Car seats

Any suggestions on toddlers best/comfortable car seats? Want to invest in something well worth for my soon to be 2 year old. Don’t get me wrong he has 1 from Walmart but we want dad to have 1 in his car too. Thanks

    I always have to recommend the Graco 4ever car seat; it’s a great investment. I remember doing so much research on car seats and deciding on investing in a car seat that will grow with my child. We have 2 of those seats, one for each child and we plan on getting one for our 3rd. It’s cheaper now than when I first purchased one in 2015 and more styles are available. It’s a very comfy seat, according to my older son, and goes from 4-120lbs. It also has a life of 10 years, whereas most car seats will expire at 6 years. My 2 year old (95th percentile in height) is still rear-facing comfortably in this seat as well. It’s super easy to adjust the harness; you just slide the headrest up/down. You can check it out before you decide on purchasing it, at pretty much every large retailer (Walmart, Target, Bed Bath Beyond, Buy Buy Baby). I usually wait to buy it online with Target’s 25% off deal or car seat trade in, or buy from Buy Buy Baby with 20% off.

    Hi April!! Back when I was looking for the convertible car seat my pediatrician told me that the best seat is one that fits in your car and fits your budget...that car seats all have to pass really stringent safety tests now so not to stress and just get one that works!! You’ll probably get a lot of good suggestions on here but I wanted to let you hear this advice because it was good for me to hear!!!

    Having said that, we use the grace milestone and it works great!!!

    We have the graco4ever in my car and the graco milestone in my husband’s. I second what Julie said about all car seats being safe so you really just have to find what fits your car and budget. We just really like Graco

    We have the graco 4ever and the graco 4ever extend2fit. Both are great. I also have a carseat safety page on my blog that lists 40+ different seats in different price ranges (not just convertibles, but still helpful).
