I am shopping for a new car seat for my toddler. My 7 month old is ready to move up to a covertible seat from his infant carrier so I need to get a new seat for my 2 year old. He weighs 29.3 pounds and I know that most high back harness boosters that later turn into a seat belt restrained booster are 30-100 pounds. They seem like they range from $40-$150 and there are so many out there. I am just looking for recommendations for/against brands and styles. Thank you

What can I do next?

I follow the 4 years, 40 inches and 40 lbs suggested guideline for moving a toddler into a booster seat. With that and considering your son's age/ht/wt, I'd recommend the Britax Marathon or Regent or one of the comparable ones, depending on his height.

We love our Cosco Alpha Omega Elite. Big lots just had it on sale for $80.00. Good Luck.

I just bought a Alpha Apex from Babies R Us. I like it so far and the reviews at Babies R Us were all good. I chose it because you can use it as a five point harness until 65 lbs if need be, then use it as a booster seat w/car seat belts. It was $99 but I had a coupon for $10 off. Good luck.
