    In light of the disappearance of the Kiddy Cruiser 3...

    Convertible or combination?

    DD turns 4 in Jan. She is small, and will easily fit in her convertibles until she's old enough for a booster. We plan to turn her at 4, because although she'd still be able to rf she is itching to turn around. While I'm not planing on replacing all her seats, because she rides regularly in 5...

    Flying Solo with my 3 year old

    I'm thinking of flying to Florida in April with my 3 year old dd. She will be 3 years 3 months at the time. She is still rf in all of our cars. Last time I flew with her I used our Marathon G3 and getting it on the plane was a total PIA. They wouldn't let me board early, so I had to hoist it...
