Quoting lolajessup:" Is that your price range? I'd personally go with a my ride if I was gonna be using a convertible in place of an infant carrier."
Quoting Aria Montgomery ♥:" I have the Alpha Omega Violet and to be honest, hate it! It doesn't seem to last as long as they try to crack em to be! DD is almost 2 and her harness is at highest slot."
Quoting LolaMcKitten:" I had considered this one myself, but ultimately went with a Graco My Ride 65 because it also has really ... [snip!] ... in the box lol. From actually going in and handling the seats myself, though, I feel very comfortable with my decision. "
Quoting Rockin' Rae:" I have heard not so good things about that car seat, very hard to install, not so great fit, and it cannot ... [snip!] ... be used as a booster because of the way it lays the seatbelt on the child. I would definately get the myride over this one!!!"This. Plus the bottom harness slot is pretty high on the Alpha Omega Elite, so it may not fit a newb at all, because the straps need to come out at or below the shoulders for a correct fit.
Quoting shelbylynn [30 WEEKS!]:" I'm wanting to stay in between $200-300, if I have to go over for safety I will. I am wanting a travel system with the infant car seat but would like a convertible car seat to keep in my SO's truck/"honestly I would get a diono or whatever they are called. They have an all in one too that you wouldn't ever have to buy another car seat with.
