    Re: Mayo Clinic Car seat info....

    Nice! Especially this part:

    When your child reaches the rear-facing weight or height limit of the convertible seat — often 30 to 35 pounds and varying heights — you can face the seat forward. Until then, your child is safest in the rear-facing position.
    I'm picky, but I didn't like that it said infant seat handles must be down. That's not entirely accurate anymore. Overall, it was great, though!

    I thought it was actually a decent "pictorial walkthrough". Not entirely accurate but not so bad it is devastating. I do love the part you quoted. As for handles I think since there are only a couple seat that allow the handles to be up at this time it was probably better they put all handles down. This way for those parents who don't read the manual but read this they will hopefully just leave it down. I prefered mine down.

    Would have been nice to see something about maturity in the 'ready for a booster' section, but on the whole, very nicely done!

    I agree maturity would have been nice to mention.

    Great! I like that it doesn't even *mention* the 1 and 20 bit.

    When "1 yr, and 20 lbs." is mentioned first, so many people glom onto it without paying attention to the rest of the info!
