    Default Carseat Help

    So we are in need of a new carseat for our almost 3.5 yr old. I need help figuring out which one is best for her. She is tall, around 38" and 38.5lbs, so obviously I want it to be able to fit her for a while before she becomes too tall. I would also like one that can eventually become a booster since she won't be in a 5 point harness forever. The insurance company just said it had to be comparable, so I am unsure what that means? The one she is in is an Eddie Bauer we had bought for our first daughter over 5 yrs ago.
    Thanks!

    I'd check out this link:

    Personally, if your are trying to keep the price point around the same as whatever eddie bauer I'd probably look towards the Graco Nautilus or SecureKid. Evenflo also just had the Evolve on sale for $170 at TRU as well. The Frontier would be lovely (and last forever and a day) but it is likely overkill.

    What vehicle do you drive?

    We drive a Dodge Caravan. I was going to maybe go with the Frontier, it was the one that caught my eye on the Toys R Us website. Our 1 yr old is in a Britax Marathon and we love it. I just want something that she won't get too tall for too soon, and last until a booster.
