When we were pregnant the first time, I remember creating our registry and worrying over every piece of safety equipment. The car seat was probably the biggest purchase (aside from the crib) and we would need at least two. We ended up with a third to put in my mom’s car. Our son was in a convertible car seat from day one (aside from the couple of weeks we used an infant car seat a friend had given us. It didn’t really work with our lifestyle then.)
(My sweet boy in his car seat when he was around 2 years old.)
We registered for the Graco MyRide 65, and almost five years later, our son still uses the seats daily. They’ve been so great for us. He was rear-facing for over two years, before we finally turned him around.
Our daughter is in an infant car seat. It was easier to get the one seat and multiple adapters for the seat. I’m already thinking about when we’re going to move her into a convertible seat, and planning out our purchases.
Over the next several months I’ll be sharing more information about my favorite products. We’ve been using them for 5 years so far, and we have many more years to come!
