KOKOPAX TOP PICK
The primary issue with car seats is that it is quite a struggle to install them and involves heaving and tugging in order to get them properly secured in place. This is not the case with NextFit however. It features two bubble level guides that indicate when you’ve done it right and are situated on both sides of the car seat. Other than having nine recline options, it also fits inside a large range of cars as compared to other seats. There is also a slightly different version available for a little extra splurge- the NextFit Zip which comes with a seat pad that can simply zip off for cleaning, as well as an insulated cup holder.

With the joys of parenthood come a lot of responsibilities for which you have to gear up. This task may get daunting so it always feels liberating when you find a product that multitasks and makes life easier for you. A convertible seat is one such example.

A convertible car seat is for babies and is placed facing the rear and later flipped so it faces the front for older children. At times a convertible seat can even be substituted as a booster seat. However, because using an infant car seat is so much easier and convenient, it is the first choice of parents and then they gradually shift to convertible car chairs. You will be needing it anyway at some point, so might as well get a convertible car seat.

Britax Boulevard G4.1 Convertible Car Seat

So Which One Will You Get?

As you’d test out infant car seats, make sure that you test the convertible car seat you intend to purchase and that it fits perfectly in the backseat of your car. You won’t be squandering your money and this way even in case this product does not work the way you hoped, you can get it exchanged easily and have the replacement installed just in time for your baby’s arrival.

Remember to consider the following questions once the convertible car seat is placed in the backseat of your vehicle:

  • Is there room for your baby’s legs in the front?
  • Are the harness straps easy to adjust from the rear-facing side?
  • Are you 100 percent sure that you have installed the seat properly?

These questions can be answered and issues can be addressed by opting for another car seat model. Take this slow as your child may be at an age where he is unable to inform that he feels uncomfortable. Have a safe and happy journey!
