Mommas, take note, now through Sept 13th, you can score BIG at Babies R Us.
I bought a great infant seat for Aisley. I love it. Unfortunately, I don't love the 2nd base for it, which really makes it only effective in ONE car. I thought about dropping $80 to buy another "premium" base, but when Graco came out with a new deal, I decided to purchase her convertible instead. Here's a few tidbits on why I love this Graco Convertible carseat. Graco makes this seat in different trims (Size4Me 65, MySize 65, Headwise, and Fit4Me 65). Basically they are all the same shell, with different connecters and fabric. I love the fabrics on the Size4Me, but went with the MySize just for this epic deal at Babies R Us.
-Its feature filled, and easy-to-use. You can adjust this seat with it already installed. It installs with either a LATCH connecter, or a seatbelt in just a minute or so. When I took it out to my car, to "test install" it, I turned around to give the floor model back to the sales guy and was promptly greeted with "Already? You're done?" Yep. In and out in under 2 minutes.
-It fits. It fits small cars, cars with weird reclines, and best of all, it fits MY car. It takes up less room in my car than her infant carrier, and still will take up less room with the headrest extended.
-Its comfortable. I cant vouch for this myself (because we all know my ass wont fit) but Aisley says it all-by saying nothing at all. She's a carseat SCREAMER. Carseat? No f-ing thank you. Since I moved her into this seat we haven't heard a peep. She still fights being PUT in it, but once secured she just chills and tries to eat her toes. She's happy enough in this seat that we can use it for fun:
-Its long-lasting. This is currently the highest height limit seat for rear-facing on the market. Diono has the highest weight limit, but since most kids out grow seats by height first, the height limit is also very important (especially with the genetics Aisley got from her daddy). Seriously. She only has this much room to grow:
