I decided that I want a convertible car seat so that my child can stay in the rear facing position for as long as possible, but it has to be one I can easily travel through the airport with. I’ve noticed that my sister had to buy a different car seat because the one she had was too heavy for her to lug around the airport. So it has to be light.
There are many parents that buy a different car seat for traveling. Some would rather just leave their car seat at home because they are too inconvenient to take with them to an airport. Fortunately, there are car seats good for everyday use and for traveling.
You need to have the information available to make an educated decision on which one to buy.
When traveling you want something lightweight obviously. The Safety 1st Guide 65 would come to mind as a good choice because it’s fairly light at 14 pounds. It would be easy for you to lug it around the airport without too many problems. It’s good for everyday use, not just when you are on the road or traveling. This seat will accommodate kids from 5 to 65 pounds. It’s very flexible allowing your kid to say in the rear facing position until they are 40 pounds.
It has removable parts making it easily washable. It also is fairly narrow making it good for small cars. You can fit 3 of these car seats in the back seat of many normal sized cars.
