  • Graco is pretty good. However, I have to recommend Britax. Go to babiesrus.com and read the reviews for Britax car seats. I came across several people who left reviews stating they had been in a wreck that nearly killed them, totaled their car, and put them in the hosp. for weeks, their child however, didnt even have a mark on them from the car seat straps. I went with Graco for a baby carrier at first... then switched to Britax Convertible car seats. The regent and frontier made by Britax also harnesses up to 80 lbs. Most car seats harness up to 40, 65 at most. My 4 year old is 42 lbs... and at that age, she still needs a harness. Its worth the extra money to get a car seat that will keep your child safer for that much longer. Do some research on them...

  • Graco is a good brand. I was always confident in their products.

    As far as car seats go...the safest one is one in which the baby fits properly and which fits properly in your vehicle. Car seats HELP keep your child safe. They are not a guarantee.

    I have a friend who was in an accident. She was driving and broke her collar bone. Her 6 year old nephew was harnessed in a car seat. He was killed. Her daughter was rear facing in the middle of the vehicle. She now has brain damage,part of her skull is missing, she has a staph infection in the gortex protecting her frontal lobes, and will be globally delayed.

    They were both buckled in correctly, the seats were installed correctly. The 6 year old boy...in a Britax. There are some things a car seat cannot prevent.

  • Graco is great. I have a mix of evenflo, graco and costco products and all work well. As with any car seat, the key is to get the seat installed properly and make sure baby is strapped in correctly. Even the most expensive car seat is useless if not used properly.
