My New Seat

Anna's New Carseat

Here is Anna hanging out in her new Cosco Deluxe Summit High Back Booster. This now makes five carseats that we have in our possession which is a little excessive but each one has served its purpose well.

Infant carseats:
I still stick by the Chicco Cortina travel system as being a wonderful infant carseat. Thanks to the removable padding, Anna stayed in it comfortably for almost eight months and Maddie is still riding around in it. I will be sad to "retire" this carseat in the next month or two but I'm excited to pass it along to my sister-in-law.

Then there was the infant carseat we used with our double jogging stroller and in the second car which has never been a favorite of mine.

Convertible carseats:
We have two of these as well. An Evenflo Titan 5 which quickly got moved to the second car in favor of the Britax Roundabout (my reasons were listed in a previous blog). Anna has enjoyed the Britax but as she has hit this last growth spurt she seemed gigantic in it (the weight goes up to 40 pounds). The Britax also sat up rather high which helped Anna push and kick the driver seat in front of her. In hindsight, maybe we should have spent the extra $50 to get the Britax Marathon convertible carseat which goes up to 60 pounds. Oh well.

Sooo, off we went to find a new carseat for Anna. We looked at the Alpha Sport Vantage, the Evenflo Chase and the Britax Frontier at Babies R Us. Anna enjoyed sitting in them and trying out the cupholders. The Frontier was by far the coolest but I couldn't figure out what made it $150 more than any other seat in its division. We went home to do a little research and check with Consumer Reports and ended up ordering the Summit. As you can see, Anna is happy in it.
