Can anyone tell me a good toddler carseat?

My son is SUPER tall for his age, about 36-37 inches. I bought a Britax Marathon when he switched to a convertible seat but it's not comfortable for him anymore. I'll save it for this baby since it will be within the expiration range, but I need a new one for him.

Can anyone recommend one? I drive a Mazda 6 sedan. I've heard good things about the MyRide but it's WAY too big for my backseat. And the Britax is super bulky as well. We switch the carseat out among cars so it needs to be easily interchangable to another car.

He's 2 but about 36 inches and around 34 lbs.

Just curious as to why it's not comfortable for him anymore?

My suggestion would be to go to Babies R Us and look at what they have and ask them about taking different seats out to your car to see how they fit. We have a Britax Blvd, so I can't really help with suggestions other than those.

My younger 3 are in Radian 65s, but they aren't quite as easy to switch around as the Marathons were (they were all in Marathons when they were younger).

DD was 32.5" at her last well baby visit in Feb. and has a Graco MyRide 65. I thought for some reason that it was smaller than the Britax Marathon.

I agree that going into BRU isn't a bad idea. My BFF's DS is about the same height as yours and I believe they're using a Graco Nautilous.

:lurk:

My son is about the same size as yours (he's almost 6 though lol) and this is the one we have. I love it. I don't thinks it too bad to switch either. Not worse than any other seat. HTH
