Car seat???? I'm me 4 kids; Kentucky 3109 posts
15th Jan '13

Ok I need to buy 4 car seats. I want to use the 5pt harness as long as possible. My kids are 4ft tall and 62 lbs, 3ft 4in and 38 lbs, then twins are both about 15 lbs and 28 inches. What would you ladies suggest? The twins are still in the infant carriers and will stay until they April when they turn 1. Then they will be RF in a bigger seat. I want to go ahead and buy their seat while I can. Babies R Us and Toys R Us will be having their GREAT trade in from Jan 18-Feb 10th. Save 25% with a trade in. If you don't have a trade in they still have a 15% off sale going on during that time.

how old are the kids, what kind of vehicle do you have and what's your budget?

Britax Frontier 85 for the older two. They go to 85lbs harnessed and have the highest harness on the market. They can also be a booster until 120lbs and have a 8 or 10 year (can't remember) expiration date. For the babies I'd get any convertible you like with a high RF weight limit, like 40lbs and a decent FF harness limit. Most are 65lbs.

they are almost 5, 4 and 9 months. I drive a mini van lol plenty of room. The older 2 go in the back and the babies are in the middle.

I agree with the Britax Frontier suggestion [we love ours], however...don't buy them for BRU. They are $212 WITH the trade-in and you can get them cheaper at AlbeeBaby and it more color options!
