Why do car seats have to be so complicated???

He likes to look out the window, and he is a VERY cranky baby in the car (hence the fact that he was forward facing at 13 months)

We will be upgrading to a newer car within 12 months, but it will still be 2002 or older. The child will be 2 in December.

Thanks for the replies! I ahve heard that the straps are really hard to adjust. The ONLY thing that makes me want the Decathlon instead of the Marathon is the adjustable crotch strap. I think we will go with the Marathon. I have always been happy with it, why switch now?
So we finally got the insurance company to agree to reimburse us for our car seats. Now, I am debating between getting another Marathon, like we had, or the Decathlon. With the Decathlon I know that the crotch strap is adjustable, there is more padding and there is a button to adjust the straps instead of a ratchet. Is everything else the same about these seats? Does the Decathlon install the same way as the Marathon?

In my world that counts as a divorce. (I only left my ex 18 months ago - who would I be to judge him?) We've discussed all this and we both feel that we belong together. This guys is - as good as they get. Promise I didnt know he could do anything from here legally speaking....

I would still like constructive inputs. But back off the suspicious attitude please. For the divorce issue then I bet that's all very simple if both agree to be...

None of mine, sadly, but I know it works for some. ITA My second DS cried every time we went in the car until I turned him forward. But I never tried anything but the Graco Safeseat until he was 1. Maybe he would have been happier rear facing in a Britax....
