What kind of car seat are you using for your LO??

Hello All! I was curious about what car seats everyone is using. I have a Safety 1st, Winnie The Pooh set. It's a Car seat and Stroller combo. But I think my little girl is out growing out of it. It says she can use it until she's 22lbs but her feet are sticking out of it. LOL.
So needless to say, I'm looking for advice for what to get next.
Thanks a Bunch! :o)

as long as she has 1in above her head she is fine to sit in it as long as she's under the weight limit i have the roundabout 50 for my 22month old who still is RF in it and will be for awhile 24lbs 32in the graco myride and complete air 65 are also great both RF to 40lbs and FF to 65lbs

I switched to a Britax Boulevard convertible car seat back in early January because he hates the car. It seemed to help a little. We're thinking about going with the Safety 1st Complete Air convertible car seat for the 2nd car. Both systems allow you to change the headrest height without removing the car seat from the car and supposedly have good side impact protection.

Hi! I'm not a first time mom so i can tell you by experience that i have the Peg perego car seat and stroller and by the time my first daughter ( now 22 months ) hit 5 months it become so heavy and she was to tall to be kept in there that i switch her to a car seat 3 in 1 ( which means it's rear facing uo till 1 year old then it's front facing till they out grow wearing the straps then it turns in to a booster seat which you use with the seat belt ) it's the best car seat to get. I have a 5 months old and with in the next week or so i will doing the swith from infant car seat to the 3 in 1 car seat.
Good luck

We just recently bought the Graco MyRide 65 as well. We also went with it due to the weight limit and rear facing longer part. My LO still has a few pounds to go in his Chicco infant carrier, but he's starting to get a bit heavy for me with that thing! So he'll be switching soon.

We're just about to buy our next carseat. My daughter is within a couple of pounds of the weight restriction of her Safety 1st infant seat. We're going to go with a Safety 1st All-in-One Alpha Omega car seat. They fit up to 100 lbs and can face the rear, forward, and act as a booster seat. If you get a regular convertible car seat, a lot of them only hold 50-80 lbs, and I like the higher weight limit on the car seat we've picked out.

They outgrow it when their heads are within one inch of the top, regardless of the weight limit. They should tell you that but they don't. Anyway, my baby is in a Graco MyRide 65, because it rear faces longer than most and can forward face until 65 pounds (although I think the height limit probably will be the real one, which I'm not sure of).
