UPDATE: I am still car seat shopping, this is a big decision but one I need to make soon since Wiggle is officially to tall for her infant seat.
I was leaning towards the Britax Marathon car seat but one of my readers suggested the RECARO Signo car seat( I have never heard of this seat before).
Does anyone have experience with either of these car seats?
Maybe I should get one of each since I have to buy two (one for me and one for daycare).
Who would have thought that car seat shopping would be such an ordeal. Not me, that is for sure.
Before Wiggle Bean was born we found a Graco travel system on sale a Target. It included the Snugride car seat and a full size stroller. It was a cute pattern and a great price so we bought it with out thinking much about it. I ever even thought about what I would do when she got a little bigger. The Snugride fits until 22 pounds and 29 inches. This is my first baby so I had no idea how quickly they grew but figured this would last at least the first year and probably even longer.
Wiggle is 9 1/2 months and weighs around 18 pounds. So that should give us another good 5 pounds, per the manufacturer, before she is too big for her infant seat, right? WRONG!!! I gave birth to a bean pole. She is already at (past) the 29' height recommended limit for the seat.
So now the research begins to find the safest most comfortable seat available. We would like our next seat to last for a while so we are putting a little more effort into the search. I found some great sites that rate convertible car seats.
After much research I have narrowed it down to 5 (in no particular order)
Britax Marathon and Boulevard
Graco My Ride 65
Safety 1st Complete Air and Alpha Omega Elite
Every where I look tells me different things about which one is rated the best so I am turning to you, my readers to tell me your experiences.
Which seat worked best for you and what features did you like or dislike?
