    Replacing my Safeseat

    I had purchased another Safeseat last May because we still had 2 bases. We started using the seat in October when DD2 arrived and in that time the handle has, IMO, become looser as time's gone by and the seat now gets stuck in the base on occasion. And one of my 3 bases the labels have fallen...

    Need backup seat

    I need a backup seat for our second vehicle. We have a Scenera but can not get a good install with it in our 91 Caddy so I'm going to use it for SIL/MIL for their house or if we happen to fly anywhere since it's lightweight. So, now we will need another seat for the Caddy. It has a shoulder/lap...
