    Introduction: Today I am going to write a review about a car seat that I have personally used for my baby and i.e. Safety 1st Grow and Go 3 in one convertible car seat. I brought it for a newborn baby and I am still using it for a 2 years old baby boy. If you are looking for the best 3 in one...

    We're just starting to plan for a trip coming up in a few months, and we will be flying. In the past with our kids, we have sometimes not used a car seat, and other times used one. We've had lap babies and we've had babies and toddlers in car seats. This time I'm bringing a 4-year-old (actually...

    I'm planning for the future when DD is out of the bucket seat (it goes to 35 lbs so I've got some time). I will switch her to DS' graco myride 65 regardless of the fact that he won't have outgrown it by that point. He just turned 3 and is currently 40lbs and average height. So what seat should...

    <p>We are ready to move our little guy into a convertible seat but are having trouble finding something that will fit in our Subaru.  We tried the Combi Coccoro but I don't like how the shoulder belt routes around the seat.  It makes it almost impossible to get our guy in and out especially if...

    <p>when the top of his head is 1 inch from the top of his car seat? We will, of course, turn him as soon as it's less than an inch.</p> <p>Also, how long is an Evenflo Truimph 65 likely to fit a child once he must use it forward facing? Thanks!</p>

    <p>My lil man is getting to be to big for his 5 point car seat and I was wondering when I should switch him to a booster seat he's only 2 and is the size of a 3-4 year old in height I feel like he would sit in one better because in his 5 point hes always trying to climb out and I cant a just it...

    <div>I hope I'm posting this in the right place!  I'm looking for some info on the Click Connect 35.  I'm pretty familiar with the Snugrides, and we'll default to a 35 if I can't find anything else, but I found myself in love with the CC35 "Tangerine" pattern.  I wish Graco had something...

    <p>Hello! I was just wondering if anybody can give me some infos on the new car seat coming out! I also see different coming out dates. I'm due in 3 weeks... So if it does come out around the 15th of this month I'll be ok, but if it's in September it could be a problem. I have a Radian R120 for...

    Is there a good carseat safety handout that I can give to new parents that I work with? I see so many babies strapped incorrectly when out, so I try to go over the basics with clients at prenatals but would like to have a thorough information sheet to leave them. I usually discuss extended...

    <p>Is it possible to skip the "baby bucket"?  I'd really, really like to get a single carseat to last until the booster stage for my LO due in March.... price aside, I hate infant carseats.</p>

    <p>I'm just looking for opinions.  I know it's not going to be ideal no matter how we arrange it b/c it will be crowded, but I thought I could do my best :o)  We just purchased some radians and we're going to play around with the seats to see how we want it.  Little one is due in Jan and we've...

    <p>The other day a friend of mine told me she attended a car seat class and was told that booster seats are not mandatory in Canada. I was in shock. Is this true and why? </p>

    <p>We own a 2002 VW Passat, basic model, paid off years ago. It has just over 80K miles, runs fine, etc. My in-laws want to "give" us their 2005 Toyota Corolla with about 50K miles. (FIL has given up driving, and MIL doesn't drive at all). </p> <p> </p> <p>Which car should we keep and which...

    <p>We live in the UK but will be visiting my family in the US in the summer.  My dd will be a few weeks away from turning 4, maybe even turning 4 there.  In our car, she uses an extended rearfacing car seat. I need to have my mom find a car seat for her to use there on Freecycle, but what do...

    Hi all,<br><br> I'm looking for car seat recommendations! We're 16 weeks along with our first child (due end of July) and are trying to figure out what car seat will work best for us. At first I though we wanted a convertable seat, and while that would be nice just for longevity sake, I'm now...

    Is this safe? We have two kids, 3 years and 3 months and our small minivan has two captain's chairs. Now, we have both kids there, but are taking a very long car trip and I'd like to sit by the baby and put DS in the back next to my mom. Is this a bad idea? DS is in a Britax roundabout and DD...
