It depends on how much you want to spend- we were willing to spend $250 on a car seat (and we are by NO means rich, there are just certain things we will splurge on). We have an Eddie Bauer and we love it- it's soft and has a great safety rating. I've heard Britax is really good as well. Go to sites such as Target.com & babiesrus.com and read the safety ratings on all the car seats in your budget- then read all the comments from everyone who's actually purchased that car seat. It's a little time-consuming but so worth it.
