And, on a similar topic, regardless of which way they're facing, just a reminder that the chest clip should be at armpit level and tight enough that you shouldn't be able to pinch the strap fabric together.

Rear facing straps should be below the shoulders, front facing straps should be above.

(Friendly reminder/helpful into for anyone reading this thread).

Too true. As well check the straps when your child has to wear a jacket for part of the day and then removes it. That can loosen it enough that it is not giving the protection it needs too just by removing the jacket.

And a child should never wear a puffy winter coat in the carseat.

Hannah's convertible carseat had straps that you retighten everytime you put her in te seat. You turned the knob until the straps were at te desired tightness.

Ahhhhhahaha and totally off topic but too funny. Everleigh was just sitting on hubby's lap and had a blowout. Maybe I can sway him to cloth now?

On one hand, I want to cloth diaper because I can avoid blowouts, I'm not adding to landfills and they're super cute.

On the other hand, I'm worried about wear and tear on my washing machine (which came with our house and is definitely not energy efficient), I'm worried about the amount of work involved, not being able to use bum cream, and about finding the right type/brand without spending a fortune.

Anyone here use cloth or thought about using cloth and have any insight?

I want to use Glowbug but I can't justify spending the whole $150 as an experiment if it turns out that cloth doesn't work for us.

Lol yeah someone kindly told us about the onesies early on, so I always take them on and off from the bottom. Over the head is a pain!
