Ok so I bought a Cosco car seat at Target for like 44.00. I bought it for the sitters car (Reese is in her car once a week for 15 minutes. I could NOT justify spending another 309.00 in a seat. Anway, I wanted to install it in my car to make sure it would be ok and I could not for the life of me get a tight install--used LATCH. I have the Chicco keyfit and a BLVD and Roundabout. Am I just used to the install on these seats being so rock solid? I installed it behind the driver seat--put my knee in it to tighten the LATCH. I did not try the seat belt. Any tips would be appreciated. Is this a complaint on this seat. I'm a bit irritated!!!

Ok I tried the seatbelt and it appears to work a little better. It still moves from side to side but not more than an inch (which I read was ok). Gosh, is this really ok if it moves like that? How annoying! My other seats do NOT do that and they recline more. O'well, as long as sweet lips is safe that is all I care about. What do you think? Is it ok to move a bit? Sorry to ask so many questions. I might make an appoitment to get it checked. TIA!
