Hi mamas,

I posted this in another group, but i really need to find an answer.

I just bought the GRACO Nautilus. My problem is though, that reading through the Manual, there is no instruction on setting it up for RF.My DS is only 7 months old, and i dont want him FF until at least his 1st B-day.


Can it go RF? Or DOES IT HAVE to be FF? Does anyone on here have this car seat? and if so, do you have it RF or FF?

** Hello again, I ended up buying the evenflo triumph advance. I was going for the Myride, but it was at the same price, and the Evenflo had a few more options that i leaned towards. I also didnt return the Nautilus, my DH wants to keep it, for the other car, once we do decide to FF, which will be to probably 18 months or so**

THANKS TO EVERYONE AND THEIR ADVICE :D

the Graco Nautilus is a Forward Facing only seat. It should not be used until at the minimum 1 year and 20 lbs I would take the nautilus back and get a Graco MyRide 65. Also check out the carseat group and they can help you .http://www.cafemom.com/group/5739

I googled your car-seat and I couldnt find anything about it Rear Facing... The only advice I can give you is to try to return it, for one that will RF. Honestly thats what I would do - no one in the world could pay me enough money to FF my  kid at 7 months. With that said I'll have to add we did extended RF until she was 18 months.
