my 4 month old has already outgrown his infant car seat
My 4 month old is 20 lbs and 28" long already. His current car seat holds up to 22lbs and 29" long, and he is quickly pushing the limits. I know I can get a rear facing seat that's good for up to 40 pounds, but what do I do if he reaches 40 pounds before being a year old? I know babies are supposed to be rear facing until a year (and maybe longer?), I can't be sure but I'm assuming he will be well over 40 pounds before he reaches a year old.
Just look for a convertible car seat that can go rear-facing. Convertible seats can hold up to an 85 lbs child, which will last well after your child turns two and can go forward facing :)
