Thread: Long Car Ride

  1. #1

    Long Car Ride

    We are trying to decide of we should take our daughter's infant carseat or her convertible carseat on our 9 1/2 drive to Florida. Her infant seat seems to decline further but her convertible seems more "comfy." She is 9 months old.

    Provided she fits in either, both are options. It's 100% up to you. There's no difference in safety.
