    3 yo in Graco Affix

    I am looking for some links to help explain the risks of putting a 3 yo in a Graco Affix. The seat requires 38” height and over 30 lbs, which the child fulfills. I feel in my gut that this is not the safest setup, but it would help to have an article that presents the risks to give to my MIL...

    Radian RXT vs. Rainier

    Will there be a review or blog spotlight on the soon to be released diono Rainier? I'm very interested in either the plum RXT or the orchid Rainier. Has the shoulder height changed or much of significance?

    Nautilus vs Elite vs Argos

    Can anyone give me some distinctions between these 3 seats? Graco's website is not any help. It eludes they have the same ht and depth, so do they use the same shell for all 3? Differences in ability to adjust harness upfront while installed? Diff. in harness heights? (the car seat data...

    I'm looking for input and suggestions for a back up seat for my DS for when he outgrows the current seat. Hope this is the correct forum. Basic info: He rides in FN85 in my car, but I don't want to spend $200 for another in my DH's car unless you all really think that's the best option. He...

    snugride expiring?

    I have a Graco Snugride 22, manufactured 3/12/2008. The car seat data thread and I believe my owner's manual state: Expiration Limit: Dec. of 6th year from mfg. Date Does that mean it expires Dec. 2014? And would sitting in a garage for the last 2 years speed up the expiration considerably?

    will I regret buying cosco APT?

    I am thinking about getting a car seat for my DD as her back up seat, since she only rides in one in my car but has none in DH's car. She rides in a BLVD65 RF, weighs 23#, 32" tall, 21mo. I notice the APT goes to 40# and 40" RF as well as FF. Also I plan to RF her as close to 4yo as possible. I...
