Allyson was born February 23, 2009. We purchased the Britax Boulevard carseat for her. We love it. It seems very comfortable for her, it's easy to adjust, as well as get in and out of the car. It's a little bigger than some, so we leave it in my car most of the time, and have a smaller one that gets used at the sitter's or if Dad is picking her up. She seems to ride better in the Britax though.

If you go to parents.com/boosters they have a list of seats and ratings. This may be one step ahead of where you are, but if you're considering a convertible seat that grows with your child it might be worth considering booster seat ratings. They even include a list of "not recommended" booster seats.

i have an evenflo convertible titan elite in our main car and a cosco 2 in 1 booster in our secondary. both work with no problems for our son, he even likes them! i think i paid around $60 for the evenflo seat (it was on sale) and around $40 for the cosco seat.

I hated my graco infant carseat...but it's different for ever person. I got my daughter a Britax Marathon it goes from 5-65 lbs. We had to save up for this one because Britax are a little pricey. But they have such high safety ratings it was worth it for us. It should also be the only car seat we ever need. I got it off of Travelingtykes.com it was the cheapest I could find it and they have a huge selection. It was the only place I could find Britax for less than $200. My daughter is on the small side so I don't think we'll have this issue but I have heard of children outgrowing the marathon before they hit 65 lbs becuase of their height. So that is also something to consider.
That probably didn't help at all but check out the website they run some great specials. We have been using the Marathon since she was 4 months and we still love it. It's heavy and on the large side so if you have a small car I wouldn't reccomend it, we have a small SUV and it almost touches the front seats while rear facing. It's easy to hook in and other than the weight of it pretty easy to transfer between cars though we don't move it often.
