Car seat dispute!

Please could anyone help settle an argument? I'm tearing my hair out here!

I'm about to buy a new BeSafe Izi Plus and want to get it in metallic melange (grey) because our other other car seat is black and although it washes well the colour does fade and worst of all in the summer the black seat gets almost too hot to touch. My OH thinks it won't make a difference getting a slightly lighter colour and that the grey will stain and look dirty all the time.

We've put off buying a flipping seat for ages now because we can't agree! Does anyone else have experience of these please so you can tell us who is right and which colour to buy?!

Thank you for your help!

Our car seats have been bright orange, blue, black and grey. They all washed well, especially the orange one, the black was the worst because it faded so much.

Just get the grey one, a bit of stain remover works wonders smile

Hi can anyone help? I want to buy some Tupperware. I like the green but I am worried the colour looks a bit like leaves. Should I play it safe and get blue?

REALLY?! You honestly have NOTHING better to talk about than a car seat? How does something this insignificant even become something to argue about? I'm at a loss.

Get the grey one, removing stains occasionally is easier that trying to keep a dark car seat the right temp for a baby over summer.

I just went a brought a suitable seat that for the child - that's it

Do you do this with every purchase? Must be exhausting.

Thank you for the serious responses, I appreciate it.

For everyone else that did at least give me a giggle. grin I have a wonderful life, thank you. We're not normally this indecisive, no.

Hope you at least got a kick out of your nasty comments and they made you feel better about yourselves. You think I have no life? You were the ones with nothing better to do than bitch about a stranger for no reason. confused

If you have a tall ish child don’t get it. Get the axi kid instead.

Can you make a cover for the summer? Just take a white cotton sheet and cut out holes for the straps. That should keep it cooler.

I'd go for grey, black never looks clean and car seats always end up covered in mess even with all the goodwill in the world.

car seats are supposed to be stained and manky

Thank you. My little ones are quite short like me unfortunately so it'll be ok. We already have another BeSafe that seems to be fine. Thank you though Changer! I did look at that one.

Great idea thank you Nancy! My sewing skills are non existent but I think I might give it a try anyway. grin

Thank you Coffee and Purple, I totally agree !!grin
