What is the best car seat to get for my son when he outgrows his infant carrier?

My son is about ready for a regular car seat. My daughter has a 3 in-one convertible car seat that can be used as a booster. We've hated the way the 5 point harness latches together since we got it. Can someone recommend a good car seat that latches easily? What car seat do you use?

  • I would Highly recommend The Graco ComfortSport. It is very padded with EPS and comfy, My DD Loves her.. She is unhappy in the other seats we own..It cost anywhere from $60.00 (at biglots) To $100.00 (At target) Comes in many different colors and designs..also very easy to adjust the straps and rates very high in crash test ratings. It is a very nice seat!

  • I too also highly recommend the graco comfort-sport. We recently purchased the cutest pink one from and were so pleased and impressed with it, you wouldn't believe the amount of cushion it has. She loves it too!!! good luck

  • any one that is convertible.... in the state of TN a baby has to be rear facing until 12mths old.... so my DD is only 6mths & about to outgrow the carrier length wise.... we are getting on that is upright, but can be forward or rear facing... the one that I looked at has 2 levels of how it sits (one completely upright & one slightly reclined).... she will be rear facing, slightly reclined until i can legally face her forward.

  • We have the Britax Marathon and we LOVE it. It's very easy to latch, the straps never tangle, and it's comfy for my daughter. She loves riding in it!!
