I currently like in the UK but in April we're moving to Texas and need to buy a new car seat for my 17 month old daughter. I want to buy her a convertible car seat (the Britax Marathon, fits 5lbs-65lbs, about $220) My thinking is that she can use this seat for the next year or so until we have our second child (we're planning for 2012) then we can get her a booster type seat and the new baby can use the Marathon. My husband would rather get a cheaper car seat for our daughter and then buy a brand new travel system for our next child. We have a travel system we used when our daughter was an infant and we liked being able to easily transfer the car seat from the car to the buggy without disturbing the baby. So my husband wants the travel system so it'll be easier to take the baby in and out of the car, but I think it's a waste of the buggy we already have. I want to bring that with us, and then just unbuckle the new baby from the car seat and place them in the buggy when we're out. Any thoughts on this? Is it a pain to have to transfer an infant from their car seat to their stroller when you're out and about?
