A six year old SnugRide likely has a 20 lb and 26 inch limit (rather than the newer 22 pounds and 29 inches). I think the bigger ones came out in 2004? That small of a seat does not tend to last more than 6 or so months for a lot of kids. You definitely would need a new seat for any future children, but if baby is coming in June, you could easily use it till December (or until baby outgrows it) and then move baby to a convertible. My son was born in June 2003 and outgrew his SnugRide seat by October 2003. One thing to consider too is to make sure your sister has all the parts and everything works well. You will need a locking clip with that seat to install it with a retracting lap/shoulder belt or it tips sideways. And make sure it is one with a 5 point harness with a front adjuster. 3 point harnesses, as well as 5 point harnesses without front adjusters were much more common back when that seat was new. Ours did not have a front adjuster, I really wish it had but by the time we realized our mistake he was rapidly outgrowing the darn thing, LOL. If it lacks a front adjuster, I would spring for a new seat in your shoes.

"No American president has ever supported a major expansion of civil rights that has not ultimately been adopted by the American people - and I have no doubt that this will be no exception. The march of freedom that has sustained our country since the Revolution of 1776 continues, and no matter what setbacks may occur in a given state, freedom will triumph over fear and equality will prevail over exclusion." -Michael Bloomberg
