  • i went to Wal Mart and got my daughter the Cosco convertible seat. It's still more the shape of a car seat than a bigger booster seat and keeps baby more comfy. It's also under $45 online or in store. I like it b/c my daughter saleep in the car a lot and it still keeps her head layed back a little as opposed to bigger seats like the booster seats where they sit straight up and their heads hang down when they fall asleep... this is the one i have for my 16 mo old, i got when she was 9 mo old

  • I have the costo alpha omega since it's a three in one. My mom uses the cosco serena (something like that. It's at Walmart for $50). It's just rear facing and forward facing. It works great. I just recommend getting those strap protectors for the shoulders/neck. I think the previous poster has the one I'm talking about. Plus, by the time they get to a booster, you can get a cheap, light weight one you can move between cars or put aside int he garage until needed.

    For reviews, check the store websites and google it. The more reviews the better :)
