Although, if you like his current car seat, I'd wait it out and see how long it actually takes him to gain those last few lbs. Someone on here gave me the same advice and I wish I'd listened before shelling out the cash! We got the Radian when DD was 38 lbs around 9 months, because she was gaining like crazy and I was sure she was going to reach the 40 lb limit fast. But of course she stopped gaining as soon as I bought it, and has actually lost a lb since then (now 18 mo). We would have upgraded anyway because I want to keep her rearfacing as long as possible, but there was no need for us to rush. Just something else to think about
I was going to say something like this. My DD1 reached 27lbs or so at 9mos, approached 30 lbs at 1 years, and is still at 30 lbs at 2 yrs & a few months! (she fluctuates up and down by a lb or so, and has been growing in height - so maybe height will matter more for your selection!)
