My charge is getting close to needing the next size seat. She is in a carrier car seat now. What would you suggest for a seat that can do both rear and forward facing and can last to at least 40 pounds?
I suggest you look at my post http://carseatnanny.blogspot.com/2008/11/carseat-likes-and-dislikes.html For convertible seats. A convertible seat is one that will go rear facing and forward facing. It'll tell you my likes/dislikes of the various seats. Different features are important to different people. There are nice seats in all different price ranges as well.
