    Talking Need advice on a new carseat

    My 38 1/2 lb 2 year old is currently in the Britax Marathon. She has almost outgrown it. I've been looking around for a new seat. I'm thinking about the Britax Frontier Combination. Any advice on this seat? I like the idea of not having to buy another seat for her. It sounds like this seat will change as she grows. Is there maybe another seat that is comparable? I would appreciate any help. Thank you

    Hi. Welcome to the board! May I ask how tall is your dd? Also do you know her torso measurement? (to get her torso measurement have her sit against the wall and measure from the floor to the top of her shoulders) These measurements would help a lot in knowing how much more growing room you might have in the MA and what seats might work best next.

    Hi and welcome!

    How has she outgrown the Marathon? Just wanted to make sure at that weight that you have her forward facing. Are the shoulder straps no longer at or above her shoulders or are the top of her ears above the top of the shell?

    If she truly has outgrown the Marathon then the Frontier and the Graco Nautilus would be great seats to look at. Do you have a store by you that carries carseat that you can play with? Babies R Us lets you try out the install in your own vehicle prior to purchasing, which is great.
