Question Best Convertible Car Seat for Small Car



Hi all! Please please please help me choose the most compact convertible seat for small car and tall hubby. Looking for 2, one for my 10 month old and 1 for my 3 year old, so has to be compact rear facing (front to back). I've looked at Chicco Nextfit, Britax Boulevard, Marathon, so many more. Help me! :) TIA!


Hello and welcome to! A good place to start is the carseatblog post comparing front-back space of various convertible seats. It would also be a good idea to try seats in your car if you can! Usually stores like Babies R Us will let you take display models of seats out into the parking lot to try them in your car (and to try sitting your child in them too). If you go that route, take your time to read the manual, install the car seat, and put it through its motions to decide which one you really like best.

If you have more questions, we are happy to try to help!
