Our 5 month old has outgrown his infant carrier and I was wondering which convertible car seat you use!


I have a small car, 2005 Chevy Malibu. I've looked up the size4me 70 and the Myride and most of them seem really bulky. Or is that just me??

How long do you plan to keep him rearfacing? This factors into which seat to suggest.

None of mine are in convertibles right now, but my older girls were in Graco MyRides and my twins will go into either Clek Foonfs or Graco Size4Me70s.

He will be rear facing until at least 2

I would get a Size4Me70. It has a tall shell, so even if you decide to RF longer, it will last. It has 18" top harness slots so it will also last a long time FFing. Usually runs about $179, but has been found recently at Target for $53! Look for the boxes under the display shelves--they've been marked at $125 and ring up at $53.

I know. The girls are 3 and 5. There's no need for us to rear face them.
