Need Carseat Help!

My DD is 18 months, 33 3/4 in tall, and 33 lbs. I have a Graco Comfortsport Convertable carseat. Its only rated to 40 in and 40 lbs. My pedi and I believe that she may reach the weight and height limit by the time she is 2. My problem is my budget, I need a convertable carseat that has a higher weight and height limit but I need one that is only around $100. Any of you moms have one or heard of one that would work?

  • I would not get the Titan or the Alpha Omega, because you can get the new Graco Natualis which would be a better "bang for your buck" since it would last longer. They are around $130 at Walmart so you may need to save up for a little bit to get one, but it has nice tall top slots, harnesses to 65lbs., and then becomes a good booster later on.
