My Ride 65 or Nautilus?

I'm out on the market, but don't know which car seat to get. I'm seriously leaning towards the Nautilus, because you can take it down to boosters when the kid grows out of. But are there any benifits to the My Ride 65 over the Nautilus?

  • I've got the Nautilis and it was because in a couple years I won't have to buy a new seat for him when he grow out of this one.

  • Why are 3-in-1's bad? I thought this car seat was suppose to be one of the best.

  • cuz they usually expired before the child reaches the limit and they dont make good boosters. you learn alot from joining the car seat safety group.

  • At this age I would go w/ the Nautilus. It's a great forward facing seat that will harness your child until 65lbs. and can then be used as a booster. For a younger child (2 or under) I would go w/ the Myride65 for rearfacing.

  • if you are not going to be using the myride RFing there is really no reason to get that one over the nautilus.
