My son will be 6 months old on August 15. He is 19lbs. 12oz. He was 29 inches long a couple weeks ago so I'm sure that he is longer now. I currently have him in a baby trend infant carrier. I just read the height/weight requires. He is still okay weight wise--it is 22lbs max. He is over on the height tho.--max is 28.5 in. I have a convertible car seat that can be rear facing for babies weighing 5-30lbs. The infant carrier is pretty small for him--it is hard to get him in and out of. A friend has an infant carrier that she said I can use (it has not expired yet) and it holds up to 30lbs. Should I use her infant carrier or go ahead and switch him to the convertible car seat? There are a couple reasons why I'm doubting switching him already--when I go grocery shopping, its nice to have him in the carrier. He is just starting to sit up and he is not very good at it yet so he probably wouldn't be able to sit in a cart. The only thing is on the rare occasion that he falls asleep I don't want to wake him, but 99% of the time he wakes up as soon as I put the carrier down anyhow. Any thoughts, comments, suggestions would be appreciated.
