Looking into a ERF carseat

Do you ERF?
Do you have any good carseats to recommend?

  • We have the My Ride 65. It has great side impact ratings, fits well in even small vehicles and has sturdy cup holders for my little man to put things in. It's easy to install and has separate, color coded straps depending on if you are ERF or FF. It rear faces up to 40 lbs, a bit longer than some and then you can keep your little one in a 5pt harness up to 65lbs.

  • Yes, most convertible car seats can rear face up to about 35 lbs. We use a Recaro Como, which has very good side impact ratings, and is very safe. Britax also makes great seats.
