Since the girls are now over 29″ long, they are no longer under the height requirements for their infant car seats which means they need the bigger convertible seats. Unfortunately these seats are pretty expensive, starting at around $60, and we have two babies. Fortunately, since we are on government assistance (WIC, Medicaid(girls), and Food Stamps) we qualify for the car seat assistance program. After some phone calls, I found out that a local fire department offered the program. So today I got a ride from the lovely Leanda, we went to lunch, and picked up some new car seats!
We went to the Fire Department! It was a first for all of us to be in a Fire Station! They inspected our old car seats, instructed us on the new ones, how they adjust, how to install, expiration dates, and answered our questions. They were super nice and friendly too! What happy people doing us this great service! Thank you men and women of the White River Township Fire Department! So we are now the proud owners of two new Evenflo Titan convertible car seats and we didn’t have to pay for them! What a blessing!
These sadly means the end of our easy to carry infant seats and bases. This means that now when people come and pick me up I have to install these bad boys into their car and make sure I uninstall them from our car the previous night! That should be a pain, but you gotta do what is the best for your babies right?
