Right now I have a Graco Snugride and on the website it says that the height limit for it is 26 inches and the weight limit is like 20lbs. I'm not sure how long or how tall my son is now (4 months) but at 2 months he was 13.5 lbs and 25 inches. I'm considering getting the Costco Scenera but I'm wondering if it's a good idea because he can't sit up alone yet and I don't want him to be flopped over in the seat. Suggestions?Answer Question
You can either opt to get a car seat that reclines or you can just leave him in the infant seat. My 10 month old is still in the infant seat because I find that it has more of a recline than any of the toddler seats. Mine does have a higher weight limit but I'm sure he will exceed it soon. I use it because the chances of getting hit in the rear are far greater than front on. If hit behind the baby's head will fly backwards and possibly be injured if in a straight up toddler car seat. You have to pick and choose.

The height limit is a rough guide. As long as your child has one inch of hard shell above their head, they are not too tall for the seat. A Scenera is a good buy, and will rear face to 35 lbs, but will only forward face to 40, at which time, you'd probably want to invest in another seat that harnesses a bit longer. (if you plan to EH, which I'd recommend, since at 40 lbs most kids are not ready for a booster) I always recommend the True Fit, which runs a bit under $200, RF to 35 and FF to 65. It's cushy, and has a deep seat, which helps accommodate long legs. Feel free to ask any ?'s you might have.
