Re: Which carseat are you using?

We have the Chicco Keyfit 30 that we also used for my 2 year old. After that she will probably move into a Radian.

I bought a combi shuttle 35. Installed it tonight and my very tall 2 year old still legally fit!

I love this car seat, we'll be getting a second one once the baby grows out of the bucket seat. We would skip the bucket all together if we didn't already have it from dd.

New baby will go into DS2's old Graco MyRide65. DS2 is now in a Diono Radian RXT and DS1 is in a Britax Frontier.

Due to having the Graco Duoglide and wanting to be able to use it occasionally with the infant seat I will be getting a Graco snugride (I think it's a 40) Im waiting on tax money to get it.

Another ditto on the Radian RXT. 3 kids in seats, hard to beat a radian!

I think we'll likely do the same, I HAVE the bucket in great condition so we might start with that, even though I typically babywear vs. carry in the actual seat.

Re: Which carseat are you using?

We have the britax chaperone from my son and will use that, then switch into the radian rxt. For the record, I don't like the chaperone. It is too plush making it difficult to get baby in and out of it. I was so glad when we switched to the rxt and so was my son. The seat is also extremely heavy. This wasn't a huge deal because I mostly babywear, but the few times I did lug that thing in and out of the car it was a nightmare. Oh, and for those that babywear the seat sits up pretty high on the base, which complicates getting baby in and out of the seat when the seat is in a smaller vehicle. We had it in the middle position of my car and that just made getting baby in and out that much more challenging (in addition to the cushion issue). In my DH's suv, it wasn't as big of a deal.
