My little bean is not yet ready for a convertible seat but I'm starting to think about it. I'm big on car safety since my father died in a car accident nearly 30 years ago. I ALWAYS wear my seat belt, etc.
Anyway, my daughter is 3 months old and maybe 12 lbs. She presently rides in a Graco SnugRide (the one that goes to 22 lbs). I had done research while preggo (before discovering the boards here on iV) and found it had really great safety reviews. I'm very happy with it so far.
I'm sure Willow will always be within the weight limits longer than most kiddos (she's a petite little thing at 10th percentile) and also because she's so little I want to make sure I keep her rear facing as long as possible.
My concern is her comfort. We sometimes drive from our home in MA to NJ or NY to see family. It's usually a 4 to 5 hour drive. It doesn't happen that often but when it does... Well, I'm sure you understand :)
What should I be worrying/thinking about as I wade through all these options? What brands have the best reputations?
I know I'm ahead of myself but I like to be prepared. DH and I are all about the research :)
Thanks so much!!!!
