Thanks for the information. I would never have looked in the carseat forum for any reason.

And eta I had no idea about this, even though I imagine it's my job as a parent to know this.
I have Nautilus too, they weigh a whopping 26 lbs, so for sure you need a seatbelt install. I changed DD1 (6.5) to a booster as there is no possible way to seatbelt install in our dodge van in the back row (only one tether anchor, in the wrong place!) and still have 4 lbs to go for DD2 yet.

Thank you for posting this! I just sent it off to DH to do the math and then make the changes accordingly.

Thanks for the tip, for some reason I don't really like to install them with seatbelts but DS1 is a wild child and I don't trust him in a booster...I'll get DH to make the change :/

This doesn't really effect us because I use seat belts to be able to fit 3 across anyway. But bumping this up for anyone who hasn't seen it
