    What would you recommend???

    I'm looking for a convertable car seat to use after my daughter outgrows her Graco Snugride. One for my car, and one for her dad's car (she rides in both pretty frequently). We're able to spend as much as we need to for both seats. We're not planning on having another child for the next 5 years or so.

    Here are a few I'm considering...

    Marathon
    Boulevard
    Radian65
    Recaro Signo (I've heard great things about this one)

    Not sure what to do, need imput!

    Unless there are serious issues once it is actually released, we'll be getting Signo's when it's time to upgrade to a convertible seat.

    I like my Boulevard more than my Marathon because it seems like it has more shoulder room for my 5 yr old DS. I know you won't need to worry about that for about 5 more years, but I just thought I would let you know that my DS has to hunch his shoulders in in the Marathon, but he has plenty of shoulder room in the BV. I love the adjuster knobs for the harness height, too. It's definitely worth the extra money, IMO. I'll also be getting the Signo when it comes out, for my DD. I think it looks comparable to the BV and I can't wait to try it out!

    We have a Toyota Corolla and a Ford Escort. She's currently about 13 lbs and 24" (she's 4.5 months).

    I'm not planning on replacing the infant seat right away, but I am really tired of messing with the infant seat and lugging it around (plus she's starting to hate being in it) so I don't think I'll use it too much longer. I'll probably get the new seats in September.
