Carseat ladies

DH just got home from deployment and he has been picking DD up early from daycare. I work there also, and as of right now, we are just switching cars. He takes my car home when he leaves with her, and then I just drive his home...but it is getting to be a hassle and a distraction in my classroom. 

I want to just buy another carseat for his car, but I don't want to spend a great deal of money on it.

I know the brand Cosco makes some that are right around $50 but I don't know how good they are.

Any suggestions please? We are looking to keep the price under $100. 


She is 16 months old, 19lbs and still rear facing so we are looking for a convertiable carseat, preferably that can rear face for quite a while. 


thanks in advance

I used one of those with my oldest. It worked fine for the price. You could possibly get a graco myride for around $120-130. It rear faces longer.

I would get a Scenera... Works great, safe, cheap and it's likely to last a good while. That is one of the seats I was suggested in the car seat group here on CM.
