Cora: 2 weeks old & 9 months old...craaaazy.
We have an infant carseat, that is great (chicco keyfit 30). We can use this gender neutral infant seat for the next babe. But little sweets is now 20lbs, and her little feet are touching the back seat. So I think we can start working towards a convertible seat? maybe a forward facing seat in the future? We have a truck and a jetta wagon. Neither of which have a ton of room in the back seat, but it's doable. For the infant seat we can only place it in the middle, with the passenger seat moved forward a bit. We are tall, so it's a little unfortunate. I should have bought the passat wagon umm 8 years ago....when I was a college student, not thinking about kids. But oh well.
I am mainly concerned about having a carseat that works well in the back of our Tundra -an upgraded truck we bought for kiddos instead of our Tacoma...yay!! suicide doors! fullseats! camping in the bed of the truck. ok. I'm excited. But more importantly I want our car seats we buy to work well. They aren't cheap either. So they must fit and be comfortable.
So any suggestions out there? What do you like? dislike? Do you happen to put yours in the back seat of a truck? Any input is super helpful!!
**update...we bought 2 of the safety first- alpha omega carseats at Costco, one for each vehicle. We love them. Affordable ($89 each) and Cora likes how upright they are. Win win.**
