They have both at Target. Both are nice. You can't go wrong either way.

I don't have experience with Britax, but the Nextfit will last your child longer RF. Installation and adjustment are stupid easy on the Nextfit! Check Albeebaby for their current 20% off Chicco sale (free shipping, no sales tax).

Re: Comparing Nextfit vs Britax Maraton for a NB

from what i've read I like the nextfit better for a newborn. the harness slots are very low with newborn insert in it. Not sure but think bitax requires purchasing an additional infant insert to adjust the baby to the harness slots. Also I liked that the nextfit had more seat depth=more leg room rear facing.we won't be doing a bucket this itme either and going straight to a convertible and we decided on the nextfit. just bought it off albeebaby 20% off yesterday!!

Britax is outgrown really quickly with a taller child, just FYI...

So the Nextfit from Albee baby with 20%, comes to $223.99 ( vs $279.99) that's a good deal, almost 60$ in savings... loving the Rose color. Anyone have experience with Albee? Reading very bad reviews about this companies customer service..tia

also wanted to add, that if you end up hating the harness pads which was the major negative i kept finding in reviews chicco now has replacement pads on their website.
