I dont plan to use an infant carseat this time, but I have one if for some reason I ever need to use it. I also have a Evenflow Titan for DD that I'd like to put in DH's truck so that we arent ever switching carseats.
Both sets of grandparents have carseats, so the ease of install is not important to me. These will seldomly, if ever be use in anyone else's car.
I'd really, really like to use the same car seat for both kids. I hate change. I like for DH and I to always have the same phone, I'd buy 5 honda civics if i could never have to learn to drive another car again. I'm looking for an affordable carseat that is safe for kids 5-50ish pounds. I dont plan to rear face until 4, and right now my 2.5 year old is 22 lbs, so I'm not too concerned about them outgrowing anything. DH and I were both super small kids, and the maxium height for our entire family (both sides) is 5'7 1/2.
So, good carseats for short, small kiddos that are pretty easy to latch and can fit in a very small car that doesnt have LATCH. This is what I found. What do you think?
Other reccomendations? $300 is kind of the upwards of my budget, so I have to really stay below that. I'd love a Britax, but I just can't afford it. Unless, possibly, possibly (I would really be pushing the financial limit) this one:
but, it doesnt seem to have any head support for infants, so Id have to buy that separately, which means spending more money.
