    Graco Connext Height Question

    I bought a Graco Connext backless booster for my 9.5 year old at Wal-Mart today. When I got it home and out of the box, I noticed it has a 57" height limit. Can someone explain to me why there's an upper height limit on a backless booster? I thought height wasn't an issue as long as a) the belt...

    3 boosters & 2 harnessed seats in an '07 Ody - Will it work?

    We are leaving for a trip to Florida (15 hour drive) on Saturday morning and may need to pick up another child on the way. He's newly 9 and 80 pounds and rides without a booster in his parents car, but I'll need to have a booster in my van for him as I'm not just going to assume that he'll...

    RF Convertible in a Nissan Juke

    We're traveling to Florida next week with my in-laws and there's a chance I may need to install my daughter's car seat RF in their Nissan Juke. It's a small car. I've put boosters in there before but never any RF seats. I don't have time to try anything out before we go as we'll meet up with...

    HELP! Flying Tomorrow & Moldy Radian Straps

    I just pulled my second Radian from the basement and opened it so I could adjust the harness height for my 9 month old to use on the plane tomorrow and the harness straps, part of the cover, and chest clip all have mold and mildew in/on them. It must not have been completely dry when I put it...

    What to do re: flying and vacation

    We'll be flying Southwest to Arizona in a couple weeks. I was hoping to use my Radians on the plane for my 3.5 year old and 8 month old. I know the Radian will work fine FF'ing for my three-year old as we've done it before, but I'm concerned about it fitting RF'ing for the baby. I was reading...

    Question Are there any infant buckets that will fit a 3.5 pound preemie?

    A friend of mine had her baby about a week and a half ago. She was a 32-weeker and just over 3 pounds at birth. The baby will hopefully be home around New Years and is expected to be about 3.5 pounds. Are there any infant buckets that will fit a preemie of that size or would they have to use...

    Question Is this recline okay for a newborn?

    We're planning to put the new baby in an EFTA from birth. I installed it today and I just cannot tell if I managed to get the appropriate 45 degree recline angle. Can someone tell me if it looks okay? Thanks!

    Comparison Pics of RF RN65 (new vs. old boot) - angle

    I'm sure someone posted pictures of this when the Radian with the new boot design first came out, but I thought I'd share just in case anyone was interested. Honestly, I was shocked that the difference was this noticeable. What you're looking at is a new Radian 65SL and an older style Radian 65...

    Would you install a RN SL with super LATCH beyond stated vehicle LATCH limits?

    The vehicle in this case is a 2007 Honda Odyssey (so a 40 pound LATCH limit). FF LATCH installation with the Radian is easy both in the 2nd row drivers side captain's chair and the third row center. Seatbelt installation is another story. Haven't tried the captain's chairs, but third row...

    Opinions Please - Would a Different Car Seat Help?

    My 10.5 month old is about 17 pounds and 28 or 29 inches. He is currently rearfacing in an Evenflo Triumph 5. More and more lately getting him into his carseat is a battle (arching his back, screaming, etc.). I know he doesn't want to be strapped down, but I'm also wondering if the carseat...

    Question Is "Borrowing" LATCH Belts Allowed/Safe?

    I have an Evenflo Triumph 5 and an Evenflo Victory. The Victory was my parents and for some reason, they don't have the LATCH belts for it. I would like to try and use it rear-facing for my 5-month old until it expires at the end of the year so that my 3-year old can go back to using the...
