I just wanted to share that there is a new carseat on the market that some of you parents with younger babies may be interested in. It's a rear-facing, front-seat, airbag compatible carseat. I just bought one and I love it. It's great having Joel in full view and within arms reach. It makes our outings less stressful too! (Twice Joel vomited and got it in his trach. Both times he was in the back seat in his carseat.) I just feel like this gives me a chance to keep a close eye on him and still drive safely. It's also nice for night time when you can't see in the back seat. It's expensive, but goes up to 22 lbs. (at the rate we're going-we'll get lots of use!
Anyway, here's the website. I hope it helps some of you!
