I'm in the market for two new carseats that need to be replaced due to an accident. There is an unlimited budget for these new seats. With so many options and choices out there I am lost. What would you buy if you could have any seat you wanted?

I would need a booster seat for my 5 year old who was 48 lbs and 48 inches a few months ago. I would like a high back booster that is comfortable and has good head support. We road trip often and she sometimes naps. Which I don't know if this is safe but that is a whole new discussion. She would like something girly with a cupholder. She was in a Graco Turbobooster. I am unsure whether to go with that or something a little pricier... a britax or clek oobr maybe?

My other seat is for my two year who just turned forward facing. She is roughly 28lbs and 34 inches. I would like a seat where I don't have to rethread the harness. She has in an original

With the 5 year old, I might try narrowing it down to 2 or 3 seats that you like the stats on, and let her try them out (hopefully you can find them carried in store near you) and see which one she is most comfy in. If you have a Babies 'R Us near you, they will let you try seats out in your car, which can help you decide on fit.

I really love the Radian XTSL that my DD (age 4) is in now (and has been in since she was 3).
