The question above is pretty much it. My lil boy is tall for his age..33 inches, and 33-34 lbs. My mom got me a toddler car seat (cosco) with some credit card points. It doesnt attach to the car, other than by the seatbelt. My lil guy is only 1 inch below the height. His baby seat is getting too small. I would like to keep him in the safest position, but I just do not trust this seat. I also do not want to spend 100$+ on a seat.. I want something safe, and something that will grow with him for at least a few years..
I feel odd about the seats that only use the car's sholder and lapbelt, instead of a harness type buckle on the seat itself. I worry he could get out.. he is only 16 months.. but as big as my friends 2 year old. (all the guys in DH's family are at least 6 ft tall.. at 6'3", DH is the shortest, so I'm sure my DS is going to someday tower over me...hes gonna have to practically bend over to hug me oneday!)
I want something that will be long lasting, affordable, and most of all safe! (easy to move from car to car helps...)
Any advice? Maybe I should post this in toddlers?
