We are off soon on our first family vacation to Hawaii and one of the purchases I made is the Lily Gold Sit 'N Stroll 5 in 1 Car Seat & Stroller ($243.51 on Amazon). The thought of lugging Chloe at 15 months through the airport while carrying her large car seat or having her fidget and scream on my lap just didn't seem appealing to me. A friend and mom I trust, Nancy recommended it as she has been using it for traveling with her daughter for over a year. This is an FAA approved car seat that doubles as a travel stroller and a booster seat. You can wheel your little one into the airport and even down the airplane aisle to get him/her in their seat. Plus at only 22 pounds this whole thing is pretty light weight compared to carrying a regular car seat and stroller. The less crap I have to lug around the better. Sure it's a bit pricey but I figured we'll be traveling for the next few years and I hope to have another baby who can use this too. Seemed like a worthy investment!
The reviews for the Sit 'N Stroll on One Step Ahead definitely confirmed it all for me. I found the best price on Amazon because there is no sales tax and free shipping on this item. Woo!
I'll write up my own review of the product after we are back from vacation.
