Outgrown

Do you get sad when your child outgrows a carseat?  Maybe they are moving on from rear-facing to forward-facing and you lament about the reduction in safety?  Perhaps the carseat was a sentimental favorite?  Or maybe you’re happy because you’ve always hated the fashion on the carseator were looking for an excuse to buy something new?

My son has been mainly riding in boosters for some time.   He’s over 9 years old and is now over 4 feet, 7 inches tall and nearly 80 pounds.  He’s just about to outgrow the tallest combination seat on the market in 5-point harness mode, the Britax Frontier 90 (or Pinnacle 90).  His days as a CarseatBlog model are numbered.  I am sad, but he sure is happy!

Another blast from the past. Epinions.

My first child was born in 1998.  We used our Century Smart Fit infant seat for about a year.  That’s when I began my journey as a child passenger safety advocate.  After having great difficulty finding a convertible that fit rear-facing into my Saturn SL2, I ended up with a Britax Roundabout.  Sometime later, I had similar difficulty in finding a combination seat and finally happened upon the Century Next Step.

So, here is a blast from the past, about a month after I started Car-Seat.Org and Car-Safety.Org in 2001.  It was my very first online carseat review at Epinions. at the same time as my original Britax Roundabout review.  We all have to start somewhere!  I was a top reviewer for the Kids & Family category for a while and made at least a few hundred bucks over the years.  I’m glad I deleted the vast majority of my reviews before Epinions shut down its community earlier this year and locked out authors from their accounts.  Yes, Epinions is now a throwback too!

PSA: Infant seats and tables don’t mix!

Please keep your baby buckled at all times in your infant carrier and be very careful if you must set it on a table or other high surface!
