: My DS is turning 1 in a couple of weeks & it'll be time to put him front facing. We have a Alpha Omega Carseat by cosco. Anyone know about the teather strap. Do you have to take it to a dealer to install or has anyone done this themselves following the intructions. They seem kind of hard to follow. What about a booster seat if he's in someone else's car. Or does it have to be a carseat with a high back? They have so many product on the market, its all overwhelming!! What does everyone else have?
I have the AlphaOmega too. I look at the teather strap and then looked at the directions, and I have no idea what to do with it. Right now our DS is still rear facing. We have LATCH in our car but didn't use it. I am thinking about contacting cosco about the strap. I'll let you know what I find out. Also, I think for now your son still needs to be in a regular car seat. The directions say 20-40 lbs for forward facing toddler, 30-40 lbs for the auto booster.
