Car seat help!

 I have a 2009 Chevy Malibu and I am trying to find a convertable car seat for my now 1 year old son. I would like to have one that goes from rear facing all the way to booster seat. There are soooo many options out there, and I don't know which ones are the safest or will fit in my car. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would stick with a RF to FF convertible. You can get an inexpensive booster later and the 3-in-1 seats are generally not as good as the convertibles.

What is your son's height, weight, shirt size? What is your budget?

The Headwise 70/ Size 4 me 70/ My size 70 Are all good seats. There are convertible RF to RF.. But honestly,most RF to booster seats don't make very good boosters. My daughter has a My size 70 and we LOVE it!

This.  Britax makes safe models.

Most places will let you try the model seat in your car to see if it's a good fit.
