    Getting Regent - what should I do w/ GN?

    So I ordered my ODD a Regent, but what should I do w/ her GN? I had thought of just keeping it for my YDD to use when she ff (she's 19 mo, 30 lbs, rfing in a MR), but that could be a while down the road (I hope!). Anyway, should I keep the GN as a backup for ODD and then pass it down to my YDD (5/08 DOM)? Or, should I sell the GN and get my YDD something different down the road (or a new GN when she needs it)? I'm torn - I love the GN, but my ODD is pretty much ready for the top slots, and I couldn't pass up the deals on the Regent. WWYD?

    Re: Getting Regent - what should I do w/ GN?

    Well it is 1.5 years old now and you have another year or so before she'll use it (you hope) so that's 2.5 to 3 years off the useful life of the harnessed portion of the seat, if my adding is right? Given that I might be tempted to sell it and put the proceeds toward the regent, unless you really need a backup.
