Can anyone recomend a decent front-facing carseat? I want something with darker colors but that is not going to cost me hundreds to purchase. My son is only 8 months old, but by Christmas, when we head up to New York, We will need a new car seat. Any suggestions? Any experiences? All help appreciated!

Check out the store Toysrus or if you don't have time...go to Toysrus.com to check on prices. I got mine there. It is a Graco and it's dark blue. My daughter is 2 yrs and 4 months old and it still fits her good. I like it because I can take the cover and the straps off to wash them. I believe it was around $100, but they have lots to choose from. Check it out!!

This is the latest version of the one I bought for my youngest http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_9990000044850411P and part of the desciption:5 to 35 pounds rear facing infant; 22 to 40 pounds forward facing and 40-100lbs belt positioning booster This new model is a bit more than what I paid for mine but I love it. Mine is black with more of a reddish purple trim. I was so happy that I could keep him rear facing for longer plus I won't have to buy a new one when he's big enough for a booster. Mine was on sale for $120, this model's regular price is listed at $160...but trust me, it's well worth it! Besides the length of time it can be used, it's extremely easy to install (I had a 2 door coupe when I got it), stays cool despite the black color and is super easy to clean.

We purchased one from walmart that was about $50 and has dark fabric on it. As long as it meets the requirements I don't see any problems with it. My daughter has alot of room to grow in it and its soft. Not sure of the name of it. Check out websites like babiesrus parents give alot of comments on thing they like about different carseats. Its really helpful and I use it alot before I make purchases.

I know this is very late - but why turn your children so soon - it's so much safer to let them ride rear facing instead!
