My husband and I are planning on buying a carseat for our little one next month and we were at Babies R Us today and really liked the Combi or the Graco snugride 35 Logan. Have any of you used those car seats and if so, what were the pros and cons?

What other car seats are you using or have used in the past that you loved? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!!!

I love the Graco brands, so that would be my choice. Get the one that fits your budget and your car. Goodluck

For an infant carseat, I have only had a graco snugride 30 and I liked them a lot. For convertible carseats we have a safety first complete air. I like that a lot too.

We use a graco infant carseat and we were quite happy with it. And I swear by Britax for a convertible car seat for later on. We will be getting a second one for this baby when she gets a bit bigger.

Oh and may I suggest buying from diapers.com, amazon.com, or even walmart or target. They are all cheaper than babiesrus but have the same stuff. I got my britax from diapers.com for $100 off.

The car seat safety group would be a great place to ask too. They have Certified techs that can recommend the best for your car and budget :)

We decided to skip the infant carrier seat this time and go straight to the convertible. We got the Graco My Ride 65

Yes! The Car Seat Safety Group is awesome and a great learning place. 

I used the graco snug and ride w/ dd1 and 2 but that's before I knew they don't fit a lot of nb's well. For this baby, we've chosen the Chicco Keyfit 30 because it does fit babies around 6lbs since that's what dd2 was, dd1 was 8lbs but the straps on the graco still didn't fit right.

We use the snug ride with my 4 yr old when she was born and are using the snug ride 35 with our new baby and we love them.
