    Hi there.

    How old, tall, and heavy is your child, and what is your budget for a new seat?

    Re: Toddler car seat

    I have a Corolla and a Graco 4Ever, and it is pretty compact when installed as upright as possible. With a bigger baby like yours, a Graco Extend2Fit might be better. I hear it can be quite compact, and there is a great deal on Amazon right now.

    Here is the whole list of deals in case someone has a more educated suggestion that is also on sale: https://carseatblog.com/35482/2017-d...ers-strollers/

    For a compact seat for a tall child I'd look at the Graco Extend2Fit, Safety 1st Grow and Go EX Air (these both have 50 pound/49" limits rear facing), Britax Boulevard ClickTight, Britax Advocate ClickTight (these both have 40 pound/49" limits rear facing).
