Vent New seata. What to get?


New member
Pregnancy has muddled my brain AND I feel the need for new seats. So, please help.
M: currently 37lbs, 41" mostly torso.
New baby: arrives January.

Current seats available for use:
CCO (Dom 8/2009)
Radian 65SL (Dom 2009)
Radian 80 (Dom 2008)
My Ride (exp late 2015)
GN (exp Dec 2014)
CCO (getting from trusted source. Not sure of DOM)

I need a seat for each of these children for:
Babysitters car (she switches frequently between Highlander and older Ody). Currently using a RF radian but will have M FF starting this school year so it needs to be easy to install in both.

Grandparent/uncle car: needs to install easy in '99 suburban (and be able to seat belt tether), C-Max, and older frontier truck. Will be used in truck weekly for school pick up

My car (sienna 2013)

Dh's car (2009 Murano)

Baby seat in dh's car will not be used frequently but it will need to fit 3 across using seatbelt on occasion.

Biggest concerns right now are the babysitters seat and the grandparent seat for the 4 year old. But need to have plans for both for the new baby. CCO and Radian are incompatible for grandparent use in Suburban. My mom can actually install the GN but kid is on top slots (barely) so not sure if a new one is worth it. Radian requires a couple "tricks" for Highlander install FF (used to be my car so I'm very familiar) so I might want something different for sitter. Kid will only remain with this sitter until June then she is done and I don't need that seat anymore.
