Graco Comfortsport Convertbile Carseat

Hi, My 17 month is finally at 20 pounds. She's 30 inches long. We need to get her a new carseat. We have a Graco Infant Seat and it worked fine for us. I'm looking currently at getting another Graco Carseat. I want her to stay rear-facing so the ComfortSport is the only option. After looking at all the different features. I think we'd like the DRIFTWOOD model. Anybody had this particular one or any of the Graco convertible carseats? I'm looking for both positive and negative reviews. Thanks

Convertable Carseat in Small Car

We are going to need to purchase a new car seat very soon. We have a 4-door Honda Civic. It's a small car and we are worried that a convertable car seat is going to be too big. Do you have any recommendations of a smaller-sized convertable seat that you think will work for us?

Switching to a Front Facing Car Seat.

I am currently using the rear facing infant carrier, however, my son is now 6 months old and is at the height requirment to switch seats. He is still 1 lbs below the weight limit for the front facing (22lbs), and I am wondering if it is even safe to switch him yet? He still seems so young to be front facing but he can sit up on his own and when he is in his carrier he just pulls himself into a sitting position and gets angry when you have to latch him down. Plus it sure would be nice to not have to lug around the extra weight of the...

Car Seat Dilema

Hi Mommas! Here is my dilema: When I was pregnant I bought an infant car seat and what I thought was a convertible car seat. My daughter is now 20 pounds and will be year old in 2 weeks. She is getting to big for the infant carrier carseat. So I got out the box of the convertible carseat I bought over a year ago and decided to install it in the car. When I got it out of the package I noticed it is not a convertible carseat. It is a front facing car seat. The box says 20-40 pounds. She fits the criteria for the carseat, but do you think...

Rear Facing Seats???

Hey Mamas, Recenlty I heard that studies have shown babies "should" be rear facing until 2 years of age to help minimize injuries to head and neck should an accident occur. I must admit, I was bummed when this recommendation came out as our daughter is 9 days from turning one. That being said, I started to wonder if the Britax that I bought (2 of them actually) back in November of 2010 was ever intended to be rear facing for a child over age one (and within weight requirements). Your thoughts? I know these are 'recommendations' but I...

Britax Convertible Car Seat or Graco Snugride Infant Car Seat?

When deciding on which car seat to buy prior to the birth of twins, is it better to invest in two convertible car seats from the start that they can grow into (and hope they'll meet the minimum weight requirement of 5 pounds when they're ready to go home) instead of two infant car seats knowing they'll be outgrown after the first year and will eventually need to be replaced with another pair of convertible car seats anyway?
