The Car Seat
It’s easy to build up a lot of baby gear. So when you find something that multitasks (and cuts down on the mountain o’ plastic), it can feel like a big parenting win. Convertible car seats are just like that.
A convertible car seat starts in a rear-facing position for babies, and then can be switched to a front-facing position for older children. Many can even be used as a booster seat for school-age children. (Some parents prefer to buy a separate booster to maximize back-seat space or use their convertible for a younger sibling.) They can take you from day one through the preschool years and beyond.
