Mazie Graduates to Bigger Car Seat


We got Mazie’s next car seat today, a Britax Marathon. They had a sporting pink one with flowers all over it, but we went for the more neutral and car appropriate (oh, and washable) version.

Mazie tried it out at the store and she loved it, or at least she didn’t yell at us right away. She is big enough now that she can use the bigger car seats but not too big for her infant seat, so we’ve still been using that. I’ve been thinking that she finds it annoying and wants to move up to the real car seat and stroller combination. That way she can sit up and see more things. She’s always craning her head around trying to look at things. I’d find it annoying at least.

Mazie is finally over her cold. Just some minor sniffles at this point. Tammy and I were able to catch it before she fought it off. Luckily we are able to blow our nose and have cough drops.

  1. We’ve been using the Britax seats for the past 5 years. Two of our three have graduated to the Britax boosters. My wife decided to get up close and personal with a post in a parking lot a month ago. The only benefit to such an accident is that when you pay your deductible after an accident, you’re entitled to new car seats in the car. $500 later and fresh car seats takes just a hint (the absolute faintest) of the sting out of something like this.

    I think she can sit in the Marathon until she’s about 15 too. That’s a BIG seat.
