A big for you for what you said and how you said it and one for you SIL for being receptive. What a great update.

What an awesome ending! I'm so glad to hear that your SIL was receptive to your information. Now if only I could be as successful with my friends/family/acquaintances.

This was my first thought, but then she said she really wanted girly prints. We have a true fit and they just don't have nice colours/prints, IMO. But, still a great seat!

Re: How would you handle this?

MyRide has some cute prints; safety 1st complete air I think has a purple flowerly print now; Britax typically has some cute girly ones as well. Sunshine Kids (radians) has some nice ones too, but I don't think I'd recommend those seats to someone who has historically had difficulty getting car seats installed tightly.

That's a really good approach.
