    Hello! We are thinking about purchasing a Town and Country. My hope is to put my 7 year old in a Frontier in Booster Mode, and 3 year old in BLVD in the third row. A 5 yr old in a BLVD and an infant seat would be in the Captain's chairs. I'm reading nightmarish things about boosters in the...

    Hospital Gives Free Serenade at Birth, would you keep it?

    Hello! Our hospital gives a "Free" Evenflo Serenade at delivery. Would you keep this seat or buy a different one? I've never been a fan of Evenflo, but thought this was the best place to ask if it's worth keeping it. If not I'd probably buy a Keyfit. Thanks!

    I just bought the Nautilus today at Target (yay! great deal!). However, I tried to install it in my husband's truck and was unsuccessful. We have Britax seats in my vehicle, and I love that I can get them in tightly with the separate latch adjusters on each side. I didn't try a seatbelt...

    What are the benefits of becoming a Car Seat Tech?

    I have decided that I want to become a car seat tech, and I looked up the dates for classes in my area. It looks like I will need to put it off a bit due to the 3 day commitment, but hopefully in the next 3-6 months I can take some time off and make it a reality. As I consider this, I'm...
