Carseat help...

My son is 19 moths and weighs 35-ish lbs. He is in a forward facing carseat now that only goes up to 40lbs. I am trying to find a cheap 5 pt harness carseat that will hold up to 65+lbs? Any help? The ones I have seen are over $150 and I can not afford that.  I called my highway patrol for help and they were non at all, kept trying to tell me he needed to be in a high back booster at 40lbs. Sorry I am not putting my 19 month old in a seatbelt!


Any way any help would be great! What do you use?!?! Pictures would be great also!

This is an awesome one, but it's $145

My friend uses this one and she loves it.  It's $90

the nautilis is your best bet but it's too much. the second seat only harnesses to 40 pounds I believe then has to be used as a booster so that won't do you any good.

There's also the Apex which is around 85 dollars I believe but you have to have high headrests in your car in order to use it.
