Decisions, Decisions

I can't make up my mind...help me choose Claira's next carseat.

Elsie has this one:



The seat is great, safety wise, and I love the colors though they don't really hide the inevitable toddler mess that carseats endure.

Here are the seats I'm look at for Claira. They're all Britax Marathons, and I think they're all really cute...hence my lack of decision making.

Ashley Floral ($239): This seat matches the yellow fabric on Elsie's seat, but I'm a little nervous that the whole seat is yellow, and that's definitely the more problematic fabric on Elsie's seat mess wise.



Olivia ($239): This is cute and has the same color scheme as Elsie's seat...the majority of it is still yellow though like Elsie's.



Sunburst ($299): I can't seem to find this pattern on sale anywhere, but I think it's cute. It has some of the same colors as Elsie's seat, but it doesn't match as well as the other seats. I think it would hold up against toddler messes better, but it is more expensive than the others.



I really think I might need to pull Elsie's seat out of the car so I can wash the cover before I make a decision. If it washes well, then I'll probably just go with the seat that matches exactly...ugh! Help me decide!

I'm not a lot of help - you can't go wrong b/c they are all so cute! We have plain old black carseats ... boring!!!

I had no idea carseats could be so cute!! I love the one you have for Elsie. The next 2 are probably my favorites. You can't go wrong with any of them though.
