I need a cheap carseat, as in under $50. A convertible that still rear faces at 40 pounds. Is this possible?

It RF to 35 lbs, though, not 40. It's under $50 by 50 cents, lol.

Are there car seats that will forward face over 40 pounds?

If you are looking for a car seat that RF to 40lbs and FF past 40lbs for $50 or less, you won't find that. They max out at 40lbs for that price.

I don't think you will find anything that forward faces past 40 for that price. Even 20 dollars more can get you 5-10 more pounds.

Then one that can just forward face past 40lbs? Are there carseats like that or would a kid typically be in a booster by then?

That would probably be fine. Ugh... my kid is gaining too quickly.

Oh yes there are car seats that FF at that weight. Depends on the childs age and weight. If you spend a little more, a convertible car seat is a lot safer. Like graco myride65.

It's okay.



We rarely ride in the car, and when I bought her carseat for $65 I thought that surely she wouldn't reach 40 pounds anytime soon. Ugh.

Yeah DS is like that too. I'm afraid we are going to have to find another seat for him soon because he's already 35 pounds.

It's stressing me out a little bit.



I saw on walmart's site a graco myride 65 for $132. SO said he'd be able to get it. *Sigh of relief!*
