We had the Chicco Nextfit 30 and we switched her to the Grace Extend2Fit 3-in-1 at 5 months. She started to hate the infant seat. If I could do it again, I would have skipped the infant seat and went straight to convertible because I baby wear. I basically had her strapped into the Tula for the first six months. I chose the convertible that I did because it’s one of the most compact seats that rear faces the longest, but I originally wanted a different seat. I would try and go to a store that lets you try the seat in your car before you decide.
