    Pics of Keyfit please!

    So I am really hoping to get the Keyfit for this next baby. I am in Canada so we only have the 22 lb version, and it costs $250. So, I'm hoping it goes on sale. So, can you please post pictures of your keyfits? I'd love to see it without the infant insert, with babies in it, whatever. If I am totally sold on it, I may be able to convince dh that we should get it, even if it never goes on sale Oh, and I don't care which pattern the pic is.

    Is that the 22 or the 30? I'm thinking it's going to be my favorite too

    Re: Pics of Keyfit please!

    The Keyfit in Notting Hill is only a 22lbs weight limit (the gray/brown plaid one)
    Here is one of my DD at about 3 weeks and somewhere between 7.5-8lbs

    And one of her at 22lbs and 10 months.

    Re: Pics of Keyfit please!

    The more I see it, the more I think I am going to that seat!!

    Does anyone have the measurements of the Keyfit (slot heights, shell height, etc)? And any pics of the seat unoccupied, without the insert? Thanks!

    Yeah, my Notting Hill was 22...it has the same dimensions as the 30 (mine's long gone or I'd measure it for you, lol).

    So they are the same size?? I guess babies should be able to make it to 22 lbs then, before outgrowing by height.

    This is the closest picture I have of it without the padding. Like the PP Mine is also long gone or else I would get you measurements. And most kids should make it to 22lbs before outgrowing it by height.

    Unless you make unusually large babies, yeah... did you see that pic of Leah in it at 11 months and 20lbs? She's a pretty big girl, and I was still thrilled with how long the seat lasted. I've heard of the fast/early gainer babies be out of it at like 23 pounds and 7 months...that's a bummer, but still not toooo bad for an infant seat. The height limit is 30 inches, by the way

    Re: Pics of Keyfit please!

    My first baby was fairly small, but who knows what this one will be like But as long as it's bigger than the snugride, it's not a big deal. I'm hoping this baby can stay in the carrier for close to a year. Not for the convenience of the carrier, but because after that dh will want to get our other Radian back from my nephew, and he'll have to ride in a backless booster (and he probably won't be big enough for it).
