In this article we will give you a convertible car seat that you can take your baby home from the hospital in and use in the rear facing position until your baby is at least 2 years old.
In the past parents looking to skip the infant only car seats didn’t have very many options. Your baby will outgrow the infant car seat pretty fast causing you to have to spend money on another car seat sooner than you might have hoped.
Thankfully, today there are quite a few convertible car seats with weight requirements as low as 5lbs. That means that if you pick the right car seat you can use it from birth all the way up until they have graduated to a booster.
The Chico Nextfit is actually your best bet when it comes to getting a convertible that will accommodate a newborn. It has a weight requirement of just 5lbs. The weight limit for the rear facing position is 40lbs meaning you can use it in that position at least until the child is 2 years old.
This particular car seat has a few different recline positions and has an infant insert that seems to be convertible for newborns.
