What carseat does your toddler have?

We need another carseat to put in my SO's four seat truck. I plan to put the car seat he has now in the truck and the new one in my car since he rides in my car more. Anyway, he has a Cosco Scenera and I like it but since he's so tall, I'm afraid it won't adjust to his height. I plan to rear face him until he's a little older. What would your reccommend?

  • We have a Radian 80 by sunshine kids. They are on the expensive side but they are small in width but have amazing safety features. We have 2 actually. We bought one and her grandma bought the other.

  • My daughter currently has a Graco Comfort Sport, but we're saving to get her the Sunshine kids Radian XT.

  • we also have a nautilus and we love it but it is front facing only so if you are planning on rear facing for longer then this might not be the car seat for you. . . However, if you do consider it I like it because the height adjusts quite a bit and it goes up to 65lbs in the 5 point harness and 100lbs as a booster. . . GL
