Nuna Rava!

This is what I’m planning for the next car seat!

Nuna Rava. If you can hold off until Black Friday, Nordstrom or some other places have sales

We have a clek floonf and we love it. It allows for more leg room compared to a lot of rear facing car seats. I’m in Houston, and a local baby shop allowed us to go and install different car seats in our car to test and see what fit best. I highly recommend checking around to see if there are options in your area to do that. We originally thought we would go nuna, but it didn’t sit flat in our car. Apparently that’s common for European cars. According to the ppl at the store a lot of people think they fit well, but turns out it’s not safe. I never runderstood the “the safest car seat is the one that’s installed correctly” Bc I thought it was just a matter of following directions, but apparently not all car seats fit in call cars the same. 🤷‍♀️

OP - just making sure you did not do what I did. For a while i thought my baby wasn't fitting in the seat. Then I realized I dint remove the infant insert. Lol..This was around 6 months age too.

Omg that’s too funny!

Cybex sirona s - it swivels!!!! I.e., it swivels to face the door, you put baby in and tighten, and then you swivel either backwards (at least until 2) or forwards. It makes it SO MUCH EASIER to get baby in the car seat, although they will definitely wake up when you get them out if they happen to have fallen asleep

Cool! I’ve never heard of this

Nuna Rava 100%. Much longer rear facing allotment than others. One of the shallowest for to aft to allow for more leg room. Great car seat.

Hey OP we are transitioning too and I found a car seat expert on insta who has these helpful car seat purchasing guides. Her name is Safe in the Seat and the purchasing guide is super helpful! It helps you consider the other factors in your purchase that really impact safety and usability! Highly recommend.

She is great. Also Car Seats for the Littles on Facebook, but it’s a little intense. I’ve learned a lot from lurking there.

I have a Rava and love it, but it fits shorter kids much better. My son is 96th percentile for height and definitely fits better in the Graco Extend2Fit we have in our other car because of the better leg extension panel. Since I’d like to rear-face as long as possible, the barely-there extension panel on the Rava is a bummer. I wish I had just gotten two E2Fs despite the obvious downgrade in looks/materials.

Clek foonf as well, very easy to clean and baby loves it

Return to work: I’ve been on maternity leave since the beginning of August with my first. It has been so amazing, and while there are tough moments, I have loved every day with this baby. In less than a month, I’m going to be headed back to work. My heart is absolutely broken. It’s not an option for me to not work (loans, mortgage, etc.). I’m having a really hard time with the idea of only seeing her a few hours a day and/or going back to travel. Does it get better? How do I get through this? 😭

I got there at exactly 6pm and she was the only baby who had not been picked up. It was so heartbreaking to see her sitting there, sad, waiting for me. I had to stop myself from crying…
