Discussion: Carseats

Post by iHEAVENn » Fri Aug 28, 2009 3:43 pm

So recently my son has appeared to outgrow his Graco Comfort sport carseat.

(Child outgrows a seat when there is less then 1 inch of shell above his/her heard or his/her shoulders are above the last notch for the straps.)

I've been looking around online at toddler carseats to try and find one that's not only comfy, but can Rear Face, and has a tall enough shell for him to still grow into..

So far my options are the Graco Myride or the Truefit.

So for the mommies out there, I'm wondering which car seat you're currently using/planning on using.

Why you're using that seat, how well that seat works for you and what do you like best about it?

we use the built in car seats in our minivan for when he is with us, they are so handy, but when he is riding with others its the cosco scenera or whatever

I have the one that growns with the child from Graco. When they don't need to be reversed anymore, you can put it forward facing and then when they don't really need a carseat anymore it turns into a booster.

Built in seats?? Never heard of that lol.



Well after reading a bunch of reviews we're going with the Truefit. The only bad thing people could find to say about this seat is that it's "bulky" :|



Honestly.. some people are just whiners haha

i can see where bulky would be bad, my sister has a 300 or whatever type of car, and she has three kids in car seats! it took her nearly a half hour to squeeze all of them in and have them in there correctly. so yeah if you have one or two kids it wouldnt be so bad but with alot of kids crushed in to a back seat bulky sucks

Well... having a tiny car and 3 kids is a bad idea anyways.

One of my friends is in that same situation but she can't afford a new car... or car seat for her 6 month old son.. So I will be giving her the Graco Comfortspot as soon as Logan's new seat arrives. <img src='http://www.helpingteens.org/groups/publ ... /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
