    3 year old, 47#, tight budget, what seat?

    I'm thinking an Apex 65 would be cheapest, but where can you get those any more? And am I right that Target has a Nautilus for $125 this week? Any other ideas?

    I'm not sure of torso height, but the child is about the same overall height as my 5 year old, who has a slightly longer torso, and has maybe 1" of growing room in a marathon. So that's kind of what I'm figuring for this kid's torso height.

    For a long torso kid, I would try to get a nautilus this week for the $125. That's a great deal. Its cheaper then the apex the pp linked. The nautilus has taller top slots then the apex.

    $96.99 + $7.95 shipping. There's a thread about this site somewhere on the board - seems legit and they're shipping quickly.
