Sometimes Nova even wants to play in the car seat when we're not going anywhere. Thanks a bunch to Grandma Rowell for buying it for her. She also has a Graco 4Ever (which is super awesome), but the SnugRide is more portable, whereas the 4Ever generally stays put since it can't latch into the stroller. We use both though, depending on what's going on. The 4Ever can be used all the way throughout her childhood, as it converts into a forward-facing car seat, as well as a high back booster and a bigger child booster.
