Big Girl Seat

FYI... great deal.

We just bought Jane her "big girl" car seat - a convertible - as she's quickly approaching the height limit on her Graco Car seat that came with our travel system.

One of the
top rated Convertible Car Seats is the Britax Marathon - consistently at the top of all the lists I found online. On Babies-R-Us it's $350 including tax and shipping (Canadian) but we got ours at Baby Proofing Plus for $250 tax included and free shipping in Canada.

Wanted to give y'all a heads-up as this is an AWESOME price for this car seat - and, like I said, it's one of the best out there.

If you're in the market, this is worth buying now.

Rear-facing weight limit: 30lbs
- which is awesome as a few articles I read online said the longer they can stay rear-facing, the safer they are.
Forward-facing weight limit: 65lbs (insanely fabulous)

Height limit: 49"

UPDATE: Got a few questions on whether or not this seat was approved for use in Canada - some car seats are not tested in Canada or do not meet our requirements but are approved in the US. I heard back from BabyProofingPlus.com and, YES, this Britax car seat and all the car seats on their site are approved and properly stickered for use in Canada.

LOVE the Britax Marathon and the Baby Safety Superstore! I live down the street from their showroom, and they provide free installation when you purchase a car seat from them. It was a wonderful experience!

And, they were the only store that suggested the Marathon for my Mini (we've got one in hubby's car but I was dubious it would fit in my little go-buggy), but the rep was like, "You bet, I'll get it in there for you little lady" - and he was right! TONS of room!

If you're back in Misissauga, girl, you MUST visit the showroom. It's HUGE and has thousands of spectacular products :)
