I'm starting to look for a convertible seat as my son is going to grow out of his Snugride sometime in the next few months. Can most convertable seats that are rear facing be used with LATCH? Or do you have to use a seatbelt? I'm interested in either the MyRide or Radian.

Yes, you can use LATCH when the seat is rear-facing. It's how we get the best install in my DH's vehicle. I bet you'd be happy with either seat - both are good for rear-facing.

All car seats in the US come with LATCH connectors. It's required. LATCH weight limits vary by car and seat, but in most vehicles you can use the LATCH to install until your child is either 40 or 48lbs. The new "SL" radians allow you to use LATCH to the full weight limit of the seat, provided your vehicle was manufactured in September 2005 or sooner. In general, you won't have to switch to a seatbelt install with any seat until your little one is ffing.
