? about car seat
My son is 10 months ans has severe acid reflux. It was a blessing that the infant car seat we bought was easliy cleaned and waterproof type material. He is ready for the convertible size car seat now and I am having a hard time finding a good one that is easy to clean. Any suggestions? thank you so much.

Adriane Reese 05/16/07; seemingly healthy when born; diagnosed with MSPI, severe Reflux, Apnea, Ashtma, Epilepsy, and severe food allergies(rice, corn, milk, soy, eggs, oats, wheat, beef, chicken, squash, pumpkin, avocado, etc.);On apnea monitor, seems to be tolerating RCF w/carbohydrate mixed in; on Zyrtec, Xopenex, Prevacid
The good news is that since he will be sitting up hopefully you want have as many issues. We have the graco convertible car seat. It is the new one that also converts to a booster and it cleans up very well. It is higher than some of the others but seems to clean up well.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
(Remember you're supposed to wait till a year to turn around)

We got the britax roundabout. It was recommended by a lot of moms here. That's the only reason I spent that much $ for it. Maggie hated the car! It is much more comfy than most. If you compare it at a baby store, it sits up much more straight than some. I looked at one beside it (much cheaper) and it sunk down way low and her legs would have been crunching down on her belly.

So if you have a babies r us or something like that, I'd go compare that way.

Check with your
doctor first!
