    Question Looking for booster for older/taller kids

    Just checking in after a long hiatus... time for a car seat shake up. DD1 and 2 are 10 and 8.5 years old, but very similar in size and height-- essentially both are between 70-75 lb and around 5'5". They have been in high-back Graco turbo boosters since 7 and 6 yo after being in 5-pt harnesses...

    FS: Recaro Signo covers, exc cond, Desert sand

    I tried selling my two Recaro Signos earlier in July with 15 months left before expiring, but got no takers. The seats now have one year left before expiring. So now I've decided to just sell the covers and destroy the seats. The covers are in excellent condition (sorry, photos from last...

    FS: Pair of Recaro Signos in Desert Sand

    I'm offering up my two matched Recaro Signos. These were purchased new by me in 10/07 and expire in 10/13. So basically a year+ left. They are in excellent condition, never in an accident (as a driver of 26 years, I haven't been in a car crash in 21 years!). All original parts and...

    Free Recaro Young Sport Cover in Charcoal

    Our beloved 1st generation (from Ocotober 2006) Young Sport is approaching expiration so we're retiring it. I just can't bear to toss out that beautiful microfiber cover, so I'm offering it free to the first person to respond indicating they want it. I only ask the recipient to cover the cost...

    Nicest HBB under $60?

    We're getting an HBB for DD1 who is 6.5 and still EH in her Recaro Signo. It's for traveling by plane and in the Grandparents' car, and won't be used as her main seat. It should be lightweight for carrying. We don't want to buy an expensive one, but we are spoiled by the luxury and the...

    FS: Ergo, Maya Wrap and Sutemi (pic heavy!)

    We are doing a major de-cluttering of our home, and it's time to get rid of the three (yes, THREE) baby carriers that DW had. All have been used very gently, with the Ergo and Sutemi seeing the least use (probably no more than a dozen times used). All are in almost new condition and have been...

    How's the head slouching in the XT?

    for all you radian XT owners: how are your kids' heads WRT slumping forward and/or side-side? how do they sleep? do they complain about the seat and/or its headwings? as i've mentioned in some other threads, i need three radians for a FF 3-across arrangement in my car for carpooling this...

    Question Proper etiquette for acronym usage?

    would it be too hard for people to spell out a full phrase at least when starting out their posts before just assuming that everyone will know what the acronym stands for? i've been on this board for almost three years, and i'm still overwhelmed with the acronym usage. i realize that acronyms...

    For Trade: 2 signos for 2 radians

    as much as i (and both DDs) love our signos, they have to go. we have to do 3-across this fall and the only way that i've figured it can work is with 3 radians. so if anyone would like to trade two radians for two signos (both in midnight desert), let me know. both have DOMs of 10/07. both...

    We turned her...

    we just turned DD2 FF at 25 months and 28 lbs. her signo was getting really cramped RF and she complained about her legs being bent. but the worst part was getting her in and out. the signo is a beast of a seat and with those SIP wings, for RFing it's really better suited for a minivan with...
