OT: Accident

We were in an accident this morning, no one was hurt. We had a fully convertible car seat (going from infant to booster) but for safety I would like to replace it I am curious to know what everyone has/used and how they like it. I will mention that Natalie is still under 30 lbs so we definitely need something with the 5 point system.

Glad to hear that no one was hurt!

I have bought for my boys Sunshine Kids car seat - I think they are now called Diono. I don't find it as bulky as the britax but man they sure are heavy.

And before anyone worries, it was in town at "low" speeds. Also we called our insurance company and they will pay for the car seat.

No advice about car seats as we didn't exactly choose either of ours (booster or car seat), but I wanted to say I'm sorry to hear about your accident, glad you're all OK!

We have the same as El, (was Sunshine Kids Radian when I bought it). I love it! It's so compact. But definitely heavy! So, maybe not the best choice if you plan to occasionally switch it to a different vehicle. I also love the high height/weight limits, so they can rear face & stay in 5 point longer than some other seats. Glad to hear everyone is ok, and awesome news about the insurance company paying for the car seat! Do they have a set $ limit? Or just let you buy what you want, and bill them?

I don't have any advice on carseats. Just so thankful no one was hurt!

I'm glad everyone is OK!

I think we have a Cosco 5-pt booster. I'll have to check on the model though.

Looks like I was wrong. Ours is a Safety 1st, but it looks like it's been discontinued since I can't find it online anywhere. Looks like everyone else has some good choices though. Best of luck finding the right seat for you!

So scary! Glad everyone is OK and I hope you find a good replacement seat soon.
