(I changed the tile cause apperntly nobody has a sense of humor today Calling sombody a car seat nazi is not a bad thing. I ment it as  they know thier shit)

 I really want to get this car seat for my son he will be 6 months on the 19th and is already growing out of his infant car seat,  he was 16 pounds on his 4 month check up so I know he's getting really close to the 20 pound limit on the car seat.  I have been doing alot of research and I keep coming back to this car seat. So what do you think.

 

For use in infant, toddler, and belt-positioning modes, the Alpha Omega Elite Convertible Car Seat has a weight range that will work for your little one from baby to youth.  It starts as a rear-facing car seat, converts to a forward-facing car seat and then transitions into a belt-positioning booster seat! In addition to the 3 modes of use, you'll also appreciate the superior comfort and added convenience features which make this an Elite™ car seat. Pivoting armrests make getting your little one in and out of the seat a breeze, and the 5-position padded head rest adjusts height in one easy step. The seat also includes a removable cup holder which is a great place to store a drink or snack.

  • 3 modes of use!
  • Rear-facing 5-35 lbs.
  • Forward-facing 22-50 lbs.
  • Belt-positioning booster 40-100 lbs.
  • 5-point harness with up-front adjustment fits children up to 50 lbs!
  • 5-position padded headrest adjusts with Quick-Fit™ harness 
  • QuickFit™ harness system adjusts harness height from front in one easy step!
  • Side Impact Protection
  • 3-position recline
  • Removable infant head insert
  • Pivoting armrests
  • Removable cup holder
  • LATCH equipped for easy installation

That's a crappy seat.  But really...when you are asking for help, you may want to lose the derogatory label.

ya calling people "Nazis" is only good for when you're making fun of them, not asking for help

FWIW...putting your 6 month old in a ff carseat is dumb, they don't have the neck muscles to prevent paralysis...my dd is 11 months, in a rf carseat and is 30 lbs

Agreed. Look into the Graco Myride 65.

 I HATE HATE HATE the myride 65. Its so bulky and wide, it will not fit in my car. Yes I have tried it. my friend has it and its good if you have a big car or a van. not a tiny one like mine were you need to fit two car seats in

I don't think that's what she meant at all. She said the baby is 16 lbs, and that extra 4-5 lbs can probably up to 6 months at this point to gain. I think it leads us to believe she's looking for a seat that will not only serve her needs now, but continue to serve her needs until the child is out of a booster entirely, at 10+ or so. Why else would she be considering one that is appropriate from 5-100 lbs?
