    Seats with easiest covers to remove

    FD almost 6 months has severe reflux. We are constantly having to wash the cover on her keyfit. I would like to move her to a convertible soon but need something that has an extremely easy cover to remove and wash.

    From what I remember with DD (who's 7), her MyRide was a simple one piece mostly elastic cover to get off. Is it still the same? Any other seats that have easily removable covers? Price is a factor.

    She is 13lbs and 24.5". This will not be her final seat - just looking for something that will get us to at least a year when hopefully her reflux will settle down.

    Scenera NEXT. Also the harness is easily and cheaply replaceable.

    Oh, also, a more upright install might actually reduce the amount of the mess you have to clean up.

    The keyfit also has a zip cover version. If you call Chicco, they may be able to sell you a replacement cover for less than the cost of a new seat.

    Re: Seats with easiest covers to remove

    We have a Graco size4me convertible with a rapid remove cover. The color is called Finch. It is removable without uninstalling the seat from the car and without undoing the harness. It's got some of the nicer features you might want in a seat but for less cost of the Chicco zip.
    We also have a scenera next in grandma's car. The harness needs to come off to get the cover off but it's a very cute and decent little seat, nice and simple and you could buy two for under $100 to swap them out as they need cleaning! Our toddler likes both seats. (and her radian which I hope she never throws up in!)

    Thanks! Chicco NextFit is out of budget for now. I will look at the SceneraNext and the Graco - didn't realize they made one with a rapid remove cover.
