Got the SnugRide.
I went ahead and got the Graco SnugRide today - the $69.95 one. It doesn't have the head support insert, but we have one that will match the cover from when ds was a baby. It would be nice to have one strap to tighten and a button to loosen the straps, as w/ the Roundabout, but I'm not sure that those features and the not-very-soft headrest and strap covers are worth the 30 extra bucks. Plus, if this kid decides to outgrow the seat quickly....
The funny thing is that ds is, at 2y8mo, approx. 33" and 22lbs. He could have been in an infant seat like this one (up to 20lbs and 26") for most of his life. The irony. Watch, baby #2 will outgrow this seat in two months. The two will probably look like twins by the time #2 is 1&1/2y.
|Just remember that YOU are the one who controls when she is in the carrier!
Oh, I know. I just expect to get harassed by M/FIL for not making things easier on myself (or the poor sleeping baby
) by using it as a carrier. (We didn't have that w/ds, as he was in a convertible from the start.) The are rather uncomfortable/unhappy with the way we are parenting (EBF, co-sleeping, CD-ing, slinging....), as well as our lifestyle in general (organic/natural foods, earth-friendly cleaners....). They don't get why anyone would go out of their way to live differently...we make things hard on ourselves as far as they are concerned.
