What type of convertible car seat do you own? I need it to fit in a very compact 2 door car. looking for something comfortable for a big baby boy.

His current infant seat is good for 29" and 22lbs, he is 4 months old and 27" and 17lbs. I need a seat that is going to fit in my tiny 2 door car and be comfortable for him. Any advice on good car seat, and which to avoid are welcome.

  • I hear good things about the True Fit, but not sure if it would fit. BRU lets you try them in the car.

  • We got our son the Evenflo Titan. He loves it. He's facing forwards now but when he was rearfacing in it he fit really well into our intrepid.
