by Munchkin » Jun 25, 2012 The great news is that DS appetite stimulant has been so effective that he's had a growth spurt and is unexpectedly too tall for his keyfit 30! As far as weight goes, he's gained 3 pounds since March 3rd! We are absolutely thrilled, but left to scramble for car seat opinions. I really wish Chicco made a seat between infant and booster. As a compulsive over-researcher, I don't like the pressure of making a quick choice. I do daycare drop off and DH does pick up, so he's in both our cars daily. We will need 2 seats that can go rear and front facing and fit into an outback and a corolla. Ideally we'll get two of the same just so we don't have to learn two seats. I think we'll also need to buy a cheaper 3rd to have on hand as my Mum watches him one a day week in the summer and my BIL is staying with us this summer and occasionally does the pick up. Up to now, we've had the convenience of 4 bases and one seat. I know we've been spoiled with the ridiculous ease of installing the Chicco and I'm resigning myself to the fact that finding a similar trait in a convertible seat is a pipe dream. I looked at the Britax due to reputation but admittedly balked at the $280 (a piece) price tag and bulky design. So, beloved pscope parents, what do you recommend? Are Britax seats really worth it? (I know that I shouldn't put a price tag on B's safety, but we are still paying off medical bills from his last few procedures and money is tight.) Is there another brand you would heartily recommend? Thanks in advance!
