They are set on seats with bases and not starting out with convertibles. He is pretty tall, and can't drive with the seat all the way forward, so we...

    Need a Narrow HBB

    My 8.5 year old, 52 pounds just outgrew the harness on the Graco Nautilus, so we switched it to booster mode. The way the seatbelts sit in our Subaru Legacy she is having lots of trouble buckling in. It is even difficult for me to buckle her in without crawling through the other side. She has a...

    Question Keyfit or snugride

    Hopping for an infant carrier. I looked at the key fit and the snug ride 30 today. I don't know what vehicle they will have (if any) and I am still considering just buying the Myride 65 instead of the infant seat. Is one of these easier to install with/ without a base, do any of them have...

    Convertible for infant

    I am shopping for a seat for my unborn niece. They do not want an infant seat, nor do they own a car, but only a (sigh) small motorhome type vehicle. I am trying my best to make this right for them, but you can only do so much. I haven't seen the vehicle, so I don't know exactly what I'm...

    The Maestro fits!!!

    For everyone who has followed my 2001 Nissan Frontier seat compatibility issues I got the Maestro today and was able to install it outboard! The middle lap belt still doesn't work and I have to twist the belt stalk 3 times, but it is in! I am now guessing the Nauti might install outboard too...

    Will Target let me try an install or just BRU?

    I need to try a Maestro in my truck, but my BRU does not stock them, and I don't know anyone who has one. The Nautilus is a flop :(. The Maestro is shipping site to store at Walmart next week, but I am worried it won't fit either. Do you know if Baby Depot, WalMart or Target will let me try...

    Best deal on a Maestro?

    Measured today at 16.5 inch torso, so the Boulevard is officially out. We scored one Black Friday Nautilis for 99, but for now she is boostered in the other car until we get another seat :( Fortunately we are both off work until Tues and she is a reasonably mature booster rider (but only 35#)...

    Question Should the belt look scrunched in the booster beltpath

    Sorry I am new to boosters. We got a Monterey today and it seems to fit my daughter nicely. But when I put her in the 2011 Subaru Legacy the lap shoulder belt is completely folded/ wadded/ scrunched into the belt path area on the buckle side. It positions the belt nicely across her lap and does...

    Will a Monterey fit a 5.5 yo 38 pounds

    Looking at some great prices on the SK Monterey, but most have recommended the GracoTurbo booster for my 5.5 yo because she is on the small side 38#, 15.5inch torso, 42 inches. She will be using it for a couple of short trips a week. The Monterey looks like a nicer seat, but if the...

    Is there a backless booster rated under 40 pounds?

    Let me preface by saying I have been dealing with this 24 year old mother with car seats for 4 years now and they are not very open, I don't think they turned her forward facing at 9 months... but I'm not positive. I work with 'grandpa' who like myself is a firefighter paramedic. We...

    High back vs backless booster

    My friend is moving her 50 pound 5.5 year old into a booster. She asked me if she could get the backless one and I can't give the reason for why she wants a HBB. Could someone refresh me please. She has a newer med sized SUV... I don't remember what it is off hand.
