Thank you for supporting Copy Cat Chic.
Okay so, I need some feedback from all of you. It’s almost time to do the old switcheroo from an infant seat (we use this one) to a convertible. Arden is currently rear-facing in a Maxi Cosi Pria 70 and while she has no issues with it and we like it to…I’m seriously considering the Foonf.
We really do like our Pria carseat, but the Foonf has some amazing attributes. It’s eco-friendly because the seat can be fully recycled and there are no harmful flame retardants added to the fabric. LOVE that. I also love it’s narrow footprint, the Pria is pretty substantial in our car right now. Let’s not forget to mention the fact that it has an anti-rebound bar. I don’t know why more seats don’t have that. Oh and the crypton fabric is supposed to be divine…water beads right off of it. One thing I saw in reviews though was that some thought it was uncomfortable and hard. So I’m not too sure on that score. The major downfall with this seat? It’s almost double the price of the Pria. So that’s where I’m stuck. Is this seat really worth the extra $200?
The Pria has served us well for the past two years. Arden thinks it’s comfy and the cup holder comes in so handy! She wasn’t a fan of the infant seat, but as soon as we moved her to this one she was a happy camper. The black part of the seat is removable for cleaning. I usually throw it in the washer on delicate and then hang dry it. It dries super fast. The gray head rest fabric is spot clean though. And as you can see it’s right where the head (aka mouth) is, so the fact that it can’t be removed and cleaned is not ideal. Also the headrest adjusts and I’ve found our’s is hard to get locked in place. I’m not sure if that’s just our seat or across the board though. Pulling the straps out and making them looser can be a pain and sometimes (not often) the straps get twisted around in the buckles, which can be a little annoying, but definitely not a make or break.
What do you guys think? Is the splurge worth it for the Foonf? How many of you have it and love/hate it? What about the Pria? Any of you have experience with both seats and can help me out?

The Mr took one look at this picture and said “I can’t believe you made him wear that hat.”. What? It’s cute! Right? Right? 😉
The little Mr. Man was baptized this past Sunday. Here he is in his little white short suit. He actually wore a family gown, but we got this for him to wear afterwards. But he never actually got to wear it, we got home and he slept through his whole party 🙂
