I've been out of the loop on carseats for a while but it just dawned on me that two of my seats are expiring soon or already expired and I probably should get something new! 6yo ds is in a new-ish high-backed CompassPoint (I think?) booster, he's good for now. 3.5yo ds just moved into a Radian65 which probably still has 2 years of use left in it. FYI, I really dislike the Radian because I find the straps incredibly difficult to adjust and I don't think they look very comfortable around the neckline, but it is a good seat and installs well so I'm keeping it. I won't buy another one, however. Almost-2yo dd has been in a Britax Roundabout (love) but a recent potty accident meant I switched her into a Britax Marathon (love). I also turned her FF with this switch. Yes, I know I could have kept her RF longer but the fights to get her buckled in were getting bad and I feel okay with this decision. So the two Britax seats are the ones that need to be replaced. If it matters, I drive a '04 Honda Odyssey that only has latch in the two middle captain's chairs, no latch in the back bench seat. 3.5yo ds & 2yo dd are in the middle at the moment, with 6yo ds in the back. I have also in the past put 6yo ds & 3.5yo ds in the back together with 2yo dd in the middle and one middle chair removed, and that has also worked well, but I find installing seats in the bench much more difficult without latch.
So what seat do you think would make the most sense? I haven't been on top of any new releases for a while and I'm not sure what's considered great these days? I'd like to keep 3.5yo ds in a five-point harness till he is five or so, and I like having dd in a seat higher than the Radian so she can see out the window better.
