I don't. I decided about 5 years ago to avoid the news. It's lovely!
It sounds like a nice idea, but I'd urge against. IME, the problem with all in one seats is they a lot of things, but none of them especially well. If you want to minimize the number of seats you'll need to own, I'd suggest just getting a convertible seat(the MyRide65 is my favorite) and then buy a booster when you're child gets to that point(likely at least 4 years old).
Oh, ok! DH drug me out of bed at 7am this morning. Ugh! DS2 was up already, which wouldn't really be a problem. We let him play around some in the morning while we work to get up. But DH suddenly got it in his head to trim up the boys' mohawks. WHY at 7am on a Sunday I do not know, but nonetheless..... And it's been pretty busy ever since!

There's no way to know if CIO babies are actually getting more sleep, or if they've just given up on trying to get attention when the do wake up. We also have to remember that parents who CIO are often feeling guilty or defensive of their choice, at least at first, so of course will defend it and rationalize it by telling others it...
