Isn't it remarkable how children grow, quite literally, overnight? The infant car seat that my son fit in on Friday, was too snug by Saturday. I knew the time was coming to transition to a convertible car seat and I should have been shopping before now.
Have you heard the new recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics on car seat safety? They say children should remain rear-facing in their car seats until age two. It's not easy, in fact, it's a total pain. Obviously though, safety is more important than convenience. When I think of the higher risk of spinal cord injuries and other serious injuries for little ones facing forward, I can deal with rear-facing for another year.
So, we are in the market for a convertible car seat. We are looking for one with a high weight limit so he can be in it
Before I buy a seat, does anyone have any recommendations for a convertible car seat they LOVE? Also, where do you shop for the best price on car seats? I always love to get recommendations before buying so I would appreciate your comments!
