  • You might contact the dealer for your make of car and see if they have any recommendations for your vehicle. Some carseats work better than others in different cars.

    You can also check Consumer Reports for ratings.

    It's been a lot of years for us with car seats, but we STARTED with a Graco "big boy" type that went to 35 pounds and never owned an infant carrier seat. We were quite happy with the brand.

  • Make sure you leave him rear facing for as long as possible. The legal age is forward face is ONE year and 20 pounds, but studies have proven it to be safer if you keep them rear facing until the car seat maxium. I suggest the Graco MyRide 65.
