Quoting Finally #2:" They are both good seats, rear facing up to 40 pounds, forward facing up to 65 pounds. Personally I love ... [snip!] ... up to 35 pounds. But to me because it can hold up to 100 pounds it means less money not having to buy an additional booster."
yeah i was going to just buy another one like i have it goes to 100 lbs. but its such a hassle to carry it and i wanted something easier to get up and go for my mom. she really doesnt go anywhere just down the road or to the store. and the 50 lb car seat is redic! plus getting the base in and then locking the carseat. The graco smart seat is def made to be put in a vehicle and to stay there!
ill have to look at the alpha omega....do you know how much it weighs?
