Now not only does the seat have to be safe, but not toxic as well...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

One more thing to worry about! Hopefully this will at least make people think twice about leaving their babies in the carriers constantly. I kept running into a couple this weekend when we were looking at houses, who were carrying their awake 8 mo. old in a carrier. I wanted to say, "wouldn't it be easier to just carry the kid?!" Obviously that would be rude, but they're so heavy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

that is what I thought, too!<br>
But I think that this group is trying to get more seats/children's products that are safe by educating parents. I thought that it was also weird that the same manufacturer (like britax for one) can have a seat in the 'most toxic' category--and then costco can have one that is the best choice, and then one that is the worst choice. So there is really no consistency with the product brand.<br><br>
I guess that the problem is exacerbated by the seats being in the car, especially when it is really, really hot. This makes the chemicals come out.

this is from the site:<br><br>
"HealthyCar.org includes test results from over 60 popular child cars seats that were available at Target and Babies-R-Us stores in late 2006."<br><br>
So, no not every seat is included. Not every carseat that we own is on there, but it is a start and brings awareness. You might contact the sunshine if you are concerned. I might be looking to purchase a sunshine kids seat (or 2) in the very near future; if I find anything out I'll let you know. I have a few models of seats I plan of researching further, additionally.

It is great info though, I'm going to definently look at this for the next seat.

Phew, we have Britax Parkway boosters and they seem to have good numbers. All I could find was the 2006 Honda Odyssey numbers and I have a 2004, but the 2006 Honda Odyssey was the best under the minivans. Yay!! How lucky am I!!
