    Booster for babysitter’s car

    Booster for babysitter’s car Hi all, My 7 year old dd needs a booster seat to use with the babysitter. I’m hoping for something lightweight and easy to use. Dd is a seasoned booster rider so a backless should work fine. She is 43lbs and 47” tall, and wears size 6 clothes. The babysitter...

    Seat for 18 month old in Africa

    Friends of mine live in East Africa and are visiting the U.S. soon. They have an 18 month old daughter who has outgrown her infant only seat. So she needs a new car seat for the trip and also to last when she is back home in Africa. I don’t know if the car has latch or locking seatbelts as some...

    Hello, Does anyone know if there is a difference between the highback affix used as a Backless booster and the affix sold only as a backless? Would the fit vary at all? Thanks in advance.

    NHTSA side impact requirement

    Do you know when the new side impact requirements for children under 40lbs comes into effect? Three years ago there was a discussion about new requirements for manufacturers and that they would have three years to comply. Also, does this mean that boosters will no longer have 30-33lb minimum...

    Please tell me what to buy for 4 year old

    I have a 4.5 year old who is going to need at least one new seat. She currently has a boulevard 70 which expires in a few months (this summer maybe?), and a combi coccoro that is almost outgrown by standing height and her shoulders are about 1/2" below the top. Stats: 33lbs, almost 40", 14"...

    Aidia boosters

    Does anyone know anything about the aidia booster seats? I saw them on Amazon and thought they looked cool but wanted to hear car-seat.org opinions before I try one out. That green amazon print would look sweet in my Subaru.

    Booster seat advice please

    I have my 9 year old (55lb 50") riding in my two Subaru vehicles (Impreza and forester). The problem I am running into is that a backless booster makes the shoulder belt look like it is too far over on his shoulder. How close to his neck should the belt be? If our current seats don't work does...

    Now I know why we say no 4-5 year olds in boosters

    Today I drove a friend's five year old to school with my kids. I put her in the cybex X fix because I figured she would fit well and be comfortable in it. Halfway to school I look back and she has wiggled completely out of the seatbelt! My own kid had never done this so I never knew what...

    Have you ever used a seat continuously until expiration?

    I was cleaning the car today and realized how worn my dd's 4.5 year old seat is. I don't think we have used any of our other seats on a daily basis for that long. How about you guys?

    Forward facing coccoro

    Hey all, I am trying to install a Coccoro forward facing in either of my subaru vehicles (forester and Impreza). It seems super reclined ff, more so even than rf. Any tricks?

    ISO Coccoro covers

    I'm looking for a back up cover for my coccoro. I'd love key lime, carrot cake, or strawberry shake. We don't need the infant insert, but strap covers would be nice.

    TCDPP warning on seat-should I find another one?

    I bought a combi coccoro the other day and when it arrived this afternoon the box included the warning for TCDPP. None of my other seats have ever had this warning-but this is the first seat I have bought in CA. So should I return it and look for a different brand? Even though I know cancer...

    RF is 500% safer than what?

    I was talking to a friend whose baby is 12 months about keeping her rear facing. When we say that rf is 500% safer than ff, what exactly does that mean? Has anyone read the Injury Prevention article from 2007 or so that came to this conclusion? It required a subscription when I tried to find it...

    If I loved the original roundabout, will I love the coccoro?

    I'm looking for a compact convertible to replace an expiring seat. I have other large rf convertibles but I was hoping to free up a little real estate in my honda fit for the next year or so. Anyone put a coccoro in a fit? Other thoughts on the coccoro? My 20lb/29" 18 month old with a really...

    Does NHTSA release compliance testing results anymore?

    I remember a few years ago the NHTSA would release compliance data on the current car seats. Do they still do that?

    Peg convertible fabrics?

    Are all of the peg convertible covers the same terry cloth like fabric on the headrest? My dd tested out the black version at buybuybaby today but the headrest fabric kind of stuck to/pulled her hair. I am thinking a smoother fabric option might be more afro friendly. TIA

    Baby HATES her seat

    My infant hates her boulevard 70. She becomes enraged as soon as she sees it and fights like crazy when I buckle her in. She doesn't have this reaction to her other seats (recaro convertible and infant bucket). Any thoughts on how we can make this tolerable for her (and us)?
