Arrow What's the best convertible carseat besides Britax?

The title says it...please SPAM me! I just bought a Blvd for my car, and our LO rarely rides in DH's car, so I can't see spending $200+ on a car seat for his truck.



Thanks so much~

I can't think of the name...but I think it is made by Fisher Price? I believe it is the same body as the Britax Marathon?

It depends on what you want in a seat and how old your LO is. The Scenera and the Evenflo Triumph Advance both rear face to 35lbs and ff to 50, and are fabulous seats for fairly cheap

Mine is an Eddie Bauer. I'm not sure who makes it. I LOVE IT. It's BEAUTIFUL and soft. I got it at Big Lots for around 100.

Evenflo Triumph Advance, it is $130, RFs to 35lbs and FFs to 50lbs. Awesome seat for the price. Nice tall top harness slots, plus the infinate adjust harness like the BV. I would try to steer clear of 3 in one seats such as the Eddie Bauer, they have low top harness slots and only a 40lb FFing weight limit.

I would also go for either the Evenflo Triumph Advance or the Cosco Senera.

Fisher Price Safe Voyage, It will be around 6months old but is really cheap at albeebaby and a good carseat.

We LOVE our Graco Comfortsport. Adjusting the straps is so easy. We won't let anything by Evenflo in this house... we've had nothing but problems with every product we've bought of theirs... from carseats to baby bottles!
