  • I think that the Cosco Scenera would be the best option. It rear faces to 35 lbs, and with her weight now, I think it would easily last another year. And rear facing, with her being 34 inches, I think she would have 3-4 inches to grow rear facing, depending on her torso height of coarse.
    My son is able to fit rear facing in a Scenera and he is 35 inches tall and he has at least 3 inches of shell above his head still. The seat has a very tall shell!
    The seat is only about $50 and you can find it cheaper online sometimes.

  • I agree, Cosco Scenera sounds like what you need. We have one and I like it pretty well. It has a 5 point adjustable harness, goes up to 35 rear and 40 front. DD is about 30 inches and still has plenty of space at the top to grow into, plus two more shoulder harness positions. It also has the LATCH straps if your car has the LATCH system.
