help/suggestions with carseat upgrade

My girl is 3 1/2 and 37 lbs (not sure how tall- but sure it is above average). she has outgrown her 2nd carseat and I want to buy the new/last one. Read great things about the Graco Nautilis 3 in 1 and it is in our price range. Need something with good padding on lower back as she complains about that on alot of car rides....any suggestions for me? Want to stay around $150...

If I were you I would do a quick torso and overall height measure just to be safw. The GN and Evenflo Maestro are good choices, but if you have a child with a long torso they may not last as long as you would like. The GN doesnt make a good booster for alot of kids, it doesnt fit right, the Maestro makes a better booster. The Britax Frontier 85 is more expensive, but its harness straps go higher.

Which seat is she in now? My almost 3 year old 42 inch 44lb dd still fits in her convertable.

Re: help/suggestions with carseat upgrade

The Maestro makes a fabulous seat if it fits your child. Don't get hung up on "last" seat -- boosters are cheap if you end up having to buy one later
