    Need 2 new carseats

    Hi, I have 4 month old twins who are quickly outgrowing their snugrides. Keaton is 17 and 1/2lbs 24". Cooper is 15 and 1/2lbs and 23". I'm kicking myself for not buying snugride 32. Not that I'd be able to carry both seats at one time.

    I have a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. They are in the 2nd row captains chairs using latch. I need 2 convertibles that are small enough that I or my husband can get back to the 3rd row to buckle my 4 year old. The captains chairs in the 2nd row can move forward and backward. They are moved completely back now to accommodate my 6ft 3" husband. But my long legged 10 year old says she feels cramped.

    I have been lurking on this site almost all day. Some of the seats that I'm interested in are the Marathon, ETA, Myride, and the Coccoro. They were premature and still have some head control issues.
    I do not have a BRU nearby, just a dinky toys r us.

    TIA, Beth

    Of the ones you mentioned the MR and Coccoro will help the most with the head issues. I'd also look at the True Fit, Radian (either the 65 and buy the infant padding, or get the 80 that comes with it), and Safety 1st Complete Air. Those are all (except the Coccoro) long lasting seats with tall shells, lots of head support, great room and fit for infants up to grade schoolers. The Coccoro is a much smaller seat and won't last as long, but it's a great seat I hear for the size it is.
