    Default Infa secure

    So, DS is 6 months and still in his capsule which I'm hoping to use for another couple of months but would like to use this time to research convertible car seats.

    From another thread I have found out that infa secure do the highest rf height markers which is really important to me, but now I'm wondering which is the best.

    The neon is only available at big w from what I read and is really cheap but then I read a review suggesting some of there other seats which have more comfort factors.

    If I go to a baby store, of course they will tell me the others are better, but is the neon really just as good??

    TIA

    Sorry, should add more....DS3 is turning one in a few days, and is still a good inch off the shoulder marker. The seat is also one of the slimmer ones on the market, which suits us because we have 3 seats in a sedan (all infasecure). The neon also comes with extra head padding, shoulder padding and crotch padding (around the lower belt).

    I can't help with information about the neon, but just wanted to say it might be worth looking at the CREP results to help evaluate safety of individual seats. Not sure if they have tested the one you are looking at though. Good luck!

    Awesome, thanks.

    Looking at the website I can't see that much difference between the neon and the kompressor aside from the sun visor?

    Don't mind spending the extra money if its worth it but don't want to waste money either.

    I love the slim line aspect as we plan on having more kids and although we will be upgrading our car I don't want to struggle to get 3 seats in.

    I plan on getting the 0-8 seat if/when we have another bub. I'm pretty sure it's under $400 at big w and that's it. Not having to buy a booster or what not later on. I've heard a lot of good reviews about it too.

    Sent from my pho....oh who am I kidding. It's rarely used as a phone

    Thanks for the advice but I've already tried that, neither of them have been reviewed

    Just wondering how big these seats are in rf mode? I struggle to fit a sns premier rf and that's only a short seat.

    I'll do a little bit of research and get back to you. I do know it goes off height, as I think most do these days, but I'm not sure what that height is.
