As you all know we're expecting our second bub in March, and we've been sussing out the situation re: car seat options.
At our recent expedition to our local baby store, the Maxi-Rider car seat was recommended to us for our older bub. Apparently it can be used from 8kgs (Claire is now just under 10, so no worries there).
I have also been eyeing off the hipod Barcelona Booster seat.
Both seats have arm rests (the Maxi-Rider's are retractable, and I believe the hipod's are too, but am not 100% sure - would appreciate clarification!) and a cup holder, which we would find really useful.
The price of the Maxi-Rider made me baulk a little (around about $390 from memory), but DH is very keen on it & once that happens, all considerations of economy go out the window!
I've just received some junk mail & see one store has the hipod Barcelona on sale for $169, down from $229, which seems far more reasonable to me.
Can I ask for some feedback from any bubhubbers who've used either/both these seats?
