So we've been waiting for months, almost, for the arrival of our Maxi Cosi Priori, the next car seat ["Don't let this happen to you" cautionary tale forthcoming, I'm afraid]. The Cabrio's been great, but even though the kid's still under the weight limit for it (26 lbs, vs 20 for most US carseats), her little legs looked kinda cramped. So we bought a disposable car seat, literally the smallest, cheapest one at babies r us, to use until the Priori arrives.
And except for the fact that the kid's thrown up in it four times--all with me, all in highway driving on a 2-day roundtrip between NYC and DC--she loves it. Suddenly facing forward must be like sticking your head out of Plato's cave for the first time and realizing the world has more than shadows and blurred lampposts in it.
But I wonder if other people's kids have problems transitioning from a rear-facing to a forward-facing car seat, or if it's just that my child is a weak-stomached mutant. Because seriously, it bugs.
