Family is in same dilemma we have a Traverse which is nice but with 4 kids cargo space is tight in the car and hard to have friends ride with kids. We are now looking at the Odyssey and Siena due to 8 passenger configuration, wish the T&C had 8 seats. Wife is now coming around that the mini-van might be more practical due to extra space and room for ...

The minivan, in my opinion (Joe), is the way to go. I agree it is not the sporty vehicle we aspire to drive but when it comes to hauling (four) kids around, it is the easiest, most convenient, comfortable way to go. I recommend the Toyota Sienna with seating for 8. It has three removable seats in the middle so you can remove any of them for the ease of ...

There really is no substitute for taking the entire family, including rear-facing car seat, for test drives. Go to a crowded parking lot, park with cars on both sides, then get everyone out and back in. Think about groceries. Think about vacations. Think about if a friend or relative comes with you. Try all the seats yourself, because your 12 year-old ...

We had both an Odyssey and a Pilot at the same time. I have to say, the Pilot was my dream car, but the back seat was only functional, i.e. not comfortable for long trips. Also, less room for said long trips. But the 4WD in the winter, the towing capacity, the visibility, etc., are a lovely memory. The Odyssey was a much more comfortable car to travel ...

Although this is somewhat opinion-based as there are both minivans and SUVs which fit the bill, the advantages of the minivan over the SUV are: they are purpose built people carriers so they have features like sliding doors and removable and re-configurable seats that SUVs don't have, or at least not to the same level they are generally cheaper to own, ...

Saftey First has a search engine here. In general, one other option is to go to Amazon, where if you can find the exact same item, you may be able to get the manual from there. In your case I didn't find it, however.

We have a neck pillow with no padding at the back, just a length of fabric holding two kidney-shaped pillows together. It worked so well for the toddler I ended up buying a bunch more, so the whole family has their own to use as travel pillows. I'll post a picture later. It was made by a local SAHM-business and we got it years ago, but similar things may ...

We also have this problem. It helps a bit if the child seat allows a bit of recline, and if it has an impact shield aka a 'wedge' (instead of a harness) then that means that if the seat is in the upright position then the child can sleep leaning forwards on the shield. We have this type here: ...
