Cool

Make sure you can get the seat opened and closed with one hand, and the risk of pinching fingers (yours and the kid's) is minimal.

I got a great evenflo seat - like a race seat, basically; 5-pt harnesss and everything, tilt-adjustment. I think it's rated 5-40 lbs. I'll post the model # and some pix in a couple hrs.

It's an EvenFlo Medallion - It was about 120usd, I think.

Apparently, GeoCities is in a state of disrepair - maybe we'll see the pics later.

I'm not a dad but I am pretty sure that it is 10X safer that the baby be facing the rear of the car so that he/she doesn't fly forward incase of accident (seat back is supporting him/her)

Question Question for all you parents out there

Okay, my first child is due in June and as such my wife and I have started looking at infant car seats. Our personal preference is the Graco SnugRide DX5. It's got a five point harness for maximum safety as well as some other nifty features we like.

(1) does anyone else have experience with this particular carseat?

(2) are there other carseats out there that fit particularly well into the back of an RS sedan?

(3) any other thoughts/concerns that first-time parents might not have considered?

Thanks in advance.

BTW - we did look at the Britax seats (probably the safest on the market) but the cost was, we felt, prohibitive for what we get. Also, the lack of a base made us worry that (1) in fact it would be less safe because we would have to adjust the seat correctly every single time; and (2) it would be a PITA to transfer the seat between the RS and the Outback wagon.`

Doesn't Recaro have a seat? It'll probably cost a few pretty pennies, but ya can't put a price on the life of a child. Especially when it's your own. Good luck and congrats in advance .

Kaos - yes, a rear-facing seat is supposed to be the safest for infants, so the Evenflo that cvalle-sd has won't work for us (sorry, cvalle)

ivbdn - yes, Recaro does have a seat but it's a "booster" seat designed for toddler-age/size children, not infants. When that time comes around I think we probably will consider the Recaro and maybe even a Britax too.

Not only safer, but it's the law. Infants under 20 lbs. must be in a rear-facing seat. I think I kept my daughter in a rear-facer until whe was about a year old.

Another option is to call 1800Subaru3. I believe they will tell you which ones fit best.
Best of luck,
Dennis
