Convertible Car Seat Shopping - Britax Roundabout





Leighton is almost 16 months old now, so a couple months ago, we finally decided we wanted to go ahead and retire from the infant car seat to a convertible car seat.  We were pretty lost and overwhelmed at first.  We are both first time parents, and there are SO many options out there, so many opinions and then so much contradicting and confusing information out there.  We decided to start with our favorite baby store that carries almost every baby brand you could ever want.  There were so many options, I wanted to see them all in person before just ordering online and hoping I liked it.  While out of town, I stopped by buybuy BABY to look at car seats.  I had already had a few friends recommend Britax, so I was pretty sure I wanted a Britax but wanted to make sure.  After looking at the selection in store, I ended up setting on the Britax Roundabout Convertible Car Seat.  It had good reviews, was still a good price, and Leighton could use it up to 55lbs.  We love this car seat.  We actually ended up getting 3 of them, one for each of us, and my mom got the same one too because she liked it so much.  Car seats can seem pretty expensive and overwhelming at first, but when it comes to your child's life, I think it's important to spend the extra time and money to get something that you feel is safe.   

Since it is recommended to rear face for at least 2 years, we have decided to do just that, especially since Leighton is fairly petite.  This car seat is made for children 5-40lbs rear facing and 20-55lbs forward facing.  If you're in the market for a car seat, buybuy BABY has one of the best selections and choice of brands.  They also have a handy car seat buying guide that I used to help me decided for sure which convertible car seat I wanted.  P.S.  If you're looking for more car seat safety information and tips, make sure you check out The Car Seat Lady or Car Seats for the LittlesWhich car seat did you get?  What was the deciding factor for the one you chose?

I got the graco milestone because the height was higher and we also plan to rear face but for as long as possible I'd love to make it to 3 just because the longer the better!! I love ours!

We have used this car seat for two years now and LOVE it! It doesn’t come with all the “bells and whistles” that some other Britax models have but it’s super easy to install, very solid, and very easy to get your child in and out of the seat, both forward and rear facing. The re-thread thing is no big deal for me, I’ve only had to adjust the straps twice in two years and it wasn’t hard at all. You won’t be disappointed!
