So DH wants seats in his car now.

He has driven DS2 maybe 5 times in the last year and has never had DD in there. But now after trying to teach him to install seats he isn't confident enough so he wants seats in his car full time just in case. He can install fairly well but he's scared he won't do it right so whatever.

He drives and '01 Honda Accord with LATCH.

The XTSL fits great FF for DS2.

Going to put the MA65 in there for DD when I get a new harness. RF of course.

I guess a base for whatever for the noob.

So this means I get new seats for my van. '06 Kia Sedona.

I thinking a MR for DD. Not too much $ but long lasting.

I'm looking at the GN for DS2. I'd love a Prosport but I'm trying to keep the $ down. DH thinks the Maestro was too "cheap feeling". He's used to Britax and Radian.

I'm thinking of getting a SR30 or 35 for the baby. Although I might go the convertible from birth route because I'll have a 16 month old and a 4 year old so babywearing the noob will be far easier.

Sounds like a van full of Graco, LOL.

I'm happy to get new seats but I have no idea how we'll pay for it.

I would get a bucket... Chasing a 16m old will be easier if u do in my experience :)

I'm the opposite. I think it's much easier to keep a handle on other kids when you aren't carrying around a bucket. I think the MR and GN are great choices. If you went with a convertible for the baby, I'd probably just get another MR. They fit newbies well IME.

SR 30 base will fit nicely (narrow) in car. Get a SR 35 base and keep that in the van for it :)

Well evenflo is sending a new Maestro to replace the dented one I bought at Target this weekend so I think I'll use that for DS2 in my car. DH didn't like it but it'll be fine for my van. I hate the XTSL FF in my van anyway.

I'm not that good at babywearing so maybe a bucket is better. I know that DH wants a bucket.

I'm with you. A bucket takes up at LEAST one hand; two if you want to be more comfortable and ergonomically correct. Babywearing gives you two hands, plus weighs 10 pounds less.
