answer 1
NO. A newborn needs an infant carseat or a convertible seat that can rearface and forward face. This seat can only forward face. You want to keep your child in a rearfacing carseat as long as possible as it is the safest. Some convertible carseats have rearfacing limits of up to 40 lbs. You should keep the child rearfacing up to the limit of the carseat (also check to make sure it is not outgrown by height...tops of ears should be below the shell of the carseat. This seat is for a child who is AT ABSOLUTE MINIMUM 20 lbs and 1 year, but much better suited for kids over 2 or over 40 lbs since it is best to keep them rearfacing during that time period.

No, this carseat is not front facing. It's a 3-in-1 for the 5 point harness, seat without the harness (but with a seat belt), and a backless booster seat. The seat with the harness goes up to 40 lbs., the seat without the harness goes up to 60 lbs., and the booster seat goes up to 100 lbs.

I love this car seat. We bought one for our daughter. It's very comfortable for her to sit in, even on long trips. The covers come off easily and are machine washable (on the delicate cycle). The straps come on and off very easily. In fact, I just washed them today, and sprayed Clorox bleach on it and power washed them while the covers were being washed. It's not too heavy, but is very safe. We loved this car seat so much that we bought one for our second daughter. It also reclines slightly, making it even more comfortable.

I highly recommend this car seat. You won't have to buy another car seat (once you get past the front facing stage), of course.

Is the seat brown or gray?

I was looking at buying the set of 2 of these seats that is also listed on walmart.com. I noticed that the color of those looks brown (and also in some of the secondary pictures for the single seat purchase). The color on the single seat primary photo above looks gray. Can you clarify the color? The color for the single seat or double purchase is both listed as bravo, but I am wondering if they are different.

The Nautilus is a combination seat, meaning that it can used forward facing with the harness and then once the harness is outgrown you can use it as a belt positioning booster seat using your vehicle's seat belt.

This seat is a forward facing seat that can also be used as a booster seat. It is for kids age 2 (min because kids under 2 years old should still be rear facing) through 8 to 12 years (until the child can properly fit a car seat's seat belt).

We own this car seat for our 5 year old and it is a great 5 point harness seat. It also works very well as a booster, but it is really big and heavy to be used as a booster. Just recently, we moved our daughter into the turbobooster just because the Nautilus is so big and heavy.

I don't know if you have already purchsed or not but, if I'm not mistaken, the it lists the height on the side of the seat (i'm not at home so I can't look sorry.)

Just a added tid bit, if the straps won't go over the winter coat, it is recommended that you take that coat off. #The general rule is that you shouldn't have to adjust straps for jackets or coats and if you do they are too big to wear while buckled.)

im not sure about the actual height restriction but my daughter still fit in the harness at 46in, however the harness straps were too short to fit over her bulky winter coat. she actually outgrew the harness by weight before she outgrew it by height and she is in the 60th percentile for height for her age.

My guess is you aren't asking where the 5 pt harness straps are, BUT rather the shoulder strap height adjustment slots. My Nautilus only has 4 different height adjustment slots. So when manufacturer says 5 pt harness they aren't talking about height slots. They are saying there's 5 areas that help secure a child during an accident.

Originally everybody sold both seats were $180 in the store and online. Then for some reason Walmart started selling the gray seat for $138 and kept the other at $180. Maybe Walmart.com bought too many of the gray seats and they are trying to cut down on inventory. However, no matter what color car you have the gray one will match up. This can't be said for the Pink-orange one. Buy the gray one. You won't be disappointed and you'll save some cash.

Sometimes its the difference in fabric. The one I purchased for almost 180 from babies r us has sofet fabric that is exclusive to babies r us. The one I purchased from Walmart for 129, has different, less plush fabric, but just as great of a seat. Wal- Mart sells the exact same seat in the store as it does online, but in the store it is much more expensive.

No, it's a forward facing only car seat. If you are looking for a comparable car seat that faces rear too I would suggest the Graco MyRide 65. This goes rear facing to 40 pounds and forward to 65. Although that isn't as high as the Nautalis goes I can assure you that it will last until your child is at least 6 if your child is not way above average. I am currently using it for a 7 year old who is 55pounds and like it better than my Britax.
If you are set on getting a seat that rear faces and is a booster in this price range I would suggest the Evenflo Symphony or The First Years True Fit. One to steer clear of is the line from Dorel/Cosco/Eddie Bauer /Safety First(All the same company). They have a seat they refer as a 3 in 1 or Alpha Omega which says it goes to 100 pounds, it does't even come close! I stopped using it when my child was 4 b/c it wouldn't fit with the straps and the adjustable head rest was at the position where there would be minimal side impact protection b/c it went above the shell. Then even at 2 with a winter jacket it seemed like I was stuffing him in the seat. Sorry for the long post but I hopefully saved you some time and energy on car seat shopping. I wish someone had told me before I bought seats I ended up giving away long before my children outgrew them.
