this is the car seat we finally decided on. it’s the maxi-cosi mico
in penguin. it’s hard to tell from the photo, but it has a black on black polka dot pattern in the material. cute! we’ll be getting two plus two extra bases. of course the polka dots are not the reason we picked these. we did lots of online research and spoke at length with a woman in a baby superstore. these are super safe and very light. they’re the number one seller in europe (which totally sold tripper) and are just now available here. they do not fit with any kind of snap and go stroller system made for twins, which is a bummer, but they do pop out of the car bases so you can carry them (so the lightness is important here). since we plan on getting a super safe twin stroller—like the valco runabout
or the baby jogger city elite
—this was really the best option for us. i’m happy we finally made some kind of decision. yay!
ps—happy birthday, mom! and happy belated birthday, dad! we love you!!
