I've been researching for months now carseats and strollers. I'm moving to Ga. So I will definitely need a carseat. I'm looking for lightweight ease of use. The maxi cosi looks so comfy for baby, but not sure about it.
As far as strollers, I wanted a carseat that would fit easily on a stroller. But, does that really matter? Also I wanted one with tall handles (I'm 5'9"). I tried out the uppa baby and loved it. I also liked that baby could face me and was not too far away. The con is that it's expensive.PLus I would still have to buy the uppababy car seat....
Any suggestions? Help.emo1.gif

I'd get the safest, most inexpensive setup you can find. The carseat that attaches to the stroller is really useful for about 6 months, after that they can usually sit directly in a stroller (sans carseat).
