Comments: Carseats and Booster Seats

I was not a car seat nut until I bought one I absolutely DEPLORE. The Graco something or other. Pure evil. It's a bit like your first infant car seat (except it's a booster with 5 pt harness). Ick!

The one I am really liking (though I admit I was skeptical at first, for the simple reason that EVERYONE was so in love with it--I tend to not trust something that is wildly popular) now is the Graco TurboBooster. But it uses the car's seat belts, not a 5 pt harness. The only problem with it is that the oldest (nay, any of my 3) doesn't have enough finger strength to unlatch it. I guess that might be a good thing.

Baby Jay is getting to the point where his feet protrude from his car seat, even though the crotch strap isn't on its roomiest setting. I guess we need to start researching bigger seats. Choosing the infant carrier wasn't hard since Evenflo seems to be the only company with a handle you can rotate using your large muscles. I just couldn't work the Graco handgrip handle release. We've been pretty happy with it, though moving the shoulder straps up a notch seemed to be pretty involved (and it's about that time again!)

It's GOOD to be a car set nut. Well done, you!
