I started out with one of the those carseats that clip in and out of the base and into a stroller. Rear facing, this thing was a nightmare in my two door car... LOL... then it became front facing. I bought a new seat that would last until he was 80lbs when he was around 18 months. It had a lot of room for adjustments and growth. I recently put that one in my hubby's truck and got a high back booster that uses the regular seat belts (Its not tethered to the car). He is 5 now and I wanted him to be able to get in and out on his own, since he is starting school soon and I am his transportation. It has to last quite a while, in the State of Ohio our child restraint laws are very strict and he will be using it for a long time!
