    Disney cruise - checking carseat at port?

    My issue would be that the luggage is NOT treated kindly.

    Bad ad

    Just got a floater-ad.

    Lost subscriptions

    My subscriptions folder seems to have been reset to early March- none of the threads I posted in (and subscribed to) since then show up any more. I just tried resubscribing to a thread and that worked, it's in my subscriptions list now. This seems to have happened since yesterday.

    Replacing boosters- what should we get?

    My MIL was driving my kids in her 1998 Toyota Camry last week when she was rear-ended (she was stopped to turn left and the driver of a Honda Fit failed to notice the Camry's existence). The Camry, though it was driveable after the accident, is being totalled (for a pretty good price, I think-...

    Re: Problem opening threads

    Re: Problem opening threads I can't read threads, either! So I'm posting a reply to Brianna's thread by making this new post. :-P

    Session Timeout

    Used to be the board's session timeout was 60 minutes- any activity within 60 minutes of the last activity would reset it, so "new posts" could go back all day if you did something within 60 minutes of the last something. Now it seems to be set to 30 minutes, maybe less, and that's just not...

    Using an iPad to access

    I use my iPad at times to read the forum- I use its Safari browser and the forum helpfully tells me, every single time, to get the iPad app. I don't want to use the app- the full site on the browser on the iPad is great. I have to <cancel> the popup every time. Is there a way to get the forum...

    Nautilus as a backless booster

    I know I've seen pictures before, but what the heck. These are in the passenger side captains seat middle row of my 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette. Curly haired DD1 is 8.5yo, small for her age. About 48" tall, 52ish pounds: Legs bent comfortably at the edge, lap belt very low, shoulder belt well...

    Signature size

    I'm noticing a lot of signatures seem to be... growing. The large pictures, besides being visually irritating to me, are actually starting to noticeably impact the load times for threads for me. I went and looked up the guidelines, and thought I'd make a quick post reminding folks...

    A great poster up at a local event

    They weren't doing a seat check, but the child safety people who were selling low-cost bike helmets at our local fire department "kids day" had a display up, with an are you 4'9"? measuring stick poster, and some other information, including this nicely brief bullet-pointed list: (does anyone...

    Uptowns at Big Lots?

    I see this mentioned still regularly- has anyone actually seen these there recently? I haven't seen them at ours for many many months. (I also regret not getting two of the $25 Turboboosters when they had them)

    Older Evenflo Triumph, date sticker/stamp discrepency

    I feel like maybe I've heard of this before, but I'm not sure. I pulled the Evenflo Triumph out of my MIL's car today, because DD2 has hit 40lbs and I didn't want to risk MIL using the carseat anyway. She mentioned how it had hardly been used (true! 1-3x/month since it was purchased sometime...

    40lb 4.5 year old, 1-2 times/month, kinda broke...

    I'm flummoxed! DD2 has outgrown the seat that her in-town grandma had in her car (an Evenflo Triumph, 40lb seat)- she rides with grandma 1-2 times per month, usually on fairly short trips. My choices are: - get a new high-back booster seat for Grandma's car (DD2 has one there already)...

    Flying tomorrow- which seat to take

    We're flying tomorrow, 2.5hr flight. I'll be taking a Parkway for DD1, checking it, but need to decide which seat to take for DD2- the choices are the Nautilus (which is usually DD1's) or the Wizard (DD2's usual seat); up until now, we've used the Scenera as our travel seat, but DD2 is now .5"...

    Arrgh! My 3.5 year old wants to rearface again, but can't!

    I turned her forward-facing when she was a bit over 2.5, because at that point I wanted to encourage her communication skills, and she was so very clear about it: "I want to face that way." Her older sister (three years older) was dismayed- she would have LOVED to be rear-facing, but was too big...

    Where to buy Nautilus (haha) or Apex/Biltmore

    We're driving from the San Francisco bay area to Seattle with a friend, and I want to buy my friend's 3.5 year old (42lbs) one of these seats along the way to get him out of a belt-positioning booster. I would vastly prefer to pick up a Nautilus, as I'm not sure their car back home has high...

    Lightweight locking latchplate vs ratcheting seatbelt, and other questions

    My 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan has lightweight locking latchplates in the third row, but the seatbelts also can be pulled all the way out and ratchet back in. I went to a car seat check today (I think it was the State Farm child seat inspection day, and that's why it seems like there were...

    Car seat in back of police car

    Over on the Car Seat Reviews board here, I saw someone mention that you should never install a car seat in the back seat of a police car that has a barrier between the front and back seats (prisoner cage?), and I'm wondering why not?

    Buying a used booster

    I just let my 5 year old DD go with my MIL in a Britax Starriser Comfy booster seat that she (the MIL :) ) bought at a local consignment shop (because, what, my instructions to go to BabiesRus and get either a Britax Parkway or a Graco Turbobooster were too complicated?), and now I want to know...
