The Best Convertible Car Seats: Reviews and Articles
We feel that the best convertible car seats, although more expensive, are a good buy for many reasons. The most obvious reason if that you only need to buy one seat instead of two.
Normally you buy a seat for your newborn and that will be the one you’ll use until the child is between 20-35 pounds. Car seats for children are meant to be rear facing until the child attains the 20-35 pound weight area. Then you buy another seat which is front facing and larger to fit your growing child.
The Advantage of the Convertible Seat
The advantage with the convertible is that you use it from infancy to probably 60-70 pounds depending on the seat. Yes they cost more but you only make one purchase instead of two.
In this section of the site, we’ve done one convertible car seat review on a seat we think is top notch and possibly will do a few more. We don’t do reviews unless we feel that it's worth looking at in depth.
We always check the seat out up close and personal and then look at the manufacturer and their track record for safety, comfort and whether it's well built.
Are Seat Owners Happy?
However another factor which we take very seriously when we consider a seat for review is customer satisfaction and user ratings. If users take the time to review car seats for children it means they usually either love or hate the product. Of course price is another important variable for us to consider when writing a review and recommendation.
The best convertible car seats are like all seats in that they aren’t perfect. That’s why when we do a convertible review, we point out the negatives that we can see and that users have experienced. If there are too many negatives of course, they don’t make the cut.
The Britax Boulevard Car Seat
We love the Britax Boulevard Car Seat for all the reasons we mentioned above. It’s a highly rated carrier for safety, comfort and is very stylish.
Users gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 stars rating which is very impressive. One user even talked about the fact that she had been in an accident with the seat and her child was unscathed. She was incredibly impressed. Check out our review and her story here.
We will be adding articles having to do with information that’s useful when you’re trying to make an informed decision between the best convertible car seats. We will sometimes not do a full convertible review on a model that we like for a certain reason or area that the seat shines in. It might have a feature that separates it from other seats in the safety or comfort area and we will point this out.
There are many seats for children and the buying decision isn’t always simple. The best convertible car seats are an option and we hope that our reviews, ratings and articles can help you decide if the convertible is for you.
