    2008 Pontiac torrent/Chevy Equinox...convertible help?

    I was fully sold on the extend2fit for the weight limit and the way it was made not to take up sooo much room for the front driver/passenger...also the other features. But I have read review after review saying for some it pushes the babies head forward causing bad head slump :/ my Dd is 4 months old and she definitely doesn't need any of that. I expect to put her in a convertible in 1-2months, as she's beginning to get annoyed with being in her rotat bsafe 35 because of its narrowness. So I'm looking at other options. I'm just looking for a safe and comfy convertible that is preferably below $300 or around this area. My ds sits in a incognito booster beside her.
    Also, Dd is 15/16lbs at just turning 4months today, If that gives you an idea how she's growing for a weight limit. I would love to keep her RF til at least 2+...ds grew so fast so I'm Not sure if she's going to follow that pattern or not.

    Also, the torrent is practically the same as the Equinox.

    There are many recline levels on the Extend2fit, I can't imagine head slump is an issue RF! In all fairness we don't own one, we do have a Graco 4Ever that I love & is super compact. 40lbs RF limit will get most kids to 3 or 4 years RF.

    I think the 4ever is wider than the extend2fir, I'll have to look into that. The 4ever is definitely a seat in interested in thanks!

    Any other Recs? Or can someone just give a testimonial on the pros/cons on these seats? Thanks!
