the Triumph she said comes out in about 2 or 3 weeks... it is brand new.
See it must be opinion because I’ve put our twins and Asterix in Britax SIP convertibles and they fit great. I don’t get why people are always saying infants don’t fit in them. The twins where 5lb 19in skinny tinny preemies and Asterix was a 7lbs 20in chunk. We LOVED our Britax Wizards and Boulevard for our infants!!!

Re: BEST Infant Carseat.....

We have a Graco Snugride for DD and whilt it is safe and all, to me it seems too wide for her because she is always falling over to the side, but yet its too small and shes to big to get a snuggler thingy in there.
We had a Baby Trend for DS and it was great. Never had a single problem with it !

Re: BEST Infant Carseat.....

We are getting a Britax Companion...they are on sale at Albeebaby.com for $150...

I wasn't going to go the bucket route but didn't want to be told at the hospital that I couldn't take my baby home cause it was too small for the Marathon...also it will be nice to have the option to leave baby in seat even though she will be in my RS most of the time...I also don't know, logistically, how I will wrangle a NB and 2 other kids...dh also prefers a bucket...

Re: BEST Infant Carseat.....

For babies (4 months and up...or so) Britax is the best, in my opinion. We like the graco safeseat for infants.

I guess the Triumph is now out as I just saw it in Walmart it was $129 it looks very nice and I think we may go that route.

I wasnt even aware that Britax made infant seats... that is neat! We just have the convertible Britax, not sure which model.
