  • Hi ,I have 3 year old triplets and I recomend the boulevard model over the Marathon- (we have both models ) The boulevard is much easier to adjust the shoulder harness straps as they grow vs the marathon- It's a dial that you just turn, it lets you get the perfect height vs. 4 slots - I hope that makes sense. They are both good car seats so wich ever you choose your son will be comfy and safe :)

  • I love the boulevard. We have 4 of them. Our youngest was rear facing until 18 months and our oldest still fits into his at 5. He is 42 inches and about 38 lbs.
    There are some great online stores where you can normally get free shipping or good deals on britax. Let me know if you need any help.
