Seat recommendations for 3yr8m DD


New member
I am starting to dislike the Nautilus in my car for DD. For some reason, it just doesn't seem to fit her right... She's currently 33 lbs and 39 inches. She's on the second harness slot with about 1.5 finger tips to go until she would need to move up to the third slot.

My issues with the seat fitting her is that the head wings on the seat do not seem to do anything for her. It actually seems like it makes her head protrude forward which creates horrible head slump if she falls asleep.

Installation wise it just isn't a great fit in the outboard position in the second row of my Trailblazer EXT. Also, that cup holder is making it next to impossible to install a Keyfit base properly next to it.

So, what seat would you recommend for her? The only major requirement would be adequate head support and that it could puzzle with a keyfit.
