Questions about infant and convertible car seats
Hi everyone - FTM here and a bit overwhelmed thinking about car seat options, so would love some advice! We are looking into infant car seats, and the new Clek Liing is the one that fits best in our (tiny) car. However, it’s insanely expensive and we’re not sure it makes sense to spend that much on something that she may only use for 6 months (possibly up to a year). Our other option is using a hand me down Chico KeyFit 30 for free for 6-9 months and then switching her to a convertible car seat that we love and will be willing to splurge on because it will last longer. Questions: when did you switch from infant to convertible car seats? It sounds like there may be some flexibility where she’s still fit in the infant seat but could also fit into the convertible, but is switching early going to be annoying because then we can’t easily put her in the car seat in a stroller, in Uber’s, on planes, etc? Those of you with convertibles who travel a lot, how do you manage? Thanks in advance for any and all thoughts!
