Default The worst car seats of 2010

I love this blogger. Car Seat manufactures even send seats to them to try out, review, post specs and blog about before they are released to the general public - and the reviews are the good, the bad and the ulgy, they don't hold back.

Anyway - they did a list of the worst car seats of 2010 if anyone wants to read up on it.

The Worst Carseats of 2010

And to even things out, the Recommended car seats (which line up pretty close to my personal seats that I recommend)

Recommended Carseats

Olivia's too! (Graco Snugride 35). At the rate she's going, she'll fit in this seat at least until she's a year old. (12lbs, 12oz & 24 3/4 inches, 4 months old.) She's petite.

My MIL was absolutely dead set on buying that stupid combo high back booster for my little man. "But it goes to 100 pounds!!!!!" Well MIL that doesn't matter if he's NOT GOING TO BE SAFE. All that griping over a $30 price difference between what she wanted and what we wanted--and we even offered to pay the extra $30.

I'm very proud that our seats are on the recommeneded list! We have 3 of the Safety 1st Complete air--my car, my mom's car, and MIL's car--and one of the Scenera 40RF in DH's car.

Ethan has the Scenera (its all black and gray) so happy to see its on the recommended list. I feel so cheap for buying him such a boring, cheap seat but dang it, they are expensive!

Oh crap, I think my mom just bought one off the worst list. Oh well. Not like it'll be used that much.

It will last her way past 1.

Hunter is 1, and is 22lbs and 29". The car seat is good for 35lbs and 32"

I have the snugride 35 also and I hate that thing. It is so freaking heavy and bulky that I now have a hard time carrying it with Kaden in it. (could be that she is just a chunky monkey at 18lbs)

Thanks for posting this. We are about to invest in a convertible and I fell in love with a print on the Graco Comfort sport at target but after reading this I def wont be getting it regardless how cute it is.

Cayden has the SnugRide 35. He is 9 months, in the 50th percentile for weight, 40th for height, and is only 20 lbs 8 oz and 28 inches. The seat will last forever
