    Convertible Carseats

    Advertisements
    So I am in search of a convertible car seat. My DH and I will be making the 3500 mile trip back to MA in 5 weeks, and want my DS to be comfortable. He is quickly outgrowing his infant carseat.

    So, What do you recommend? What brand do you find to be the best? (graco, safety1st, britax, etc)

    I found this one, and think it would suit his needs perfectly, but the reviews aren't perfect.

    The Graco signature is by far my favorite. LM has been in it since 11weeks. It adjusts easy, installs and uninstalls very easy. 0-100lbs up to 65lbs rear facing . Reclines which is great for droopy heads we tried others this is hands down my favorite.

    I got my baby girl the Diono Radian based on her size/weight. I am very happy with my choice (thank you Jamie *airmanssweetie* for the valuable advice).





    Child Weight: 5 to 100 lbs
    Standing Height: up to 57"

    High capacity convertible seat that is rear-facing to 40 pounds and forward-facing 20 to 65 pounds in a 5-point harness.

    The google link didn't work for me- But I went on babiesrus and looked at the signature seats! I like them. I'm glad you've had a good experience with them, too!

    Does that seat recline?

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    We LOVE our Britax Boulevard 70. It's a super easy seat to install and take the cover off of, it's comfy for Aubs, and it has a great safety rating

    We have the MyRide 65. I find it easy to install and adjust and Wyatt seems really comfortable in it (flew 8 hours in it in April and will be doing about 24 hours of flying sometime soon).

    The one that you posted is the one that we have for Aidan. We love it. He loves it. He's been in it for about 7 months and we've had no problems. It's also super easy to transfer between cars. . I'm excited y'all are coming back to the area.
