My two year old is 35 pounds, the car seat he rides in that's in my dad's car only goes up to 40 pounds. Any suggestions on one that harnesses higher?

My DD is 2.5 and 35lbs and she is in a Graco nautilus and still has a lot of room to grow!!! It doesn't rearface though so if you want to rearface longer that one won't work

Britax frontier. We have it for my three year old and love it.

Edit: the frontier is only forward facing. If you want a rear facing then forward facing seat then I agree with the myride 65. My son loved his.
