You’ll appreciate the strength of the steel-reinforced frame, 3-poosition recline for comfort and fit while your little passenger enjoys a personal cup holder and storage compartment.

Car Seat Laws Changing

Next year a new law will go into effect about NOT using LATCH for older children. Apparently LATCH cannot handle more than 65lbs. This is the combined weight of your child and the car seat. If I add my oldest daughter’s weight + the car seat, it comes out to 63lbs.

Amazon: Graco Nautilus $129

I can’t believe the Graco Nautilus is still on sale for $129. I would say between $119-$129 are great prices. It’s a great seat and really is the end of the seats you’ll need because it goes into a booster and then a backless booster. In NY, the law is 7. In MD, the law was 8. Either way, I have a few years before car seats will no longer be needed. I have one of these in each of our cars. Love the cup holder. Wish there were two. My only complaint is they redesigned it and it’s difficult for my 4 3/4 year old to buckle herself in. I of course always tighten her, but I love giving her the independence to try to help out.
