The First Years Truefit, Sunshine Kids/Diono Radian, and Graco MyRide  all fit average sized newborns quite well and will last many kids until booster age (the MyRide is a bit shorter so it may not...

My sons were FTT (below even the preemie charts) at 1 month old, and one is now 98th percentile for weight (at 11months).  My  daughter was 90th+ percentile for weight and is now more like 50th. ...

I'm confused.  If the problem is that these kids are behaving extraordinarily badly, then why didn't you tell their mom that when she came to you asking why they were being excluded?  The comment...

While the newborn is in the bucket seat you shouldn't need to climb in the trunk, just pass the seat over the backs and click it in.  That way you can strap in baby wherever is comfortable for you. ...
