Hello all! I lurked extensively when I was pregnant and got awesome advice from all the moms here. I can't tell you how much i appreciated it and I have had great success with all my baby "stuff" you unknowingly recommended. Today though, I need help!
I never registered for convertible car seats because i was so overwhelmed by them that i eventually gave up. Baby has been using a Keyfit since birth (October 2011) but now is 22 pounds, too heavy for the bucket and he cries whenever I put him in because i suspect he is getting to broad for it - he looks a little squished! Either way, it's time for convertibles.
We have a Honda Pilot and a Honda Accord. Since Baby seems to be a little on the bigger side, I'm leaning toward a 65 or 70 limit, over a 55. I had thought we'd get Britax but there are so many and so many brands I see now that I didn't even remember from all my pregnancy research. Also, do you guys typically get the same kinda of seat for both cars? or different? We equally share drive time with baby...
Price is important but not as much as comfort and safety...we are pretty much assumming it'll be a $500 - $600 weekend by the time we get these seats. They totally suck me in with all the padding and head guards, etc - its like the companies know that I think that makes it look safer. Also, I'll go and read all the Amazon reviews and I'll be set on a seat but then I'll read 3 people that HATE that seat and be back at square one.
At any rate, if anyone has some ideas for me - I don't understand the differences between the Boulevards and the Roudabouts and at one point i thought I'd get Radians but I've read they are easy to max out in weight and AHHHHHH!!! Do you see how this is making me crazy? Help please?
