Not sure how much DS weighs, but imagine this summer he'll be outgrowing his car seat and need a booster seat. The high back boosters look oh so much safer to me IMO.
Was so easy when I purchased his infant car seats. I knew exactly what I wanted. The carrier kind I wanted one that would hold up to 35 pounds to get him thru the winter without having to battle with a snow suit. When he turned one, I picked a Triumph 'cuz it looked oh so comfy with all that padding and would recline.
I'm just at a total loss as to what I should get him. Britax has gotten some good reviews -- those run about $80-100. Graco has some similar looking ones with cup holders. Heck, I even saw one at target that had a READING light!
