I asked a question about car seats earlier before my dh and I went shopping for a new one for our 9modd who out grew her infant one. Both responses I got said not to get a 3-in-1 seat. One said because the weight limits aren"t very high. Well we just got back and we did get a 3 in 1 seat and the weight limit is up to 100 lbs! so far we really like it. It's the Evenflo Symphony 65. It's up to 35lbs rear facing, 65 front facing, and 100 booster. But why would they say 3-in-1 car seats are no good? Are they really junk? Why?Answer Question

They are not necessarily "junk" but typically they are just not the best seats that you can buy for the amount of money you spend. They will not be 'the last seat you ever need' as they advertise they are. Seats are outgrown by height when either the child's shoulders go above the top set of slots, or their ears go over the tops of the shell... so many kids will outgrow the seat by height before they hit the max weight limit. Also, almost all 3-in-1 seats make really horrible boosters so you should think about buying a good dedicated high back booster when the time comes (not until at least 4 and 40lbs. although age 5/6 is better).
