2/14/14 - Conversion Car Seat upgrade

Update: Sam's Club currently has the Alpha Elite Convertible for a lower price than Amazon as low as $80 depending on your color options.  Here are your options.

While shopping for car seats for Makenna recently, we also realized that Kinsley was pretty close to outgrowing her own car seat.  We estimated that we have about 6 months before we have to purchase a new one, but now was as good a time as any to start the research.

We considered getting a second harnessed booster, but recognized that as both of them grew, Makenna would be out of her current seat about the time Kinsley outgrew a conversion seat that supported up to 52".

This opened up the possibility of getting a conversion seat for Kinsley which offers much more cushioning as well as recline capabilities.  As much as Kinsley sleeps in the car still, we didn't want to take that ability away.  Although the Britax Pioneer seems to provide adequate neck support and prevent head slump, being almost fully reclined seemed to be the most comfortable route.

The model we have decided on is the Safety 1st Alpha Elite Convertible Car Seat.  We allowed Kinsley to sit in all of the available options at Babies 'R' Us, and this one was easily her favorite.  The Amazon price is currently the lowest available, even with the trade in program.

There were other options at Babies 'R' Us that were cheaper, but we felt for the money, the additional padding was easily worth it.  The Alpha Elite also has an adjustable harness that extends much higher than the other cheaper options.
