Ever since my little sister, Ally, was born I have hated the infant car seat. The one where you can carry your baby everywhere. Letting them swing from one side to next and back and forth. Yes, they have their advantages. You don't have to take a sleeping baby out of the car seat to go into a store, you have somewhere to keep them if you go out to dinner, etc. But they also have there disadvantages. The baby gets to go for a ride whenever someone is carrying them, the kid outgrows it by the time they are 6 months old, and the older they get, the heavier it is. So, I have decided against that kind of car seat. I may change my mind as the time passes and the bigger I get but as for now I am sticking to my guns.
This car seat also gets great safety ratings (another reason I wanted the Britax) and amazing customer reviews. Hopefully when the little blob comes, they like it to!
