My LO is still little but I purchased the Dione rxt. I plan on rear facing as long as possible.

We've had lots of seats. Dd1 had an alpha omega (the Eddie Bauer version) and a my ride 65 and rfed til she was 3. Dd2 has a radian rxt that she's going to use when she outgrows the carrier. And she'll probably use the Eddie Bauer we still have until she outgrows it (our my ride got in an accident :()

I used a radian xtsl or something of the sort.



That was 3 years ago so I know they have new models.



Honestly the most expensive purchase I made for DD, but the best!

My almost 3.5yo has a Safety first Complete Air 65. She's 37/38lbs though so she's about to get turned around. I'm going to literally bawl. I want to cry thinking about it. I wish I was rich so I could buy her another seat to RF longer. I'm so scared. :( (My mother was paralyzed in a car accident when I was 12 so... I'm scared...)



I don't have any recent pictures but I'll look for the one I have. :)

My two older kids rear-faced until they were 3 1/2 and almost 3. They would have been rear facing longer but they both had horrible problems with getting carsick and it just got worse to the point that we turned them forwards. :cry:



They had the Sunshine Kids XTsl seats. I believe they are now called the Diono Radian... ?? I think the company was bought out. I loved the seats. As they got bigger and were FF we switched to the Graco Nautilus seats, after I totaled my car and had to buy new seats.



Now my youngest (11 months) rides in a Graco MyRide. I don't like how bulky it is, but it seems to fit him very comfortably. I think I may end up getting him a Diono.

We have the Diono Radian RXT. It rear faces until 45 pounds and it's made of steel. I love it.

This was Lambie at 2yo, she ERF'd to 33mo in a Britax Boulevard & Recaro Como. [She's now 5.5yo & harnessed in a Britax Frontier 85]

This is Chloe at 19mo in a Britax Pavillion, basically the new/improved version of Lambie's old seat...I loved the old version, but I REALLY love the new one!

...and so does Chloe. It's never a fight to get her in it.

My LO is 2.5 and she is still rear facing. We have the Britax Boulevard in Zebra print. I need to switch it but the state police installed it and I want them to switch it for peace of mind.

262131_10151343677066528_548912690_n.jpgSafety 1st guide 65 sport. its great for compact cars. Shes 31 inches, 20lbs maybe more, and 21months old. VERY easy to her her in and out from the middle seat while rear facing. LOVE this carseat. She gets anxiety at night and nothing calms her down besides holding my hand- and thats not safe- so we're going to forward face her in a few weeks. :(
