What kind of carseats do you have?

I had a Graco but my husband was in a wreck in my Enclave this weekend (he's okay, thankfully!) so it's useless now. I'd like to upgrade to a convertible that will grow with my toddler better and allow him to rear-face comfortably for longer (dh wants to turn him, but I've overruled him, lol) and since I'm due in October, too, I want to get a new infant/forever seat while I'm at it so they'll be sure to fit in the seat and everything. So tell me, what do you have and why do you love/hate it?

I had the Chicco Keyfit 30 with DS... It had one of the best safety and parent reviews.. He rear faced until about 20 months.. The states recommendation is to rear face till 2 years old . Now we have the Graco forever car seat and we love it.

I liked the keyfit 30 it was very user friendly and very cozy for baby so we'll probably do that and then convert.

Our almost 6yo is in a Graco high back booster. We bought a Britax Boulevard Click Tight for our baby due in October. I didn't want to buy an infant seat to use for a few months and then buy a convertible so we went straight to a convertible.

I will ONLY but Graco!
I like the snug ride for newborns/ infants.
But I'd be happy with any of their carseats.

In my dh's car we have the convertable ones that go from a backwards facing seat all the way to a booster seat.  In my van I just have 5-point harness seatbelts that were built into the actual seats themselves that I use for my kids since we only have the two carseats in my dh's car.  We have an infant seat as well but I don't remember the brand.  I'll need to get it out of the closet soon and clean it off before this baby is born

We have a safety 1st on board air 35 infant seat. Safety ratings and comfort were my choices for choosing the seat we did.

I have the graco click connect 30 for my little one due October 1st. My 3 year old has a graco myride, my 7 year old has a harmony defender, and my 10 year old has one of those cheap backless boosters.

I love my son's Graco My Ride 65, but it's HUGE. It fits in our van well but it won't fit in any other vehicle.
