    Items in Cargo

    Does anyone have suggestions for how to store stuff in the cargo area when it’s iust a big open space? I want something like a big plastic tote with a lid but I know that would be a major projectile. I don’t want just a big Costco bag because everything would probably fall out and be a mess, and...

    Need 8 Pass Van

    I need recommendations please for a vehicle that can seat 8 or more. It will need to accommodate 6 car seats (2 backless boosters, 2 FF and 2 RF). Hoping to spend 15K or less on a used vehicle. Bonus if it can tow a small trailer and has lots of cargo room.

    Best of No Good

    I just want to vent. I am super frustrated right now. We are expecting baby #5 in August. We have the worst van ever for 5 car seats. An '09 Dodge Grand Caravan. We aren't in a position to get a new car so I have to make due with what we've got. I have been researching like crazy (thank you to...

    Long Solo Drive

    I will be making a 10 hour drive by myself with 4 kids ages 7 to 2. I've done 4 hour drives but I'm nervous about 10. I know we'll be stopping a lot but any suggestions on how to entertain them, letting them snack, etc? Normally I would divide snacks up into individual baggies and every 2 hours...

    Which Seat Should I Replace First?

    my 10 month old really needs to get out of her infant seat. I hate her seat with the passion of a thousand fiery suns. I have enough with our tax refund to get one new seat which means I get to swap kids around. In an '09 Grand Caravan I have a 2 yr old girl FF in a Roundabout that expires Apr...

    Help me help a friend

    i have a friend who recently moved to Moorcraft, Wyoming. She posted A picture this morning of her 7 or 8 mon old in a FF seat that was way too big for him. She said he was too big for his infant seat and they couldn't afford a convertible so that was that. I nicely posted that not only was it...

    Police officers Trained?

    Are police officers trained as actual CPST? (lol, sorry, I can never remember that acronym so that might be wrong). There is no one in my area so out of desperation I stopped by the police station to ask a few questions. They came out to check ... gave me a new infant seat and also insisted my...

    What to do - Infant Seat

    This past year, especially the past 6 months have been a really rough financial patch for our family. But when you end up pregnant, what can you do? Make the best of it. I am now 37 weeks pregnant and we don't have anything for this baby, other than what we've saved from the other kids. I have...

    Convertible for Newborn

    My friend started a post about this on Facebook for me but I can't chime in since I don't want anyone seeing my posts asking about newborns. I'm only 7 weeks - due Feb. 5th - no one beside my best friend and my husband know. I was planning on reusing my Keyfit 30 for this baby but realized it...

    Tether RF Roundabout

    SecureKid 300

    Baby Hates Carseat

    I'm sure I'm not the first one to have this problem ... my 6 month old has hated her carseat since day one. Her first ride home from the hospital she fought and screamed and has been doing that for the last 6 months. After this recent 5 hour drive to visit family I can't take it anymore. I had...

    Updated Install Question

    I got the tether extension from Evenflo earlier this week. I found it odd that it had an adjustable thing-a-ma-jig on it. Question is about the headrest. Do I need to remove the headrest? Do I thread the tether under it or over it? (the Roundabout one was removed because it was in the way of...

    Check out Seats Please

    Finally got my seats installed in our 1998 Chevy Subruban. I need feedabck. The install is tight with seatbelt. There are no anchors or LATCH Keyfit 30 - is it okay that the belt stock sticks up like this? It doesn't interfere with latching seat into base. Where the bubble is. I didn't lower...

    Are The Straps Right?

    Pulled my infant seat out of storage. I washed the cover and wiped it down. Preparing it for a little ones arrival. Somehow the straps and buckles were all twisted. I tweaked the buckles this way and that and I think something still looks off to me. I can't find a good picture online that shows...
