    Re: Has this been discussed?

    It's well done and correct info. I don't like the author (nor does she particularly like me, we've had a few discussions), but other than being far too much of a fan of Britax (you can love Britax all you want, but acknowledge that other seats work as well, please) she's pretty good.

    Hahaha Wendy, that made me laugh. I love when people are straight-up honest.

    That's a good pictorial... bookmarked it for the people who really need a visual.

    Re: Has this been discussed?

    I agree, the pictorial is good. However, I can see what Wendy is talking about. I read her blog about Dorel and she is rough! I didn't get a chance to check much more out right now, once the kiddos have calmed down I'll read a little more. Is she a tech?

    Yes, she is or was a very active member on cafemom. She is also a Britax snob as Wendy mentioned.

    I just want to know where my *little* man went?! That is my little man in the last photo in sporting his WVU t-shirt.

    Unless it has been recent and she has not updated her tech status on the cafe, she is not a tech. She has never asked for tech to be placed by her s/n in the car seat safety group over there and I am a co-admin for that group.

    Oh really? She said she was. No further comment on that. She does know her stuff, if you can look at it with glasses that filter out all of the "Britax is best for everyone" information.

    Re: Has this been discussed?

    I liked the article, but I can see how she's a Britax snob. This is from the comments regarding someone's kid who needs a new seat

    "The BEST option is a Frontier 85 (around $202-209) which would literally be the last seat you’d buy for him, since it’s the longest lasting harness in height and weight, then also becomes a highly rated booster and has a 9 year lifespan."

    Does she know this family personally? I don't think you can say it's the BEST option without knowing what car they drive, whether there's a 3-across, and the family's budget.

    Re: Has this been discussed?

    Not to mention, there's usually a backless booster after a Frontier. While it's not always necessary looking at the numbers, most kids will want one.
