I love Safety 1st Elite 65. I have one for DS, and the alpha omega one for DD. They're super easy to instal, not to heavy or bulky, 5 point harness, and seat belt accessible for booster. I think the weight for hers is 4-85 pounds and his is 4-100 pounds. They're basically the same seat just different pattern.
My question is car-seat related. We had a Graco MySize 70 Convertible car seat and an Evenflow Symphony for DS. We HATED the Evenflow's tightening system. The Graco was good, but the other day, I went to wash the cover, and the foam in the head surround was cracked and fell off. I took it to BRU for their trade in, and got him the Nautilus. I'm pretty happy with that on thus far. He will be in it until middle school (haha)! This LO will be our last, and DS is going to still be using his seats, so I'm looking for Convertible car seat recommendations that are easy to tighten, but cost less than $300.
It's not the installation part I mean...it's tightening the straps of the 5-point harness. We don't move the seats a lot, so the installation is really only once. But every time I buckle DS in, I have to pull so hard to tighten the straps. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

@CarsonsMommy @OperaSingerMommy I'm now checking out the Britax...for some reason I thought they were MUCH more expensive. What exactly is the click tight? I'm having a hard time understanding what it does.
Do people like the uppababy vista? It's kind of pricey but everyone we know in NYC seems to be raving about it. I think we are going to go with it unless some new information emerges. There seems to be a whole system with bassinet, strollerseat (? corrrect term), carseat... Also we might get the bassinet stand and use the bassinet for baby to sleep in the first few months . Thoughts?
ERGO vs Lillebaby Pros / Cons?! I'm leaning more towards ERGO but wouldn't mind some feedback
I have 2 Ergos- Ergo Organic and Ergo 360 and love them both!! I have a Tula as well and don't love it as much although I think DS preferred it for a while. I have back problems so the Ergo was MUCH more supportive and I could wear him for much longer with it than my Tula. I still wear him in my 360 at 19 months and 25 pounds and he loves it! And I love that he's contained! @stokesm21but I have no experience with lillebaby! I used the Chicco KeyFit for my son and then transferred him to the Graco 4Ever and 1 thing I don't love about that is when he falls asleep his head falls completely forward and I worry he will cut off airflow- it's that unsupported. Not sure if that's how all convertible car seats are since they sit more upright. But once I could no longer carry him in the bucket from the KeyFit I switched over! I love my single BOB but the double seems a little too big for everyday use so I was thinking about getting a glider board for DS but I'm not sure he'd stay on it.. anyone use them?
Another question: how hot is the Moby wrap in summer? I'm having a summer baby in Hawaii so I'm worried that doing a baby wrap is impractical. I know they make a lighter bamboo version. I watched the video for the Tula ring sling. It seemed too complicated for me. It seems like a huge hassle especially for that price tag. What are the benefits of the Tula wrap/slings over the others? Is it worth it? (Sorry if I missed someone answering this already. I didn't see it but having scrolling issues on mobile)
