  • Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Carseat
  • Infant seat. I dont see a point to wake a sleeping newborn to bring it into the grocery store, resturant, etc. We opted for the Graco snug ride 30 that starts at 4lbs since we will more than likely have smaller babies.

  • We have one that goes from infant to until they're old enough for a booster. I'm just way too cheap to buy two seats. It is a pain to take baby in and out of the seat, but I baby wear, so it really turns into NBD, and it's better for their little backs to not constantly be in the car seat.

    But go with what will work for you... :)

  • Newborn carrier type seat, Chicco KeyFit 30 to be exact. My sister is a CPST and this is her favorite seat because it's so easy to install and offers great protection.

    Most infant carriers go up to 25 or 30 lbs, so you should get at least 9mos of use out of it. Chances are you won't have a 9m/o that weighs that much, but at 9-12 mos they get long enough that they outgrow the height limits of an infant seat

    We plan to purchase the Chicco NextFit, (Chicco's new convertible seat,) after the new year begins. We considered buying one now (either the Next Fit or the Diono Radian) but since we know we won't use it for a while we wanted to wait, so we're not wasting an entire year of the seat's expiration sitting in a box in our garage. You will need a convertible seat eventually, but the longer you wait to buy it the longer you will be able to use it before it expires.

    Yep, us too.

    ...and I agree with the pp about not buying the convertible until you need it.  No need to "waste" months/year of the expiration.

    Infant - Graco. I'm not a big baby wearer so it was a better option. I also liked it for winter because I could put little one in and bundle her up before going out in the cold. I was always afraid I would drop her if I had to carry her in and out on the ice and such.

    This is what we got, too.

  • Borrowed the infant seat from a trusted family member. Dh and I are both pretty tall and baby is measuring that way. Wanted spend more money on a better convertible seat that she would be in longer.

  • We are getting the infant car seat for my car and the convertible car seat for my DH car.  We were thinking the infant car seat when our LO is really small, but since he would need the convertible car seat anyway when he get a little bigger.

  • Graco Snugride Click Connect 35 that will click into a Graco stroller infant car seat FRAME...ideal for transitioning a sleeping baby from car to shopping plaza, etc.

  • With our second we started with the convertible and I wore her . It worked out great for her since she hated the car seat so she was never asleep when we got somewhere . When we found out we were expecting our third we got a carrier since juggling three small kids can get tricky at times . This time around were planing on using our third child's carrier a Combi shuttle till this baby is old enough to go into a convertible . We got a year out of the carrier the last time.

  • With DD, we used an infant seat for the first year, then switched to convertible after that. Plan to do the same with DS.

  • I'm the oddball. I hate the freaking infant seat. It's so heavy that I always left it in the car and wore DD anyway. She out grew the length limits by 9 months- I found it to be a giant waste of money and plastic for such a short time span. 

    At 3 DD has just reached the weight limit on it, so the newer, larger ones just just dumb.  And when you consider the poor positioning they put babe in its far from an ideal place to leave a sleeping baby.

  • Infant. I will babywear but times when it's just me, LO, and DD I can see it being helpful.

  • I'm a minimalist with baby stuff, but I went with the infant seat and I'm glad I did. It was awesome in cold weather, awesome to contain him at restaurants, awesome to let him keep napping when we arrived somewhere...  it was so worth it to me - and I baby wear a lot too.

  • I bought both already. Instead of buying an extra 50 base for our other car, we are putting the convertible seat in 1 and infant seat in the car we use most.
