I am looking for a Convertible Car seat that has a Handle and a base for UNDER $80 if possible!! My sister is going to buy it for me and I want to keep it under that because she is doing that for me!!! Any Idea's???? PLEASE help!! I have looked on Wal-mart and Kmart online and none of the convertibles look like they have a base nor a Handle...

Thank you in advance!!!!

I would ALSO be happy with a Infant car seat that has a base and handle if it would rear face longer... Like to 30-40lbs!! any Help there? Since I'm pretty sure Converts don't have those things!! LOL

Tough one. Here's a bump for you.


The one we have doesn't have a base/handle. We got it at Walmart for $40.

I fear it is not possble... I would also be happy with a Infant seat that would Rear Face longer (up to 30-40lbs) for under $80 but I'm having a hard time finding that... we only have 26 days til my C-section so I gotta find the one I want SOON!! LOL

Convertible car seats do not have handles and bases. Only infant seats. There are infant seats with higher rf'ing limits but they're usually outgrown by height first. You're also not going to find much in that price range. This is your best bet...

And not to be rude but there is a lot to know about car seats. It sounds like you need to start learning very quickly before your baby gets here.

The tallest infant seat with highest weight limit is the Safety 1st OnBoard which can be found for around $80 if you look.

Graco SnugRide is a rearfacing-only infant seat that goes up to 30lbs or 30", whichever comes first. It's ~$60. Evenflo Embrace goes to 35lbs, 30" and is $80. We had an Embrace when DS was younger and liked it, but getting the cover off for cleaning was a nightmare.
