I need to start looking for a new car seat. My son is special needs so he will be in a 5 point carseat for a while - he is already outgrowing the one we have. Does anyone know of a brand for larger kids.

Just wanted to say that I have 2 autistic boys,(1 with PDD). Try KMart, that store has everything!

I second the Nautilus. Walmart sells them for under $250, at least here in Canada. We have one and love, not to mention my daughter loves it. She was hugging it and trying to nap in it before I had it all the way out of the box!

depends on his weight. the graco nautilus can be used with the 5pt upto 65 lbs and is very well priced. the britax frontier will do 5pt upto 80 lbs but is more expensive. evenflo also boasts about a car seat that will fit 5-100 lbs, but i would probably research that one to see how long they can actually use the harness for. and that brand isn't the best anyways. good luck.
