One year after our dear friend and CSFTL colleague Jennifer Penick died, our own Heathyr shares her thoughts on how much Jennifer impacted the work we do here at CSFTL and impacted Heathyr’s own life. It was just another day. I sat down at my desk with my LATCH manual and a cup of coffee,
Britax’s range of European booster seats has grown yet again! The new KIDFIX III M looks at first glance to be nearly identical to previous models, but it has a few surprises up its sleeve. Let’s take a closer look, and see how it compares to the KIDFIX II XP SICT that we’ve reviewed previously.

Our team here at Car Seats for the Littles have been fans of the Chicco NextFit line since it was first released. Both the original Chicco NextFit and the Chicco NextFit iX Zip have some terrific ease of use features that we’re very fond of, so naturally we are excited to have the opportunity to

We’re excited to see that Nuna has entered the Canadian convertible car seat market with their RAVA convertible car seat. Let’s take a look at this new car seat and see what changes
