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.

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.

The state i live in wants my 9 month old son to stay in a rear facing car seat until he is 2yrs old and if i get pulled over or if the state some how find out that he's under 2 n in a front facing seat i could get in alot of trouble with the law. But my son is currently 22lb & 30in long n is to big for his rear facing seat and God only knows how big he'll be by the time his 1st birthday let alone is 2nd. Plus i REALLY dont want to buy a bigger rear face car seat when im just gonna buy a front face seat in a year from now.

No this car seat is not approved for rear facing. There are car seats similar to this one that are approved for rear facing so that you won't have to buy another one. There are studies to show that an infant should remain rear faced until at least 2 yrs of age and in some countries that's the law. One product is the Graco My ride 65. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure what state you live in but I couldn't find one that has a law that a child MUST be in a rear facing car seat until after their 2nd birthday. It's a recommendation but not a law. I'd dbl check with your local pd. To answer your question, no this car seat is not a rear facing car seat.

This is only a forward facing seat. Your 9 month old should still rear face.(most states they must rear face till 1 AND 20lbs) You should look at a convertible car seat this way you can keep him rear facing till 2 or 40lbs(I say 40 cause allot of the convertible seats go to that weight. If he reaches 2 before 40 then if you want you can turn him forward(it is safest rear facing) and keep him in that seat till he reaches the weight limit. I had something like this one just different print. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Cosco-Scenera-Convertible-Car-Seat-Marianne/20753140

This is not a rear facing carseat. Usually states have a weight/height requirement in addition to age. Your son might meet the size requirement to use a forward facing seat. My state is the same way, but it is one year old and/or 21 lbs. My children meet the weight, but not the age. Both of them were in forward facing seats before one year old. However, this is a wonderful seat to buy when you do get a forward facing seat.

I bought my Nautilus the week they hit the shelves for my then 4 year old daughter. At the time, it was the only carseat, aside from the large and expensive Britax Regent, tall enough for my daughter to use. She is off the charts heavy and tall and hit the harness weight limit and the height limit right at her 5th birthday.

My middle daughter who is now 4 uses the seat with lots and lots of room to grow. She is 40" tall and weighs 35lbs. I estimate that she has at least 2, maybe even 3 or 4 years before she outgrows the harness.

I know the seat has an adjustable headrest. To go into a high back booster a child is supposed to be 38', and the height adjusts taller from there, so I would say this would be a good option for you. The adjuster is easy to use and adjusts with one hand!

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.

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.
