Okay, still obsessing on this while I had a shower... the other thing I *could* do, if I don't get a not-scary bucket from my friend, is get my folks to buy me a Nautilus when they head this way through the States in April. My mom is coming over as soon as my baby is born so she could bring it right to me then. I know it's not *legal* if it's not sold in Canada, but seriously I don't care whose safety standards it meets as long as it is safe. And I hardly think a cop is going to realize I have a 'wrong' brand of carseat and give me a ticket... I got pulled over the other night with DD in her improperly installed, not tethered, shoddy looking carseat (on the way home from buying the new one in fact
) and the cops didn't bat an eye.
Good idea, that? Or not so much? I'd save serious coin too, as carseats down there seem to be a lot less expensive for the same one. Is the Nautilus easy to find in stores, like if I said to my Mom 'Go here' chances are good she would get one?
