Evenflo is one of my favorite brands so I can safely say that I was happy to test the Evenflo Tribute LX. I liked this convertible car seat for many reasons. The main reason was that it’s under $100. This is the perfect solution for parents on a budget. However, with low prices come frustrations. Personally, I only got frustrated by the sharp edges and limited padding. However, it did what I needed it to…

Chicco is a brand that has both good and bad products. I received the Chicco Kidfit Booster to test and I can say that it goes into the “bad” category. Right off the bat I was frustrated with this booster. I was trying to adjust the seat belt anchors and they were just too short. Also, the seat belt kept slipping out of the guide. It was unbelievably aggravating. I do like the high weight…

Have we mentioned that we love Graco products? They’re so affordable and safe. The Graco Sequel is a budget-friendly car seat that can convert from rear to forward-facing. Some may say that just because it only goes from rear to forward-facing that it’s useless. Well, it’s not. We loved this car seat other than the fact that the cup holders made it a little too wide to fit multiple car seats across one area. It…

The Britax Emblem was one of many convertible car seats that we tested. It does have plenty of features that make it worth the price. However, it can only be used for children up to 65 lbs. We saw plenty of car seats more affordable than this one that could accommodate children all the way up to 100 pounds or more. It does perform well in terms of safety, we’ll give it that much. The…

I’ve tested my fair share of convertible car seats, but some of them just didn’t work with my child. When I got my hands on the Cosco Easy Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat, I was instantly impressed. In terms of weight, it’s not much different from other convertible car seats. It accommodates children from 5-80 pounds and works from infancy until your child is ready for a belt-positioning booster. I installed the car seat quickly…

The Graco Slimfit All-in-One Convertible Car Seat is one of my favorites and I was happy to be able to test it. I can’t tell you how much I love this convertible car seat. It would have been better if it converted to a backless booster, but I can’t complain seeing as how it’s affordably priced. It can accommodate children from 5 to 100-pounds. This is a huge weight range that I really appreciate. Additionally,…

Generally I enjoy testing Graco products, but when I tested the Graco My Ride 65, I can’t say that I wasn’t disappointed. To start, installation was a pain. The car seat has the LATCH system to ensure proper installation, but the straps are hard to use. There’s a level indicator that shows if the car seat is at the right angle as well. When pairing this system with the EPS energy-absorbing foam and 5-point harness…

Based on our testing, the MightyFit 65 offers parents an inexpensive, lightweight, and compact convertible car seat option .Proudly made in the USA, the MightyFit 65 is made by American families, for American families. It does come with its own…

Convertible car seats are awesome. You can use them for many years before needing to transition to another one. I was able to test the Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 convertible car seat, but I ended up disappointed. There was honestly nothing I liked about this car seat except for the pivoting armrests and machine-washable seat cover and pad. Even though I could easily wash the seat cover and pad, it was a pain to install…

I appreciate a convertible car seat and it’s a piece of baby equipment every parent should own. I was very excited to test out the Graco Contender 65 to see if it lived up to the hype. To begin, the LATCH system made it very easy to install, but removing it was a terrible experience. The straps are much too difficult to release once tightened. I think this is a complaint from many people regarding…
