New carseat for DS — The Bump
Babies: 6 - 9 Months

New carseat for DS

So DS is just 6 months and is a TANK. He is in 12 month clothes and his shoulders are so broad that he barely fits in the carrier he is currently in. I don't feel comfortable leaving him in this one. I can buckle it just fine but he is so wedged in there! What suggestions are out there? I started my research but my head is spinning from all the requirements/measurements/expiration dates on car seats these days. DD is in a convertible and since that is all we have ever known we have nothing to compare it to...we may just invest in another. What are your suggestions?

Re: New carseat for DS

  • How old is your DD? Can you give her convertible to the baby and buy her some sort of convertible/booster combo seat that has a 5 point harness? That's what we will do for DD. We are looking into a Britax Frontier 90 for DS - he's a little over 3 and 40 lbs though so he's ready for a combo seat. No point in buying another convertible if my older kid will need to transition out of his soon.

  • @bigboobsmcgee she is 2 years old. she is only about 25 pounds so not ready for a booster...I guess I didn't know that the convertible had a booster combo! ill look into the weight

    My 3 year old isn't ready for a booster either but there are combo seats that you could check out. That way your older child can stay in a seat for quite a few years.

     

  • ok NOT saying we are getting this but I stumbled upon this and I don't even understand how this is on the market! isn't the point of a safety seat to....oh I don't know...provide safety?
