Car Seat for 4 Year Old

I'm in search for a 3 in 1 convertible car seat. I have a 1 year old and a 4 year old. I need to move my 1 year old out of the carrier and into a regular car seat. My plan was to give my 1 year old the Britax marathon that my 4 year old is in and by him a new seat since I will need a booster seat soon. I've been researching the Britax Frontier and the Graco Nautilus. They both have great reviews but I'm not sure which one to go with. I love my Marthon and I feel that the kids are very safe in them so I'm swaying towards the Frontier. ...

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...

Toddler Car Seat

Hi everyone, we recently switched our one year old over to a convertible car seat. We got a really, nice (expensive) one from my SIL. Here's my question, my hubby and I share the responsibility of picking up and dropping of our son at daycare. For instance, Jay will drop off and I'll pick up. I'm so confused about what to do about the car seat. With the infant car seat, it was easy to take out of the car and switch to another car. Well, that's not the case with the convertible car seat, it's large and in charge and difficult to maneuver...

Rear Facing Car Seat

I just have a doubt after reading a news article about new suggestions for kids in car seats. I know they say to have your child rear-facing until at least 1 year old and 2 if possible. My son has been facing forward for quite a while, though. He's 10 months old and at his last doc. visit at the beginning of February he was 2.5 feet long. If I were to put him rear-facing his feet would be sitting on the head rest. How are you supposed to keep them rear-facing when they're so long? Are there car seats that sit farther from the seat back of...

Recommendation on Convertible Car Seat?

My little one has quickly outgrown her infant car seat, so I'm looking for a convertible car seat that will last her a while. Any recommendations? I've heard Britax is among the top...which model is better? The Marathon, Decathalon, or Boulevard?
