These days are a very exciting time for Graco combination seats! The lineup now features a no-rethread harness on the Nautilus and two new seats that have a lot to offer, including the well-priced Atlas 65. Boasting a tall 18.5″ top harness height, this long-lasting $129 option is an exciting addition to the marketplace. Let’s take a closer look at this lightweight harness to booster seat.
Simple Parenting’s Doona rear facing only car seat/stroller made quite a splash when it was announced. We couldn’t wait to get our hands on one to see if it was worth the hype! First, a kind parent allowed us to take a close look at their baby’s Doona during a seat check; then we were able to look even closer (and admire the variety of pretty colors that are available!) during the ABC Kids Expo.
Anybody who has ever met more than one child knows that kids are all different. They’re different sizes, different shapes, and have different personalities. For some kids, their differences make it more difficult for their parents to restrain them in the car. Luckily in the US we have a lot of options for kids who have special considerations.
Since 2009, the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), has been annually releasing their booster ratings, based primarily on fit of the 6 year old dummy, and, as we all know, fit is the best indication of performance. No matter how much bling your booster has, if it doesn’t place the seatbelt properly on your child, it can’t do its job.
Hauck is a well-known German company with about a century of experience making baby gear. We met Hauck at ABC Kids Expo in 2014, and were happy to see them at Kidz in Motion this past August as well. After selling strollers in the US for a short while, Hauck recently released a completely new rear facing only seat here in the United States.

Our final full day at the ABC Kids Expo dawned bright and early but we missed that part of the day thanks to our evening as high rollers at the casino.
We should stick to car seats.
