Convertable car seat advise?

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

Our daughter is now 6 months 15 lbs & 25" long. We are looking into buying a convertable seat to grow with her, and get her out of her 'pumpkin seat' :o) We have a few months before she gowns out of the current seat, but have started looking.



does anyone know anything about this seat:

Alpha Luxe Echelon Convertible Car Seat - by Safety 1st

We don't want to spend more than $150 MAX and want it to go up to atleast 80 lbs that also turns into a backless booster.



Advise? do's / don'ts? pro's con's? the more feedback the better please

We have used Graco for all of our carseats, and we have at least 4 of them... we have 3 kids under 4-years old. They have all been the right price and easy to use. We have the convertible car seat "ComfortSport" that they make... which we have used with my two oldest from the time they were 6 months old. He needed the convertible before my daughter could use it for too long... so we purchased the Graco CarGo seat... and it has served us well too. My daughter is currently using the Highback TurboBooster. My son is still in the ComfortSport in one car and the CarGo in the other car... he's about 32 pounds and 37 inches tall. My infant is going to be big enough for the ComfortSport soon, so my son will be down to one car seat again... just the CarGo. It won't be too long and my daughter will be able to use a backless booster... and my son will move into the TurboBooster. Good luck... we have been very happy with Graco quality and price.

Quoting Amy:

My husband is a police officer and a certified care seat installer. The Britex 5 point harness is the best one out there and they now sell them at Target. You can use then for along time and they are easy to install. Iff you chose a different seat at least make sure it has a five point harness.



thankyou amy.  5 pt safety restraint is one of my requirements.  not sure if we can afford britax or not & they dont convert to a booster.  ugh decisions decisions
