I’d heard about the Radian 80 Convertible Car Seat ($249) by Sunshine Kids for a while and was lucky enough to test it out recently. You can use it rear-facing from 5- 33 pounds and forward facing until your child reaches 80 pounds. The Radian 80 was so easy to install (okay, my husband did it -We used the seat belt installation method). Several readers have commented that it is a good idea to get this seat’s installation checked by a certified car seat technician (which is a great idea). It folds flat (when not in use), which is terrific for traveling or storing this car seat. This is the first company to make a folding car seat (and there is a padded strap you can get to make it easier for carrying). As any parent can tell you, carrying a bulky car seat across an airport is not fun. We used to balance ours on the stroller, while wearing or carrying our son. Imagine having one that you can fold up and balance on your luggage or even carry with a strap?
