He is outgrowing his car seat....

Baby,Babynme,Chicco,Car Seat Ryan has been using a hand-me-down Peg Perego infant car seat. We are working hard to train him to sit still in the car seat while travelling for obvious safety reasons. Lately, I have noticed that it is getting more and more difficult to get him out from the car seat. He is outgrowing it. The paed said during the last checkup that his length is above average which is probably why it has become increasingly uncomfortable for him.

Like any first time parents I presumed, we have no idea what is a good, safe, reliable and value for money car seat. There are apparently so many brands, types and models in the market that it can be rather confusing.

All I know is that I am looking for a car seat that is safe, comfortable, not too hot (Ryan is one hot baby. His sweats easily), and value for money where he could use it for as long as he possibly can. I understand that there are some models that caters for newborns right up to the age of 4 years (depending on the weight of the baby). Of course, it has to look `cool' in my car!

Just read in the STAR today that CHICCO is launching a new car seat at the Robinsons, The Gardens Mid Valley City this coming Saturday (8th November 2008) at 2pm. Apparently, there is a 20% discount for all CHICCO car seats and free gift to all attendants. It looks like to The Gardens, we will go this Saturday. We have been going out almost every weekend for the last couple of weeks. I believe Ryan's mommy is happier that Ryan. Hahaha....

Any comments or advice from any experienced parent out there to help out this clueless daddy as to how to source for a good car seat for Ryan?

And to those who are also looking to change or buy a new car seat for your baby, it might be good to check out this deal. See you there......

Car seat, I have one, but not those big type of car seat. It's the soft type by Looney Tunes. I dont know why the big one never in my to-buy list for wawa. Cause for me it's too big and pricey.

The soft car seat I'm using now can be easily fixed and taken off. And cost Rm80+ only, and I get it during sales at 30% disc.

So far so good. While wawa was young, definetely okay cause he doesnt move alot, nowadays he will want to stand up so everytime I will bring some snack for him to keep him sit still.. Hehe..

I hope you found the perfext car seat for Ryan.. And have a great weekend ya.. :)

i can't remember how mummy bought shan leo's first car seat. but i know he has been using it for the last 3 years till shan rae was born.

mummy put him in his car seat since day 1 and have no problem with it till now *fingers crossed!*

shan leo is now using a booster seat (not as bulky as those bigger child car seats) coz baby brother is using the baby car seat which is good till he reaches abt 3 years old.

I'm having one suitable from newborn ups. My gal had been using it since she was born until she outgrown it when she was 1 yr +. Then we just put her sitting in the back seat with seat belt.

I feel nowadays babies is hot babies..They sweat easily...tht's why my son was "botak" most of the times..pity to see him scratch his heads when he sweats..luckily at this modern days most of houses were in air-con condition...how fortunate they were compare with our time...heheheheh

Glad to hear that you got your new car seat for Ryan...

Daddy said...

Hi Marilyn. Yupe. Totally agreed. Ryan is so HOT and he sweats easily. We have to place him in an air cond room almost 24 hours when he is at home. Otherwise, his shirt will be all wet. Our electricity bills are shooting off the roof liow!!!
