    Should I....? Carseat purchase/sale question :)

    I ordered dd a CCO last week and it will be here Monday or Tuesday. I did it b/c ds was picking on her when in the xtsls side by side...

    Now the fighting is getting better.

    Then Emars listed the MA... I keep thinking about my fight at Easter w/ the AOE in my dad's car. It is extremely hard to get a good install w/ seatbelt or LATCH w/ & w/o the base. I bet the MA would go in so smoothly. (09 Jetta w/ leather)

    Should I sell the CCO to fund the MA or what? Will I regret not having one this next year?

    Could you share the cco with your parents?

    The kid they need to rf has outgrown the CCO in rf mode height wise or would be close, plus I would have to give it to them since they are 500m away.

    They ERF my teenage cousin's 1.5yo and keep him weekly.

    well, we just got the cco installed today and LUV it! But true the MA is sooo easy to install. I really think I'd consider the MA for your dad's car. I guess depends if you think it'll be easiest for him.
