Customer Questions & Answers for
Graco - Nautilus 3-in-1 Multi-Use Car Seat, Bravo

Nothing's more important than your child's safety. The Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Multi-Use Car Seat is designed for both versatility and safety, offering right-size comfort and protection as your child grows. The Graco Nautilus Bravo can be used as a harness seat, a high-back booster and a backless booster. As this car seat can be adjusted to accommodate the needs of children aged one ten, you can buy one Nautilus instead of a toddler seat, booster seat and backless booster. With one-hand head adjustable head support, this convertible baby car seat will meet all your growing baby's car seat requirements without compromising on safety. While the over-molded arm rests and 3-poistion recline ensures comfort, the open loop belt and EPS, energy-absorbing foam and 5-point harness ensure child safety. This 3-in-1 car seat also comes complete with a body pillow for further comfort. These seat pads are machine washable that make maintenance a simple task.

Question

Will this carseat work in a 1988 Buick that has no shoulder belts in the backseat?

Answers
answer 1
Yes. This carseat can be installed with the lapbelt only
IF the child is at least 1yr old, between 20-65lbs and between 27"-52".
If the child is smaller, you need a rear-facing seat.
If the child is larger, you need a booster, and a booster requires the shoulder belt.

answer 2
YES and NO
YES -- you MAY use a lap-only belt if the you are using the seat in HARNESSED MODE
NO -- you may NOT use a lap-only belt for either booster mode (high-back or backless), you must have a lap-shoulder combo to use a non-harnessing booster seat

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.

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!

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.

There has never been a documented case of child breaking their leg from rear facing and having their feet touch the seat. There are many cases of broken necks from forward facing a child that is too young - under 2 years old and 35 lbs.

answer 3
I would definitely wait till over age 2. Ideally, your child should remain rear facing as long as possible and this is a forward facing only seat.
For those that said their child's seat touch the back seat, just have them sit "indian style", they would be much more comfortable and still remain safest possible. I know it sounds odd, but there are 3 and 4 yr olds still rear facing by sitting this way.
To the Original poster, just get your son a convertible for now with a high weight limit for rear facing, there are some that go over 30 lbs now. Then when THAT seat is outgrown, you can forward face your son in the Nautilus safely.

That's the same problem I have my son is long and has completely outgrown his seat that was supposed to be good up to 26 lbs. He's 23lbs. and his feet rest on the seat of the car to the point that he has to bend his knees in his seat, I dont feel safe with him sitting like that. But at the same time everyone says to wait, I'm confused.

I would NOT use this seat for any 1 yr old. It is safest to keep your baby rear facing for as long as possible. There are many seats on the market that are a better fit for a small child. RF to 33-35lbs is safest. Look up rear facing viedos on you tube. Fet on the back of the seat are ok. He just needs a convertable. Check out the trufit.

It does take up space. If you are just trying to put 2 in one row of your suv they would certainly fit. With ours I can sit in the back of our Hyundai Santa Fe with the car seat one side of me and my oldest daughter (12 yrs old) on my other side. I hope that helped you! It really is a great car seat...I've been hit by a drunk driver with my daughter in it (now I have new one of exactly the same).
