The Grows4Me fit all of our models well — from 3 days to 9 years old. There is but a smattering of car seats on the market today that could make such a claim! So families who would like to get that full 10 years of use from one car seat could conceivably do so with this seat. The primary difference between this seat and the Graco 4Ever is the lower anchors — this seat has the still functional, but harder to use standard j-hook style, while the 4Ever has premium push button lower anchors. Families who know they’ll primarily be installing this seat with a vehicle seat belt or who don’t mind the standard lower anchors have a great option in the Grows4Me.
Britax has brought so many excellent car seats into our lives over the years — rear facing only car seats, convertible car seats, forward facing only combination car seats, and booster seats. And yet, through all of those seats, they haven’t ventured into what we call the multimode (rear facing, forward facing, booster) car seat

Now, Britax has updated the old favourite to make it compliant with the new R129 (commonly referred to as i-Size) regulations. Suitable from birth to 105 cm or 18 kg, the new DUALFIX
Let’s pretend you’re going out alone or with only adults (impossible, I know, just bear with me for a moment here). You unlock the car, put your bag on the floor and your bum in the seat. Then you reach for your trusty seat belt, pull it across you, and buckle it. Easy, right? Without
NUNA’s Pipa Lite LX has been available in the United States for a while, but did you know there is also a European version of this lightweight rear facing only car seat? When NUNA asked if we would like to check out the European Pipa Lite LX we jumped at the chance! Lightweight yet full
Graco’s TurboBooster family of booster seats has expanded once again! Please join me in welcoming the TurboBooster Grow with RightGuide to the family. This high back booster converts to a lightweight backless booster seat that has a surprise inside! The RightGuide is described as a “seat belt trainer,” that lifts out from the backless portion
The 16th conference for the Protection of Children in Cars took place in the same venue in Munich as it did last year. There was a free workshop for all attendees on the 5th of December, with the actual conference running from the 6th-7th of December. Like last year, it was incredible to join so
Our Canadian team would like to extend a warm welcome to Baby Jogger. The City GO is an excellent addition to the Canadian seat market, and provides a versatile seat that is lightweight, easy to install and adjust, and fits a wide range of babies well.
(Almost) every car seat that can be installed rear facing has some flavor of recline angle indicator on the seat to show the correct recline angle or range as the seat is installed. Newborns or children who lack head and neck control require a more reclined install, while older babies with head and neck control
Our challenges with installing the seat lead us to assert that the Recline N’ Ride could be a good choice for children with special needs who require a deep recline when forward facing but it may not work well in some vehicles. It’s also quite limited in booster mode since our models struggled to buckle themselves into the seat.
