Are there any seats like the Combi Zeus or Orbit Baby G2?

I'm looking for a seat similar to these two (if it exists). It's getting really difficult to get her in and out of the carseat while RFing and I think something like this would be a back saver.


She is a month away from being one, 24 (or so) pounds, and we drive a Honda Civic SI.

Those are the only two that turn on their base, which is what I think you want.

Keep in mind that before long, you can lift her onto the vehicle seat and she can climb into the child restraint on her own.

The problem is not so much putting her into the carseat. It's that I have to climb into the back seat in order to even buckle her in. I think I might be screwed. I'm spoiled with the infant car seat.

Oh... 2 door civic? Yeah, that stinks. It's not a hatchback, is it? Because if it was, then you could maybe buckle through the hatch.

It is a hatchback. You mean, put her in, and then buckle her in while sitting in the trunk and leaning over the top of the seat?

Yup, it might be easier! Worth a try, anyway!
