    Canada Need a new car seat - Canada

    My son is 23lbs at 15 months. He is still in his graco click and connect 35 bucket seat. I keep hearing good things about the Diono. I have a 2009 chevy malibu. My mother is planning to buy this as we have another one on the way and will just use the graco with the new baby. I honestly just dont know where to start even looking!! Thank you

    [QUOTE="Jboswell;2927797"]My son is 23lbs at 15 months. He is still in his graco click and connect 35 bucket seat. I keep hearing good things about the Diono. I have a 2009 chevy malibu. My mother is planning to buy this as we have another one on the way and will just use the graco with the new baby. I honestly just dont know where to start even looking!! Thank you [/QUOTFlloHi and welcome. How tall is your baby? Does he still have at least an inch of shell above his head?

    The Diono is a great seat, but it's not the easiest to use and install. I have two and although I really love them rear facing, I hate them with a passion when forward facing. They can be really tricky to install with the seatbelt (can't get a tight install in my SO's Matrix) and the required harness pads become really stiff during winter. I also prefer a smooth harness adjuster. With the Radian you have to pull multiple times (tug-tug-tug) instead of once. The headwings always keep sliding down, no matter what. As you can see, it's love/hate!

    I far prefer my Clek and Britax seats, but there are other good seats available, for less. If you tell us how long you plan on keeping your son rear facing, it will help us make better suggestions!
