You are having a baby. What could be more exciting? Now comes making some choices of what you need for the baby. There are only a few things that you actually have when you are having a baby. You need a place for the baby to seat, some kind of diapers and clothes, and you need a car seat.
What kind of car seat do you need? There are essentially 2 kinds of car seats when your baby is born. There is an infant seat and a convertible car seat.
If you are going for the biggest bang for your buck, consider a convertible car seat. A convertible car seat starts as a rear facing car seat for babies and as the child grows, it can be turned around into a forward facing car seat. Since it is a rear facing car seat at first, it works from birth. Some seats work until the child is 40lbs and some can go until the child has reached 80lbs, depending on the brand.
Some convertible car seats are known as a 3-in-1 and will work for all stages of car seats. It starts as a rear facing car seat, then turns around to a forward facing car seat, and then turns into a booster seat for kids up too 100lbs. Some 3-in-1 car seats are not made for rear facing, so be sure to read the manufactures instructions before using.
