LOL, MY Dh is the opposite, he prefers US styled stuff. But then, he does already know that this baby is getting a Britax(technically European styled, but the US doesn't get the cool Euro seat covers) for a convertible seat(the new Marathon, which should be out in stores by the time he needs it, in the Fido pattern, so that it coordinates with big brother's denim fabric Britax booster seat). He doesn't have any say in the matter though, I know that the Marathon will be the best seat for this baby, especially if his body type is like DS #1's(long torso) because the Marathon will have a very tall back, and baby will hopefully be able to rearface in it until at least 2 years of age.
For an infant seat, I HATE traditional infant carriers. Being 5'1, the ones with the handle were always really inconvenient, and heavy for me to carry(never owned one personally, those were my observations from carrying them at seat checks) So, I bought the Fisher Price SIV. The handle is like a luggage strap, and the seat itself is very lightweight. I wanted this seat SO badly, I actually started calling Babies R Us's around the country, and managed to find one in Alabama, and had it sent to me. And then of course, an online store got some in for a close-out. LOL
