I don't need it yet, and won't for a little while I'm sure.

I'd prefer to order off amazon (Prime shipping) if at all possible.

Right now she's still in her Graco safe seat.

She's 13lbs 15oz and 28 inches long, 13 months old. (yes she's tiny)

I cannot afford a britax or radian right now. Am considering the My ride 65, but willing to look at other options IF there is something better out there.

My now 3.5 year old is not even 30 lbs, so I don't see her outgrowing a RF seat for a long time, so I think something with a 30-35 max weight would be fine.

The MyRide is a great seat! It will certainly last you a long time especially if you have little peanuts!

Check out the Extended Rear Facing sticky for other great choices for convertibles. Although Amazon does often have great prices, they're not always the best out there. If you decide on a seat, we can search around for the best price, often with free shipping like Amazon Prime offers.

I think I'll stick to teh Myride then.


My 6 year old is 42 lbs and still harnessed in the Nautilus, my 3.5 year old is 26lbs, still harnessed of course and just recently FF (due to height) in a Nautilus, and then the baby is 13lbs. So all little girls.

Its been a while since I was carseat shopping. I just wanted to get the best bang for my buck so to speak.

Have you checked into the Britax roundabouts? They're running about $200. The complete air and coccoro's are both great seats too!

Are you talking about between 2 Nautis? If that's the case, a MyRide might not either. It is just as wide (or maybe wider) than any Britax seat.

ETA: Just checked the measurements of these 2. A MyRide is 1.5" wider than a Roundabout 50. In fact, a MyRide is wider than all Britax convertibles..
