Carseats for 13 month old girls

I am looking at getting a second carseat. Right now we have one that Cafemom sent us and I love it. It's the First Years True Fit Convertible carseat. I was looking at getting another BUT I was wondering what everyone else would recommend. I am HUGE on reviews so I read the reviews to everything. I would really like to stay under $100 but willing to spend under $200.

  • We have the Cosco convertible from walmart right now but are looking into the Cosco 5 point harness seat. It hold from 22 to 80 pounds. Either that one (it's 50 bucks) or the Safety 1st one (it's about 80 bucks).

  • I found some Britax carseats on Ebay for under $200. I hear those are the best and that's probably what we will end up with for DD in a couple of months here.. I wish CM had sent me a carseat.. that would have been the best influencer present EVER

  • In my jeep i have a Alpha omega, but for a 2nd carseat we have the graco comfort sport (ours is pink) I bought it for $35 on clearnace at target. My mom also has the graco comfort sport in her Van for Jacie.

  • Be careful buying carseats in advance for when your kids get older. Carseats expire! Not many people know that so I just wanted to throw it out there.

    I also have the true fit for my son. I love it! If I was you, I would buy another one of those. Or, depending on your daughter's weight you could go with the cosco scenera but it only harnesses to 40 lbs.

    You can join the Carseat Safety group here on cafemom and they would recommend a great carseat for your budget based on your child's weight and height.

  • I would definitely avoid the Graco Comfortsport. It has the shortest shell and lowest harness slots, which means it is outgrown by the average child at around 2.5-3 years old. For $90, you can get a seat that will last you at least a year longer, the Safety First Uptown/Avenue.

    How big is your daughter, and do you plan on rear-facing longer than 1 year and 20lbs?
