Convertible car seats have a wide range of benefits for you and your little one. A convertible car seat can be setup in a rear-facing position for babies, and then can be switched to a front-facing position for older children. This means you get to keep your seat longer and enjoy more value from it. And besides the obvious convenience, convertible car seats also allow you to keep your child rear-facing for as long as possible. Experts recommend keeping children rear-facing until they are two years old (or longer, if possible).
It’s quite possible to get a convertible car seat that works from birth (with an infant insert and a rear-facing position) and for some parents, this is ideal. For others, they may enjoy the ease of which they can remove and carry the infant car seat and want to wait to get the convertible seat until their child outgrows the infant seat. Nonetheless, convertible car seats are easy to use, easy to install, and come with safety features like a five-point harness and side-impact protection.
