Diono Monterey XT Review

The Monterey XT is a great booster for any booster-ready child, especially those with larger builds.  It is easy to install and use.  The lower anchor connectors, cup holders, and adjustable width are all very nice features that make this seat uniquely customizable.  While it is bulky and won’t work well in a three-across situation, the Diono Monterey XT is definitely a great seat for bigger littles.

Graco Extend2Fit 3-in-1 Review

Graco has turned the CPS world on its head a bit with the convertible Extend2Fit car seat. The big marketing feature of the seat is the extendable tray that can give a bigger child up to 5 inches of additional rear facing legroom. We’ve found, however, that the seat’s best features are the 50 pound rear facing weight limit and how well it fits in a variety of tight spaces. When Graco announced a version that converts to a high back booster, we were excited to take a closer look at this 3-in-1 version of the seat, which has rear facing, forward facing, and high back booster modes.
