    My Noob In His Carseat :D

    I had my baby on Friday And he is SO tiny compared to my first 2!! He was 6 pounds 1 ounce at birth and 5 pounds 9 ounces at discharge. He is 20.5 inches tall. We have a Snugride35 and I was scared he wouldn't fit but he does!! He looks super tiny in it but pretty cute too!!! Just thought I would share some pics







    Ok, so that last one isn't in his carseat... but it was cute!!

    OMG congrats so very much! He is so handsome (and I LOVE that seat pattern!!! when's it coming to the nautilus, lol).

    He looks so tiny- almost makes me miss the teeny stage. Almost.

    Thanks for sharing, and hope your sleepless nights go by quickly.

    Thank you I love the carseat too.. I saw the pattern and was like OMG argyle... MUST HAVE! I hope he will fit in the infant seat longer than my old 2 since he is such a peanut.

    We also DEFINITELY have to put a rolled up washcloth between him and the crotch strap (though in those pics there is a onesie there... didn't have a washcloth at the hospital) because there is like.. 2 inches between him and the crotch strap!!

    I can but it isn't ideal... in order for my passenger seat to be safe for a passenger the infant seat has to be behind it, which is fine except for right now it means my 2.5 year old has to be FF in the center. I feel ok about it though, he is in the Radian with the Safestop and it is the only way to have everyone safe.

    CUTE!!!

    The infant insert actually works, I wasn't sure if it would as some Graco headrests are useless.

    Yes, the infant insert is actually pretty awesome! I took it out to see how he fit without it (just out of curiosity) and it actually helps a ton

    I did. I was in Boston when you sent them (you caught me on the phone in the 40 minutes we were changing in Memphis). That third picture is so cute, though.
