That seat has a really short shell... I would go in a different direction. What is your budget?

 He is FF. I'm not sure how much I can afford so I'm trying to aim for $75 or less. I gotta get the gas back on so I can cook and do baths and then replace the seat if I have enough.

I hate having to choose what's more important :(

I know this is over your budget but it will be the last seat you buy him, and it's the best one for him, he will be able to be harnessed for a long long time which is so very ideal.

you should contact safe kids.  They can (most of the time) help you get a new carseat for a small donation (here it is 20$) there website is http://www.safekids.org/in-your-area/ all you need to do is call them and find out when they are doing this again.  They will help you get one that is age and weight appropriate.

The ComfortSport is outgrown almost immediately.  it has a short shell.

I definitely agree here! If you can stretch your budget you really wont ever have to buy him another carseat if you get this one!

 I did that. They said they weren't able to help me right but would be happy to inspect once I got one :(

I was in an accident so this is not an expense I planned on. My insurance won't cover the seat because they say it's not needed but the carseat company (and just about everyone else) is saying it is.

 I saw this at the store and love it but I doubt I can stretch it that far :( I would love to get one for my 6 month old that I have in a Scenera (which feels way too flimsy for my comfort but I gotta do 1 seat at a time.)
