Thread: 2nd Carseat

  1. #1

    Question 2nd Carseat

    I posted this yesterday, but forgot to include my childs age and weight!! : ) She is 11 months and 22 pounds and 30 inches. She is currently using a RF MA, but we need a 2nd seat that will go in an extended cab pickup. The 2nd carseat will be used 2 times per week and a couple weekends a month to go to the cabin. What do you recommend? TIA!

    The least expensive option would be a Cosco Scenera, which runs $40-$50 at Target, Kmart and Walmart. It can be used rear facing to 35 lb and front facing to 40.

    If you're looking for something in a more moderate range that will have some more of the features that you're used to in the Marathon (like EPS foam and a higher overall weight limit), you could check out the Fisher Price Safe Voyage Deluxe (a "stripped down" version of the Marathon) for $130 at Albee Baby or the new Evenflo Triumph Advance for $130 at Target among other places.
