Laya’s Carseat Saga

June 23, 2011 § 10 Comments

Laya hated the carseat with passion. Unfortunately it is the law in Australia so we had no choice but to be subjected to her WAILING every time she is strapped to one while we were there.

She can go on crying, screaming for hours till she falls asleep, and then wakes up to continue her crying, screaming session. Kakaawa actually but no choice eh šŸ˜¦

But smart hubby also thinks she wont cry if I am not there… surprise, surprise! She really didn’t! At least not a lot. (Don’t you hate it when hubby is always right?!)

with her favorite cousin Josh *so sweet noh?*

with her mate Gabe (Gabe lent us his carseat while we were there, thanks Gabe!)

Since we have this plan of going on a road trip to Melbourne to see the Great Ocean Road *dream dream* on our next visit, we figured we need to get Laya used to a carseat already.

Months before our Oz Trip we were actually scouting for carseats.Ā  I have seen my share, either they are too expensive or not to my liking so we never really found one I liked. Until Laya tried Charmaine’s Recaro carseat and was quite comfy in her 10 minute ride from Starbucks Fort to Serendra.

I wanted that one so I convinced hubby to check out the carseats. Recaro, being a popular brand when we were growing up, he liked it too. Price is also well within our budget, so I too am happy.

Here she is in her own carseat. She cried the first time and didn’t na afterwards, at least not because of the carseat now,Ā  when she does, which is rare, mostly because she is bored, sleepy or hungry.

Operation Carseat is now officially a SUCCESS. My baby is a first world baby now!

Discovery: We are happy with our Recaro Carseat, got it for P12,000, cushion is all over and is very soft. I tried those in the mall usually those that are this soft goes at more than P18,000-P35,000. Recaro is sold at Excellar Enterprises located at 73 N. Roxas corner Banawe Streets, Quezon City (across Serenitea). Phone numbers: 712-5373 to 74, 712-5379 to 80, 731-1224 to 25.

*disclosure (haha feeling blogger) we bought our carseat, and we do not have anything to do with the owners.

    Yohoo! First world Laya! šŸ™‚ Congratulations on mastering the art and cuteness of being in a car seat! šŸ™‚

  • cai says:

    Wow 12k lang for the carseat? We also called that shop but it’s in the 20k range. Anung model yan? We’re looking for one too but the ones available in the mall have CRAZY prices! We want Recaro din!

    • BenzRana says:

      Cai, ask for this one it’s called Signo, made in China as with all US brand na carseat. Madami sila doon made in Europe and made in Japan kaso super mahal na mas younger pa max age capacity šŸ™‚ This one is actually P15,000 but on sale at 20% kaya P12,000 na lang, dami pang color choices.
      Hay the nice ones in the mall have crazy prizes talaga make you not want to buy one na lang.

  • Jenny says:

    congrats benz!! so cheaper to get the recaro straight from excellar than malls? i will tell my sister.

    • BenzRana says:

      Jenny, walang Recaro sa Mall. If they sell daw sa mall the price will go up by 40% kasi mall gets a cut diba? Si Charmaine she got it at P15,000, may sale nung pumunta kami and I assume till now less 20%.

  • NICE! good job mimma and didda!

  • kendznilui says:
