car for her and we are looking at these two. He is taking my word on extended rear facing and keeping her in a harness as long as possible so I want him to get one that will last since he's not going to be happy about buying another one. Which of...

    Question Harness pads on Diono Rainier

    Are they required for rear facing?? I can't find anywhere in the manual that talks about them but on the actual pad it says "use for children under 65 lbs". My daughter is 6 months and they are SO bulky on her and I feel like I cant get her straps tight enough with them on. I took them off just...

    Question New seat for 4 mo. Next fit, Boulevard CT, Rainer?

    I'm thinking about moving my almost 4.5 month old daughter into a convertible car seat because although she's only around 12.5 pounds the combo of her and the infant seat is just getting too heavy for me to carry. I have always been a huge fan of the Diono Radian for ERF and used one for...

    Which convertible car seats fit babies the best? Baby is 1.5 months old and about 13-14 pounds. Mainly concerned about the lowest harness slot being low enough for him to fit.

    Infant car seat that fits in 2013 Ford Fusion

    Anybody have a 2013 Ford Fusion and know of a good infant car seat that fits in it? My mom bought a Britax Chaperone so when my baby is born if she ever has him/her with her we don't have to switch car seats back and forth. Problem is it seems way to inclined for a newborn plus I am really not...

    Britax belly pad on a Radian?? Safe or no?

    The 3 yo I'm a nanny for constantly sits on the crotch buckle in his Radian thus making me struggle to dig it out from underneath him every time I buckle him into the seat! The Radian belly pad has fallen off so many times so I just don't even bother to put it on anymore. Is it safe or even...
