  • We have an evenflo symphony seat. Love them! They have the latch system so they are easy to put in and pull out.

  • Do you want to erf or ff? The safety first complete air is a pretty good seat for ERF with 18" top harness slots and up to 40 lbs. It forward faces to 65lbs after. It is $179 at babies r us. You may want to check out the car seat safety group. They would be able to help you better than I could. Best of luck though. I hope you find something that works well for you.

  • What is best is the one that has the highest weight and height limit for rear facing and later forward facing that you can afford and fits properly in YOUR car and that YOU can install correctly. Go to Toys r us or Babies r us and ask to try the floor model in your car and they will let you take it out and see how it fits and how easy it is for YOU to install in YOUR car.

  • There is a Car Seat Safety Group on CM that can help you. They helped me pick out mine!  I received a lot of feedback on different seats.
