Re: car seat for 3-4 year old

  • I honestly don't know the brand name of it but its one of the booster kind you just have to sit it in the car and then use the shoulder straps to belt her in.  I just put her in this kind about 3-4 months ago.  If it weren't for her size (shes about 3 ft 7 and weighs about 50 lbs) I probably would have left her in an actual car seat a little longer.
  • My DS just turned 3. He is still rear facing in a Diono Radian RXT. Worth every penny. We'll never have to buy another seat.

  • DD1 turned 3 today and has been using a Graco Nautilus since we turned her FFing a few months ago. It harnesses to 65lbs and can then be a high back or backless booster.

  • DD is in a Britax Frontier in my car and a Graco Nautilis in DH's truck. The Graco is OK but I much prefer the Britax.

  • My 2.5 yo is rear facing in a Graco MySize 70 or Diono Radian. She will probably make it to 3 yo in the Radian before we have to turn her. She should make it to close to 4 yo in the MySize before we have to turn that. (She's 32 lbs and 38" right now.) Both convertibles will last until she's at least 5 yo. Then if she's ready, she'll move to a high back booster.

  • My 5 yr old is in a Britax Frontier in our main car.  We have a Graco Nautilus in our other car.  He's still in a 5pt harness in both.

  • We use an Evenflo Symphony for both kids (they're 3 & almost 5).  DD uses it as a booster but DS is still in the harness

    This! We have both too and we prefer the britax. It's just an easier seat to use.

  • We have an Evenflo Triumph is both cars.

    I think we can use it until 50 or 65 lbs - DD is barely 35 lbs now, so we will probaly be using it for another 2 years.

  • My 5 year old is in an older graco nautilus and my 3 year old is in the new graco Argos . I'm really happy with them. My five year old will continue to be in her five point harness till she reaches the height limit which by my measurements she has 2 1/2 inches left so at least a year maybe two. She does use a hog back booster for her grandparents car for the very short trips only because they cannot install a normal seat properly so its safer for her .
  • DS will be 3 in a month and he is still RFing in a Britax Roundabout. We will keep  him in it until #2 needs it and then likely switch to a combo seat like the Nautilus or a Radian that converts from a 5 point harness to a booster.

  • My DD was in her convertible RFing until she turned 4 and then we switched to Graco Nautilus (with the 5-point harness) - it was her big birthday gift from us.
  • 3 yo DD is in a 5 pt. Graco Nautilus.
