    What seat could this be?

    xdh finally bought the two older kids carseats/boosters. He won't tell me what they are. All he says is they're safe, nib, they're like the nautilus dd has and they go from 30-100 lbs. He didn't say they were the nautilus, though they could be. It's a whole control issue why he won't tell me what they are. I'm fine with dd being in a booster, but ds is just 30lbs and not even 3 yet. I want to believe him when he says they are safe, but his mother probably picked them out and she tried to give me a ohs. He took dd across town on his lap when she was a baby. So obviously he is not truly safety concerned. So please tell me what other seats it could be.

    I offered to install them for him, just so I could get a peak and make sure they were on the right slots. I'm really thinking about the tech course so I will have a certification that makes me the expert.

    The only thing that goes from 30-100 does NOT have a harness...so maybe it's 'like' a Nautilus in that the box says Graco on it? Or he misread the labels and it's a Cargo or Chase or which have a harness 20-40 then become a booster 30-100. Hopefully that's the case

    I'd guess it's a Graco Highback booster. They are labeled 30-100 pounds. But I think the Cosco or Evenflo backless boosters are 30-100 pounds. Hopefully it's at least a Graco High back booster. Maybe it's like the Nautilus because it's made by Graco? Or because it has the red belt guide like the Nautilus?

    Sounds like a turbobooster to me. And if that's the case, backless they're rated from 40 lbs. The only backless that I can think of that's rated from 30 lbs is the cosco.
