Thank you all who chimed into my 'which car seats' emails! I went and looked at them and have done some research.. I was dragging my feet on it until I saw this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azgBhZfcqaQ&NR
We got our car seats for free from my SIL (thanks K and A) ... they don't have the latch belts so we use the seat belts and now I'm all freaked out ... so I ordered to convertable car seats.. which I will replace when the kids reach 40 lbs.. then I will buy a booster seat that still uses the latch system.. neither Cosco or Britax offered this. Britax got to 65lbs w/ the Latch system, but I would still have to replace them w/ another booster so I went w/ the Eddie Bauer Alpha Omega Elite and got TWO for the price of one Britax from this website: http://www.specialtybaby.com/eddiebauer.html (Thank you Allyson for the link) Free shipping and no tax!! YIPPEE!!!
Please please please secure your children w/ the latch system. Learn from this woman's loss.. do not let her son's death be in vain..
love and hugs to all you!
