I have been trying to research convertible car seats, because I suspect that my 7 1/2 month old son will be too big for his rear-facing infant car seat soon. He weighs about 20lbs now and the seat restriction is 22lbs so he is really close already.
I want something that I can use as long as possible, especially if I end up spending a large sum of money on it. After reseach I have discovered that it is best to keep a baby rear facing as long as possible because they are less likely to be killed in a car accident. This being said I would like to buy a seat that can be used up to 35lbs rear-facing.
I want something safe and neutral because I plan on reusing it within the next couple years for a 2nd child. Please help me if you can. Oh and one more thing I own a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am and I did noticed that certain seats won't fit properly in all cars so if anyone has the same car let me know what worked for you!!
Thank you so much for your input in advance!
