It's been a while since I've had to worry about this but I noticed that dd1's blvd is going to expire in oct so it got me thinking about the shelf life of our other seats. I can't for the life of me remember how long all the brands allow so if anyone has the info I would really appreciate it. These are my current seats.
Britax frontier 80
Recaro vivo
Graco turbo booster
Sunshine kids radian 80 (older seat)
The first years true fit
Britax boulevard
Combi Coccoro
Chicco Keyfit 30

I think the Frontiers are all 9 years, classic Britax convertibles were 6 (new gen 7?), and the Turbo should be stamped with an expiration date in the plastic on the bottom, but you may need good lighting to see it (I missed it too). I don't know the others, but I think the measurements section includes expiration/use life for each seat. That's a lot of seats to keep track of.

Thanks! I'll check the measurement section for the ones I don't know. I didn't remember that info being there. I'll have to check the turbo booster. I definitely never noticed the stamp on the bottom.
