    Maxi-Cosi Mico

    Can you please tell me everything you know about the Maxi Cosi Mico AP (the one I need to know about is good for up to 22 pounds). ~~ When was this seat manufactured? Is it still manufactured? (a colleague has the seat and I forgot to check the DOM) ~~ Can the handle be left up in the car...

    This may have already been shared...

    This video may already have been shared, so forgive me if it has. As we enter "heat season," this is meaningful. Thankfully, this video is all actors, but as we know, this happens in real life, as well. Children are forgotten in hot vehicles...

    Can we PLEASE get some fun covers like these?

    Other than Clek, I feel that covers are BORING here. I wish we could get covers like these:

    Need a video or other resource, please

    Does anyone have a good video or other resource I can send to three friends (all of whom have been in accidents recently, and all of whom are still using the seats that were involved in the accidents-- two of which totalled the cars) that shows WHY you shouldn't reuse seats that have been in...

    Low-cost highback booster-- which would you choose?

    For an inexpensive (under $40, if possible) "back-up" booster that will be used in multiple cars by several children, all aged 6.5-8.5 (and all average-sized), which would you choose? (all seating locations have head support and lap/shoulder belts) ~ Evenflo Big Kid Sport ($30) ~ Cosco...

    If you could buy ANY highback booster, which one would you purchase?

    My seven-and-a-half-year-old niece has decided that she significantly prefers highback boosters over backless boosters. Last night, she informed me that backless boosters are now uncomfortable (when she is in a NBB, she rides in a Graco Turbo, Harmony Literider, Harmony Transit, Evenflo Amp...

    Radian experience-- is this typical/what should I expect to happen now?

    My five-and-a-half-year-old DN rides in a Radian XT in my car, and the seat is typically used about once every two weeks (or so :o). Due to a CRAZY-busy summer, I think he actually only rode in my car twice all summer, though. At the beginning of the summer, DN was still able to RF in the...

    *Possibly* need advice-- carseats in a small convertible

    I'm not sure yet whether this will be a need or not, but I want to be prepared. What seats would you recommend, for use in a small convertible such as a Mini Cooper, Audi A5, BMW 128, etc., for a seven-and-a-half-year-old who is tall but slender, and a five-and-a-half-year-old who is on the...

    Contigo infant seat?

    This seat appears to be just like the Via, but with a different handle. But I've never heard of it. Is it new? Have I just missed something? Other than the handle, does anyone know what makes this seat different than the Via? Are...

    What is Ford's LATCH limit? Does it include the only the weight of the child, or the weight of the child plus the seat? Thanks!

    Combination seat for almost-four-year-old boy

    Please help me brainstorm the best options for this situation: ~~ Child will be four in September ~~ Child wears a size 5T shirt ~~ Child weighs around 40 pounds ~~ Seat needs to be able to be installed in a variety of vehicles, not all of which have LATCH (so an easy seatbelt installation is...

    Driving with a dog in the backseat

    Just thinking ahead... My yellow lab has a PetBuckle and a Bergan harness (though mine doesn't have a tether like the one pictured :confused:), and she is usually retrained in the car with one of those two harnesses. Both of her harnesses seriously restrict her movement to the point that she...

    Are these new Nautilus covers?

    Apparently carseats make great nests

    I am trying to get her to send pictures of what is left of the seat... My friend is expecting her second child in early May. When her daughter outgrew her infant seat a little over a year ago, my friend cleaned the cover, wiped off the shell, and neatly packaged the seat in a box and put it...

    Cosco Stack-it

    What is this? This looks VERY light-weight, even more so than the other "cheap" boosters. Does it just appear that way, or is it VERY light-weight? Look at the rough...

    My love of harnessed seats has been reinforced this week

    I have kept the kids in my life harnessed as long as possible because... it is easier for me. :o I do use boosters if necessary, but prefer harnessed seats because I find them much easier to use. :o This past week, however, I have had to use boosters a lot and I have been reminded of why I so...

    Another 'which booster?' thread... but this one's different!

    Later this week, my sister, her two children (aged 4 and 6), her friend and her daughter (aged 6), and I will be going dowtown together. My sister will drive because it is easier (and cheaper) to just pile us all into one vehicle. My sister's kids both ride in Regents and they'll stay in those...
