Perfect Convertible Car Seat for the Honda Element.



A little update on the bean bean:

  • He got his first tooth about 10 days ago.
  • He can roll from front to back... and from back to front... meaning when I lay him on his blanket he ends up under the recliner in, like, 30 seconds flat.
  • He has discovered the mind-blowing bliss of his very! own! feet!
  • He sometimes sleeps for 9 hours straight at night!
  • Other times... not so much.
  • I'm thinking of starting him on solids in the next few days. (Iron fortified rice cereal mixed with breastmilk.) He hasn't seemed super interested up to this point, so we'll see how it goes.
  • His new Combi Zeus Turn car seat is AMAZING.


(A perfect solution for our Honda Element.)

  • The humidity in the air here is really, really helping his skin. (he has had eczema pretty bad since he was born.)
  • His most favorite thing in the whole world is Ezra.
  • He can finally retrieve and re-insert his own binky!
  • He's about 16.5 lbs, I think. When I wear him in the sling too long, my arm goes numb. hahaha! But... sad, too.
  • He's the coolest baby. Just... the coolest.

Why did he wait to do all his tricks AFTER leaving New Harmony? I am insanely jealous ...

Hey there! We have an Element here in Los Angeles and it's almost impossible to deal with a car seat...the Zeus Turn looks absolutely perfect for those dang suicide doors and tight parking spaces. How has it been working out for you? Any gripes or complaints?

This car seat has been the PERFECT fit for our family and our family car. I have no gripes or complaints at all! I can't imagine trying to have any other type of car seat in an Element... it would be impossible!!

Hi Emery, thanks for this post its really helpful for my research because I own an element. Just wondering if you are still using the car seat 1 year later and how you like it. I have a 5 month old and am in the same predicament. Also, can you turn the seat with the baby in it? Thanks, Susan
