Graco Nautilus

I’ve taken some heat from readers following my reviews of beltpositioning booster seats we’ve used with our 4 ½-year-old, 47 poundson. There’s a certain brand that everyone seems to think I should beusing, because it would allow Owen to stay in a five-point harness foranother 20 pounds or so. And my immediate thought is always that whenthey start giving away said (expensive) brand for free down on thecorner, I’ll be first in line! But during CBB’s recent series on car seat safety I learned that there is a more affordable option in the Graco Nautilus ($159.99).We’ve been using this three-in-one seat for about a month now and Ihave to say, I’m a believer. The peace of mind I get from being able toharness Owen is immeasurable, and I can’t fathom how I ever made myselffeel okay with the notion of strapping him in with a lap belt, only.
