We just plunked down like $200 for a "convertible" car seat, after Elvis has grown out of her infant one. This one will last until she is like 40 or 50 lbs (she is 25 already), then she will need another one and after that a booster... I get it, it keeps them safe, ya ya, I know, I'm buying it- literally.
But Hazel Downing said it right, "nowadays you have to strap them in like they are going to the fucking moon".
Yep, that was Eddie's Grandma.
