Which Britax Carseat?

We need to buy a new carseat for my daughter (soon to be 1 y/o and 20+ lbs.). She is in an infant carseat now but is over the height limits (29"). We are looking at the Britax Marathon but I hate how bulky it looks. I would like to keep her rear-facing as long as possible. I was also considering the Britax Boulevard or Dilpomat. Anyone have experience with those models? Or advice on carseats in general? Thanks!

Britax Roundabout or Marathon???

Hey ladies, a few days ago I put in a request for info on carseats. I had my heart set on the Britax Roundabout and just recently purchased one. Our little princess is quite ready for it yet and now I am second guessing myself on which one?!?! So if any of you have the roundabout or marathon or BOTH...fill me in on the details of each and which one you rather have. Thanks again!!! :)

Which Britax Is Best?!

Hi Moms! I was wondering if I could get some opinions from you all... My daughter has officially outgrown her infant car seat (about time - she is 19 months old!! haha). So my husband and I are going to buy a new one this weekend. We have already decided for sure that we want a Britax, problem is I don't know which one. I am leaning on 3 different models; the Regent, the Decathlon, and the Marathon. I like that the Regent has the highest weight limit, but it sits up so straight that my daughter might not be comfortable when she falls...

Britax for Newborn?

Has anyone used a Britax carseat for a newborn? I am expecting a baby boy in about 4 weeks and I'd love some advice. I already have the Britax Marathon for my daughter who is 22 months old. But she used her Graco Snug Ride until she was 6 or 7 months old. I know the Britax can accomodate an infant 5 pounds and up. I've never heard or seen an infant/newborn in a big carseat. I know I'll eventually get another Britax for my son. Any thoughts?

Replace Car Seats After Accident?

We were involved in an accident yesterday. The car in front of me slammed the brakes (on the freeway) to avoid road debris, and came to a stop. Then I slammed on my brakes and came to a stop without hitting her. THEN, 3 cars behind me all hit and pushed us into the car ahead of me. So, we were hit from behind and the front. Thankfully it wasn't very bad and we are all okay! (my 2 girls were with me--ages 3 1/2 years & 15 months old). NHTSA recommends that child safety seats be replaced following a moderate or severe crash in order to ensure...
