My little one is 5 months old and quickly getting tired of her infant seat, she wants to sit up more, and I’m not hauling her around in it anymore since the seat/baby combo is getting mighty heavy. I knew the time was approaching to switch her to a convertible car seat but was not looking forward to shelling out the cash for another car seat.
A great and affordable option is the Graco Extend2Fit This is a great seat as it’s convertible and will fit your child up to when they are ready to transition to a booster seat. Personally I chose this seat. It also doesn’t take up a lot of space which is perfect for those of us with smaller cars. This seat also comes recommended by car seat aficionados. You can read their review of the seat here.
Another great option is the Graco 4Ever car seat. This seat is a 4-in-1, it’s good for infants and up through older children that just need a booster seat, however, it’s likely the seat will expire before your child gets to stage 4 if you use from birth onwards. You could simply buy a backless booster seat once your child is ready for it, but it’s an option if you want a truly long lasting seat.
This seat also comes recommended by Car Seats for the Littles. You can read the review for this seat here.

If you need more information about safely installing your car seat please check out the Car Seats for the Littles page or Facebook group or find a certified car seat tech near you to inspect your install. Having a properly installed seat and rear facing as long as possible can be the difference between life and death in a car accident. Also be sure to check the expiration dates on your seat and replace the seat after any accident.
