We picked up the Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 seat. I fell in love with it. We could use it as a car seat till 80 lbs and then a booster till 100 lbs. We put it together and then I realized that it didn't have a rear-facing option. D'oh! I never even thought to check because you can begin using at 20lbs and I figured that it must have the option. Wrong.
This seat feels like a tank-I loved it.
I know the whole rear-facing issue is hotly debated but, for me, I insist that even though he surpassed 20 lbs long ago, he be rear-facing till at least 1 year. He's not even 9 months old.
So back to the store. We wound up with the Graco MyRide 65. Apparently, we have a thing for Graco. Overall, the seat is okay. We can only use it until 65 lbs at which time we'll need to upgrade to a booster, but I can live with that.
It's got 2(!) cupholders. Somehow, I doubt my 8 month-old will be double-fisting sippy cups.
D's going to install it in the Subaru tonight so that Little Bit can ride in style to Houston tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.
