The Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 car seat. It keeps them safe in a 5-point harness longer than most car seats - all the way up to 65 lbs. Later, the seat converts to a highback booster then backless booster, for comfortable custom protection up to 100 lbs. This is a great alternative to the more pricey ones. The price does vary at different places, check Walmart.com, Target.com, BabyCenter.com. If you want a variety of pattern check it out on Graco.com. Prices range from $149. to $179. depending on the store.

The stay of enforcement provides some temporary, limited relief to the crafters, children’s garment manufacturers and toy makers who had been subject to the testing and certification required under the CPSIA. These businesses will not need to issue certificates based on testing of their products until additional decisions are issued by the Commission. However, all businesses, including, but not limited to, handmade toy and apparel makers, crafters and home-based small businesses, must still be sure that their products conform to all safety standards and similar requirements, including the lead and phthalates provisions of the CPSIA.
Please visit the CPSC Web site at www.cpsc.gov/about/cpsia/cpsia.html for more information on all of the efforts being made to successfully implement the CPSIA.
