    Thoughts on the new Britax Chaperone

    So, my best friend is due with a little boy at the end of July and she is wondering what infant seat to get. She has narrowed it down to either the Keyfit30 or the new Chaperone. I don't know much about the new Chaperone, what are the differences?
    DD1 10.5y/o seatbelt
    DD2 8y/o 45" 52lbs. backless
    DS 7y/o 51" 58lbs. ProBooster or backless

    Re: Thoughts on the new Britax Chaperone

    Those pages have a good rundown. Only thing I can't find is if the handle must be down on the Chaperone (it can be up on the Key Fit when driving, which I find leads to more people using the seat properly, because remembering to put the handle down can be easy to forget for busy/harried parents...)

    Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
