SnS Compaq or Lifestyle.

I would not go Hipod Senator as too upright for your youngest when sleeping and you already have convertible booster for your eldest.

The Compaq is great. My large 4.5 year old was very comfortable in it right up until recently when my 6 month old got it. He is now rear facing in it and will be able to for ages yet.  I love it.

Steggles just wondering what your source is? I have heard the discontinued line for many years. It has been fabric changes, adding new speakers, change to 2010 height markers.

If it is being discontinued are they replacing with something else?

Argh! Stupid target! Looks like they were wrong - I haven't seen any of the new height marked ones anywhere! Maybe they gave me the info about the weight based ones??? Sorry for the confusion!
