All convertibles now have a 22 lbs. forward-facing minimum to be comparable with the industry standard.
SnugRide infant seats now come in 2 flavors: the $99 model and the $129 model both with the front pull adjuster. The rear-adjust model is only available in very few travel systems.
The Milestone All-in-One market has expanded to include more retailers.
The Size4Me convertible is now available with a Rapid-Remove cover that can be removed in less than a minute while the seat remains installed in the vehicle. Super convenient! It also features a new LATCH bar on both sides of the seat that allows the [now] single LATCH connector strap to slide easily from a rear-facing to forward-facing position.
The Atlas is combination seat sort of like the Nautilus, but it switches from a forward-facing harness to a highback booster, not a backless booster, too. It harnesses from 22-65 lbs., boosters to 100 lbs., has a no-rethread 10-position harness, and two-position recline. It retails for $129.
