Okay, so I’m hoping that you guys can give us a hand.
Piper is (still) in her infant carrier. But, obviously, once the new baby comes, she’s going to have to find another way to travel.
Colorado law says that kids need to be one year old AND 20 pounds before they can go forward-facing in their car seat, which, if Piper stays where she is on the curve, will put us somewhere around December or January next year. I’ve also heard that a lot of pediatricians recommend that kids with Ds remain rear-facing until they get their neck x-rays at three years to check for AAI and AOI. We have an Odyssey van, so hopefully rear-facing a convertible seat won’t be too big an issue.
So, what do you use? Love, hate, or otherwise? I think my two top choices are the Britax Advocate and the Britax Boulevard, but I really don’t want to buy their newest versions because they go up to 70 pounds, which would put Piper in 8th grade, and I don’t want her drowning in it now.
One of the only other things we need to get before Baby comes is a double stroller. These are harder, because it feels like everyone has something different that they look for. But, that being said, anyone have one that they LOVE?
PS- On this note, if you’re in the market, check out AlbeeBaby.com- we bought Piper’s car seat and stroller there the first time and we’ve bought some other stuff there, to0- it’s by far cheaper than most other places on a lot car seats, strollers, high chairs- and it has free shipping with no tax. They are great!
