Carseat help

So we have the Britax Advocate and so far both my H and I hate it. It's so big and its so hard to get Ava in and out of it. It's a pain to move it from car to car too.

So I'm looking for another seat that we can us in the other vehicle. Something that is also a convertible and can be rear facing, and something not too bulky so we can take it in and out of the car. Also something way cheaper than the Britax. We won't be using it very often. Any suggestions?

  • We have the graco head wise 70 from Target. Its easy to install, so I would assume its easy to go from car to car. Rear facing it is anyways. I don't have another seat to compare it to if its bulky or not tho. I'm happy with it.

  • We have a britax pavilion and it is a pain as well. On vacation our car rental had a cheap no frills graco that was sooo easy to install. It looked like crap but she really liked it. I am not sure exactly which graco it was, but it was probably one of their cheaper models.

  • I don't know how much yours was but we have a Maxi Cosi and I really do love it. It is super easy to install and take in-take out. And it is really comfy (or so it seems. My big arse obviously doesn't fit). DD never feels sweaty or hot and my car doesn't have tinted windows. Mine came from Albee Baby and I got a $50 gift card to use on their site, making the seat $250. It goes up to 70 pounds.

  • We have a britax pavillion and a marathon. Pavillion is the more expensive one and it is harder to install and LO hates it. The marathon retails for around 200 but you should be able to find it for 150 with coupons or sales.
