Based on what we read in Consumer Reports, we bought a new carseat from Target/Amazon.com. I installed it in my car over the weekend, and it seems nice and snug, even though my car is too old to have LATCH connectors. The plan is to buy a couple more carseat bases and install those in Mike's car and maybe also Grandma's or Grandpa's car. This item we'll need very soon after the baby is born---in fact, they won't let you drive away from the hospital without one. Since it's an infant seat, not a convertible seat, we'll need to upgrade sooner or later.
