Convertible Car Seats
A convertible car seat can be used on a baby as small as 5lbs; however, there isn’t as much neck support compared to the infant car seats. This car seat can be used for a longer period of time, so if you are on a strict budget, then this car seat may be the best option for you. Your baby will be able to go home from the hospital in this type of car seat and it is safe for them. However, it isn’t portable and if your baby falls asleep you will have to wake the baby in order to get them out of the car seat. This seat can be used for toddlers as well; in fact, the American Pediatrics Association recommends that your child face the rear of the car for the first two years or when they reach the maximum height and weight restrictions per the car seat manufacturer. This seat can also be used as a front facing car seat once your child meets the height and weight restrictions. A convertible car seat is designed to grow with your child.
They have a level so that you can confirm that the car seat is installed correctly. It also has a 5 point harness and straps that can be moved easily.
