Car seats became a slight obsession for me at one point. For my first child I went with the Britax Decathlon, since it went up to 65 lbs. Then kid #2 came along, and I had a dilemma to figure out: how to get the car seats I needed without letting them grow out of them too soon.
So I found the Frontier. And it’s great. To me it seemed like the safest and longest lasting option available for several reasons:
It has the Highest Forward Facing Seat Capacity, which allows children to remain 5 point harnessed up to 80 pounds.
It breaks down to become a booster seat… so I don’t have to buy a booster seat.
This will literally be the LAST car seat I’ll have to buy. It wasn’t cheap, but it will keep the kiddo in a 5 point harness as long as possible, then will break down to a booster. And safety aside, it looks good. It’s sleek, modern, and functional. The cupholders are all my kid needed to see, he was sold!
From the Britax website:
The Frontier combination Harness-2-Booster seat can be used for children over 100 lbs. as long as the vehicle shoulder belt guide places the belt in the proper position for the child, and the top of the child’s ears are below the top of the head restraint, and the child physically fits in the seat, and is not being used beyond its expiration date (9 years from date of manufacture).
