Convertible vs Infant Car Seat Trying to decide between purchasing a convertible car seat or an infant car seat is hard because there is no right answer. Both infant and convertible car seats have many benefits, as well as drawbacks! It truly comes down to personal preference. So, let’s get started. Number 1 Convertible car seats First things first, let’s discuss what a convertible car seat is. A convertible car seat is a seat your child will use from birth until they grow out of it. This means you will only need to purchase one seat, and you get the most bang for your buck! They are designed to rear face when your child is smaller, and then forward face when they grow. Number 2 Advantages As mentioned above, when you purchase a convertible car seat, you should never need to purchase another one as it should grow with your child, until they no longer need it. This means you will save yourself at least a few hundred dollars. Convertible car seats are designed to stay attached in your car, and have many different positions for your growing baby. Number 3 Drawbacks Well, did you know some hospitals won’t let you leave without an infant car seat? When giving birth, some hospitals require you to bring an infant car seat on the day of your discharge. Nurses like to ensure new parents are aware of how to properly buckle their baby into the seat. Number 4 Infant car seats An infant car seat is designed specifically for infants. They are used from the newborn stage until about 2 years old or until your child reaches the max capacity weight designated in each seat. These seats are much smaller and lighter than a convertible car seat, because they are designed to be carried to and from the car. Number 5 Advantages As mentioned above, a huge advantage of an infant car seat is the convenience of being able to keep your child in the seat, snuggly and warm, while you travel to and from the car.

Number 6 Drawbacks Cost and longevity could be considered drawbacks when considering an infant car seat. Since this seat will only last your child up to 2 years or the designated weight capacity, this may not be the most cost-efficient purchase. You will need to transfer your child to a new seat, thus spending more money and not getting as much use out of the infant car seat as you would if you purchased a convertible. Overall both infant car seats and convertible car seats are great options. They both pass the same safety tests before they are put out on the market, so either way you can ensure your child will be safe.
