  • Outgrowing the requirements of the infant seat. So look at what the infant seat says and if the child is too big, then you need to switch to convertable rear facing.

  • We had a convertible all along. We just changed seats when our son outgrew the first one.

  • They have to weigh at least 5lbs.

    I didn't even use an infant seat with my youngest. The infant seat is NOT required at any time.

    Put him in a convertible and use the infant seat for shopping, at a restaurant, in the stroller....just not in a car.

  • There are none :D

    You can put a newborn in a convertible so long as they meet the minimum weight requirements, which is usually 5 pounds.

  • Newborns can ride in a convertible as long as the straps are at or below the shoulders, just try your baby out in different seats, make sure baby fits...Myride 65 nd Truefits fit smaller babies better.
