  • My DD outgrew her infant carseat before she turned 1. I got this one:

    So far I like it, we haven't had any problems or anything.

  • I fell in love with my Sunshine Kids Radian 80. The only down side is that it's very heavy. It's strong, sturdy, comfy, safe, RFs and harnesses for a very long time, and comes in cute designs. I have read that there are some better for extra tall kids though, ones that recline and go deep in for more space. I believe it was the Nautilus and/or TruFit.

  • The best thing to do is google convertible car seats. It will give you a better idea of the money you will spend vrs. the safety of the seat. For me the safety was more important and I wanted to get the best price. I researched for weeks. I ended up getting this one. I found it on a shopping site for a discount because of discontinuing colors. My DD and I both LOVE it.
    Just do a little research, your own knowledge is the best advise. Good luck!

  • There is a wide range of good seats in all price ranges... so starting from low to high...
    Cosco Scerena, Evenflo Triumph Advance, Graco MyRide65, First Years True Fit, any of the Britax convertibles
    If you go to Babies R Us you can see how your child fits in the seat and also they will let you try it in your car
