I'm messing with the idea of moving the girls to their convertible seats soon - still rear facing. They have not outgrown their infant seats yet but I have just one base for each seat. Instead of buying spare bases, why not just buy the next seats and keep them is Daddy's car so in case of an emergency, both cars are equipped to carry the babies.
It's still an idea floating in my head though. Here's a list of the websites with good information to help with choosing the right convertible car seats for babies
- Car seat recommendations for US and Canada. Also tells which carseats are FAA approved (can be used on the plane). The notes on each seat are quite informative
- Car seat measurements - To check if they'll actually fit in the car
- Carseat.org - The mothership of all things car seat. There are a lot of certified technicians on the forum willing to answer questions
- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ease of use ratings for car seats
