Question by gio_gda: How many baby car seats can you fit in the back seats of a Fiat Grande Punto?
I will be renting a car for my next spring holiday and I have 3 kids age 4 yrs, 2 yrs and 6 months. I can barely fit the car seats in my Zafira and I’m afraid that I will need to rent a big car to accomodate the seats. Thanks for your time!

Answer by loki_only1
Do fiats even have a back seat?!? Do you have another adult coming with you, because if you do…. there is NO way you’re gonna fit 5 people in that car.

Sorry toots…. one of the downsides of reproducing…. is having to utilize a minivan periodcially! No minivan?! ok… a chevy malibu or dodge stratus or that kinda car might accomidte the car seats for the kids. Or you could always go the macho SUV route.

Baby Car Seat Stroller

When parents travel with a small child, they always consider the safety of their precious bundle when they need to drive or travel. Baby car seats have been designed so that the infant or child does not get hurt in case of an accident. But parents cannot carry the infant all the time especially when they are shopping or sight seeing. Thus the need for a stroller so that their hands can be free and both the parents and the child can be comfortable. But there are advantages and disadvantages in using a baby car seat stroller.

A baby car seat stroller or traveler is a combined baby car seat and baby stroller in one. This is handy for parents who don’t want to spend extra money on separate strollers and baby car seats. The advantages of having a baby car seat stroller is that when you will be driving you can remove the baby car seat from the stroller and attach it to the seat of your vehicle, then stow the stroller in the trunk or back of your car. When you get to your destination, you can just re-attach the baby car seat back to the stroller. Another advantage with the baby car seat stroller is that the accessories have been tested for safety together with the car seat and the stroller.

One of the disadvantages of having a baby car seat stroller may be its size or bulkiness. Parents will already have to deal with the extra baggage containing the baby’s diapers and feeding bottles, so it may be a hassle having to deal with stowing away the bulky stroller. Many parents also do not consider getting a baby car seat stroller, instead they get separate baby strollers and baby car seats for their child. They can simply strap the baby car seat in the stroller the same way a baby car seat stroller is strapped. In terms of safety, what matters most is the baby car seat when parents do travel or go out.

As with baby car seats, one should check if there have been any product recalls for the baby car seat stroller. Parents should check this one out especially if they are using a used baby car seat stroller. Parents also need to make sure that the car seat will fit the child and can be attached properly to the seat of their vehicle. No matter how trendy looking the baby car seat stroller may look with its color coordination, it will not serve its’ purpose if the baby car seat cover cannot be properly installed. The same precautionary measures should be used in considering a baby car seat stroller and a plain baby car seat cover.

Another factor parents need to consider when they will get a baby car stroller when it comes to its’ bulkiness is how much more space is left when the stroller is stowed at the back of their vehicle. As with all baby strollers, parents need to check if the bulkiness of the stroller when stored will take up all the space in the trunk or back of their vehicles.

Cosco Car Seat Reviews

J. Carroll “happy parent”

5.0 out of 5 stars
I’m so glad I bought this car seat!

I was really wary when I read the reviews before buying this seat, because people had mentioned lack of cushioning, and difficulty of adjusting the straps. But this car seat was so much cheaper than everything else out there, I got it anyway – and I’m so glad I did!

As for lack of cushioning, maybe it has less than other models out there, but it’s plenty for my little one. Also, it makes for very easy clean-up. Face it, at some point or other, your kid is going to throw up ALL OVER the car seat (or worse, diarrhea). When that happens, you’ll be so happy you bought this car seat because it is very easy to just pull off the cover and throw it in the washing machine, and all that’s left to do is wipe off the plastic base.

As for the difficulty adjusting the straps, I’m not sure what other reviewers were referring to. I have had no problems at all in pushing the little button to loosen them or pull them tight, which we do every time we get in or out. The safest way to use a car seat is to pull the straps so tight that you have to loosen them just to get them off (but not so tight that your baby is noticeably uncomfortable).

My favorite feature about this car seat is the safety rating. As an educated parent, I worry every time we get in the car because I know how dangerous it is to be on the road. With this car seat, I worry just a little bit less.

My second favorite feature about this car seat is the view. This is probably a feature of every convertible seat as contrasted with an infant seat, but I wish I had started with a convertible and skipped the infant seat altogether (especially since we are baby-wearers and rarely took the infant seat out of the car anyway). Once we got our baby into a convertible (she grew out of her infant seat), she could suddenly see out not only the back window, but the sides as well, and she could even turn her head to see the driver. Car rides suddenly became a lot more bearable.

My one gripe with this car seat is the cup holder. We hadn’t even used it yet when the little plastic piece that holds it on snapped in two. So if you really need a reliable cup holder, this car seat is not for you.

Very safe!

The number one important feature of any car seat should be the SAFETY RATING! We checked Consumer Reports before buying our car seat and this car seat was the ONLY convertible car seat that was rated “excellent” for crash protection. Safer than Britax, Graco, First Years, Combi, etc. I was quite surprised that it was rated so safe considering the fact that it really is a bare bones car seat.

It’s not very soft & cushiony (but hey, neither is our daughter’s papasan swing and she’s been napping comfortably in that thing for 7 months!) and it was a little more difficult to install than the car seat that we’re using in our other car (the Combi Coccoro). But seriously, who cares, it’s all about safety and this car seat is safe. Just make sure when you’re installing it backwards to keep the level line horizontal and it will help you install easier; if the line’s not level the seat will be moving around way too much.

Happy, but if only…

Other people have covered the good safety aspects of this seat, and the fact that it works for newborns up to 40lb, so I’m not going to go into that.

I’ve been using this as rear-facing for 15 months now. Baby started out at 8lb – he needed an extra head support, but a rolled up baby blanket did the job until I managed to buy one – and at 26lb is still very comfortable in it. It has to be positioned in the center seat, otherwise there’s not enough clearance behind the seats, but that’s the safest position for a carseat anyway.

My main criticism is that while the seat is rear-facing it’s very difficult to tighten the straps to fit snugly, if you’ve previously loosened them for thicker clothes or different diapers (we use both cloth and disposable diapers, and it does make a difference for fit). There’s a button you hold down while you pull a central strap, and both are located in the center under the baby’s feet. Which, when rear-facing, means the base of the carseat is pressed against the seat and there is barely any clearance for your fingers. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve scraped my knuckles trying to get the straps snug, and I worry a little that other parents (or myself) might not tighten them as much as they should, simply because it is almost impossible to do.

Aside from that, it’s working well, and we’re very happy with it. I’m sure a more expensive seat would have some nifty extra features, but this does everything we need. If only there were another way to tighten the straps, it’d be almost perfect!

ursula r

there are cars you can put 3 baby seats in plus you driving but not anymore 2 in the back, one in front but its not good to have one in the front, i would go with a suv or even something bigger cause after all you need to be safe, good luck.

Pampers Baby Dry Diaper Reviews

rainwriterm

Bum Genius 3.0 and Fuzzi Bunz are two amazing brands. You don’t get the papery feeling like with a lot of diapers, they’re super absorbent and can become more absorbent if you want, they don’t have any harsh chemicals, and they’re made from extremely high quality materials.

Zane’s Momma

For brand new babies, I loved using Pampers Swaddlers. They are soft and VERY absorbent. When you little one get a little older, don’t be afraid to experiment with store brand diapers. I use HEB (grocery store) brand diapers exclusively and I can honestly say that I love them more than any other name brand diaper.

Julie D

huggies is best, i use target brand and they are good too. they are a lot cheaper

pebblespro

I have two toddlers and when they were tiny babies I used pampers swaddlers.. They have them for premies.. However, as my children got bigger I “tested” several other brands of diapers as well. I absolutely HATED the Walmart brand “white cloud” terrible leaky things. I LOVE and still use Bj’s (BERKELEY & JENSEN) brand diapers they have a money-back guarantee…. Which I’ve used ONCE I just upgraded the size…

I used to like LUVS , I used them I had coupons so it was cheaper than any other brand by like $ 5.. You may have to have some trial and error for your personal preferances… I’ve also used HUGGIES with terrible results. They leaked and leaked everytime… Eventually, I got my money-back from them…. If money were no option I would probably opt for PAMPERS but, they are expensive even if you have coupons…. I buy in bulk and for PAMPERS it’s about $ 35-$ 40 for a case… When I can buy Bj’s brand for about 1/2 the cost…

Michele B

I LOVE pampers! Luvs always leaked with me, Huggies ALWAYS left this.. goo on my babies butt! It was gross AND they leaks. I hated huggies! I never had a problem with Pampers! It was the only brand I bought. OH someone said something about the smell with huggies! so true!

cruelsuperset

Huggies diapers are AWESOME! I reccomend the wipes too, nice and durable so you don’t get poop on your hand when wiping little butts. LOL.

Anna

I LOVE PAMPERS!!! I started to use Huggies on my newborn but they smelled like pee. Plus they felt a Little rough. It depends on what size you need, but I used pampers saddlers until she was in size three cruisers. They were soft and they looked like they were comfortable on her. I also love love pampers sensitive wipes. My daughter is 8 months old now and she has never had a diaper rash!! Huggies wipes are too wet.

Ethel

Pampers for premature babies, but after they are to regular size Kirkland diapers, no question!

Mummyof3

HUGGIES hun, they used them for my son in hospital and he was 5 weeks early. I still use them to this day as I find they don’t leak and soft on bum.
Edit: Huggies may costmore but are the best and can get sizes 0-4kg.
I saw on tv the other da huggies nappies priced at $ 38 for 180 nappies for boys. Just look around you can get them cheap.

Janet

pamper swaddlers are the best, I think they have preemie size, they are soft and very absorbent!

Baby Cribs

If you’re in the market for any child crib make positive it meets all the minimum security requirements. As with your baby’s vehicle safety seat your baby’ crib will likely be a person in the most important purchases you will make.

Your baby’s crib will probably be your baby’s sanctuary over the early months together with your newborn spending numerous hours in his crib. A crib is somewhere where your newborn should feel safe and secure and a spot that you sense comfortable to leave him.

There’s such a alternative in baby cribs that attempting to come to a decision which child crib to purchase can prove quite a challenging task. It is ideal to try and narrow your choice down by initial deciding what type of baby crib you wish to buy. As an example do you wish a wood baby crib or an iron crib, are you seeking one thing unique or are performance and value a lot more critical.

Make a decision whether or not you wish drop lower sides. Child cribs include single and double drop straight down sides or you may well make a decision you aren’t bothered about acquiring drop straight down sides at all. If your baby’s crib is going to be positioned against a wall then obtaining both sides of your crib that might be dropped straight down can be a waste but a single side is great for most parents because it makes it simpler to lift your infant in and out in the crib.

You may possibly determine to go to get a crib that converts into a toddler bed or maybe a seat. Such a change in performance comes at a price and you typically need to buy a kit to convert your baby’s crib. It’s a great concept but rather costly and not necessarily worth it especially if you’re contemplating having an additional little one at a later date.

Most cribs include an adjustable mattress so you’ll be able to higher it to place your baby into the crib and lower it to support prevent your baby from getting out. An adjustable mattress can be a good to have but as with most things decent performance costs and so you probably have to head up the price tag range for your baby’s crib to make certain you get a mattress that works well. Go for a metal spring system if you may.

Once you have decided what form of crib you would like and have established a value assortment which you can afford then it’s time to verify out what cribs are around. The internet is really a excellent site to start because it saves hours on your feet and gives you a good sense as to the form and make of crib you would like to buy. Internet stores also present you some of your keenest prices close to so even if you’ve discovered that dream infant crib in town verify out the internet to see if you may beat the price, you typically can.

Bratt décor have a good array of infant cribs providing you with a complete choice from wood to iron and basic to designer. All of the iron cribs are forged by hand. If you need a carved crib, a hand painted crib or that little one thing which is completely exclusive you will uncover it within the Bratt Décor assortment along with a extensive and stunning choice of stunning nursery furniture.

nice for the price

This isn’t the greatest of cribs as far as sturdiness and quality are concerned, however, the price is dead right. The changing table, hamper and shelves are kinda flimsy and the front rail itself is thin. If i had seen seen/felt it assembled beforehand, my guess is that i would have chosen one that was more sturdy but this was almost half the price of the ones i actually saw assembled in stores.  I was not expecting top notch craftsmanship.

Crib Review

It’s as nice as I’d hoped but…. the one thing that urks me is the bottom draw on the bottom has no catch. Meaning it doesn’t stay flush with the crib. It always falls back and its not noticed or i have to bend further to reach and pull it out. I need to buy an accessory to place in the back to keep it from disappearing on me. Otherwise its what I wanted.

great crib for price

This crib looks really nice all put together. it took my husband and father in law a little while to put together (because of the many pieces for rolling storage i think). It could be improved by having drawers on tracks, but that would probably increase the price. i think that this is a great crib and look forward to having the baby in it. I also like it becasue there have be so many recalls on drop side cribs and this one lowers at the boxspring. our other baby bed does the same, and we’ve had no trouble dropping the mattress (not a hassle). worth it for the safety.
