I use a myride 65. It is bulky but I love the rf until 40lbs.  My 16 month is still on the first slot because he is short  And he only weighs 19lbs.

I recently purchased a Graco Size4Me for my youngest, and I've never been so in love with a car seat. It was the easiest install and adjustment ever. And it'll handle a much taller kid than our older Graco seats, so I'm happy!

 My 2nd to the youngest is in a Safety 1st Alpha omega Elite, I highly suggest DON'T use it. It is a bitch to put in the car correctly rear facing and his head flops  forward when he sleeps. Plus I have heard it makes a terrible booster.

We have these too. DH likes them, I don't. We had to buy a different HBB for my oldest because he outgrew the seat (height).

When DS2 is big enough for a convertible I'm not sure which one we are getting yet. DH wants to reuse, but I feel like a kid deserves a new seat.

I have the safety 1st Cinderella car seat & stroller...not that thrilled with it.

POINT TO NOTE: NEVER put anything bulky (like snow suits, buntings, jackets) inside the straps with your baby/toddler!!! It can cause the straps to be too loose, and the child can be injured in an accident!

 My husband bought it and he likes it also, I don't. I want to get him a new seat but don't know which one yet. My youngest is still  in an infant seat, he is 13 months old, and weighs 17lb's and he still has a good inch to go before he out grows it. I don't know which one we are going to get for him once he outgrows the infant seat. He has cerebral palsy and is still pretty floppy so I need something that can rear face for a very long time in weight and height, and doesn't have to much of an angle, he doesn't have very good muscle control.

My 3.5 year old is in the Britax Advocate CS and my 14 month old is in the Britax Pavillion G3.

I don't have any cons. They're easy to install, tether rear facing, and are very easy to adjust.
