Car seats?

Amelia's in a 5 pt harness still. My car, the seat goes up to 55 lbs, so we've got a ways to go. In DH's car, it's only 40 lbs, and while at the doctor's yesterday (waiting for her stitches), we weighed her - fully dressed, she's right at 40lbs. So we need to replace it. I am looking at the Graco Nautilus. It goes up to 65lbs harnessed, and 100 lbs in a booster. I like Graco booster seats (both my older boys are in one now), so that is a bonus.

Does anyone have this seat? Or another seat they like? Amelia can't be the only one running into the 40 lb weight limit... is she??

I just asked a car seat question a few weeks ago and got several recommendations for the Nautilus. A friend IRL has it and really likes it, too. Neither of my boys are close to 40 lbs, but we needed second seats for my DH's Jeep. I really need to order them, I just keep putting it off!

Emma is 39 lbs so I replaced her 40 lbs carseat about a month ago with the Nautilus. Loved it when I bought it and still love it jsut as much now. I highly recommend it.


Happy car seat shopping!

I know you've already ordered it, but I just wanted to tell you that I've heard good things about the Nautilus as well.
