  • They have some good ones at walmart that are under 100. They even sell ones i can fit my butt into and i gota say they were pretty comfy (as long as your legs don't touch the floor LOL!) Here are a few. And there's only a 97 cent shipping charge to home!

    check those ones out! I own two of the cheapest girly ones for my girls. And they love them. I've also taken my youngest on a 36 hour car trip in the Cosco Scenera, and sh did really well!

  • You can go with the safety first model. Avoid Graco. Though if you upped yout budget youcould get a True Fit (which is a better seat) for under 160 dollars.

  • I had an Alpha Omega Elite and it wasn't great. The FF harness weight only goes up to 40lbs. I've heard good things about the Cosco Serena. If you cold stretch your budget a little more, the Graco Myride 65 is really nice. I just bought it for DD and it was on sale at Walmart for $145.

  • If you can go up to around $130-$160, I would get one of the following: First Years True Fit, Graco Myride 65, Evenflo Triumph Advance. They all go up to 65lbs. and will last until your child is old enough for a booster. If you really need to stay under 100, get either the Cosco Scenera, or the Safety 1st Uptown/Avenue. These only go up to 40lbs. but if your child outgrows them before they are old enough for a booster you can get another seat at that time.

  • my Primary Carseat is the true fit and HE LOVES IT but I have a daycare and I trnsport kids on occassion that I have to get seats for and I figured it would be a good time to get a second seat for my son at the same time for my husbands truck since he won't ever take my care any where and moving the seat we have is a pain but because I have to buy Two seats I have to keep the money part down I will sure check out the ones you suggested THANKS
