Anyone have Britax carseats?

We have a 3 uear old son who wieghs 32 pounds and we purchased a Britax Roundabout when he turned a year old.
Now we have a one year old baby who is just over 20 pounds. I looked up the Britax carseats and there are SO many that I am overwhelmed!
My friend told me that the Roundabout only goes up to 40 pounds... so I thought maybe I could give that one to the baby and get my 3 year old a different one... so which Britax model do you reccomend?
Also- if you have any other advice...I appreciate it!

  • I have two of the roundabout. By the time they are 40 lbs a high booster is usually fine. That's the transition we made.

  • I had a Boulevard and I really liked it. You could join the car seat group and get other suggestions. I know there are better seats out there.

  • I have the Britax Marathon and it goes to 65 lbs and we love it.

  • If you want one that lasts longer I'd suggest a Graco MY Ride. They are rear facing to 40 pounds and forward facing to 65 pounds. And they are cheaper yet still high safety rated. Good Luck!

  • Hi, for your three year old I would recommend the Britax Frontier! I really love this seat! It harnesses to 80lbs so it is SOOO worth the money!
