  • Look into the convertibles that go up to 50-60 pounds, then you won't ever have to buy her another car seat!

  • I have an eddie bauer one, it cost bout 110 but it is a three in one. It reaf faces until 35lbs and front face until 50lbs and is a booster until 80lbs so I will have it a long time. I actually have two of them, one in each car because we love it so much. Only thing is there isn't too much cusion but we just added stuff for my daughter.

  • I'd suggest a Radian, or a Britax, if you can afford it because they both have high RF and FF limits. If not, I'd go with the Scenera, which was mentioned before, RF to 35, FF to 40, and at that time, I'd get a Graco Nautilus, a FF only seat, harness to 65, and boosters to 100.
