Re: Nautilus / ProSport / Frontier ???

I recently bought the Frontier 85 for DD since we had horrid head slump in the Nautilus. Love the Frontier. No head slump. DD actually has to lay her head back when she sleeps. So much better!

Re: Nautilus / ProSport / Frontier ???

I have the frontier, I've played with the other two. I'm not a big fan of the Nautilus, but I don't have a lot of Graco love...I know, I'm in the minority. I really like the ProSport, but can't justify the cost with a kid that would have maybe 1/2 an inch of torso growth left in the harness....

I don't know why!Maybe I'm just super spoiled, but I've really tried to like their seat, really I have! a Nauti and a MyRide would have been perfect in DH's car, but I just.don't.like.them.

Re: Nautilus / ProSport / Frontier ???

We have the Frontier and LOVE it. DD is 4 and 30 pounds (she's a peanut) and about 39" long. She has LOTS of room left in it.
The only feature I don't care for is that you need to take the seat out to adjust the harness. But this really only needs to be done 1-3 times a year so it's not so bad. We got it in March and I just raised it 2 weeks ago!
I left the top tether latched and just undid the latch system and slid the seat forward, shoved my hand up the back and adjusted it like that. That way I didn't have to undo the whole seat.

She's never fallen asleep in it (she's not a sleeper in the car) so I can't tell you about head slump.

Re: Nautilus / ProSport / Frontier ???

It's just one of those things! I have owned Graco infant seats but that's about it. I am not a huge fan of their other seats and there are SO many others that I would rather buy. It's not like they're bad or anything...just a matter of personal taste I guess!

Depends on the car. I can undo the top tether and move the head rest in my car.

My dd never had issues sleeping in the car! This is her first ride in the frontier.


My reason for picking the frontier over the others is the 9 year experation on the seat.
