Question Chicco netfit vs. britax



I am looking for a convertible car seat for my 13 month old daughter. I am trying to decided between the new chicco nextfit convertible and the britax pavilion. Which do you think is better? why? Or do you recommend another seat. Thank you in advance for you input.


She's wears a 18month onesie just because she's tall and thin, but I don't need it to last forever because I plan on using a seprate booster when she reaches that stage. I also would like to add that I need to have 3 across in the back my car (one booster for 6 yr old, a infant seat for newborn arriving in June, and this convertible).


Needing 3 across changes everything. You need to look at the big picture and choose a seat that will work in your 3 across. A Britax might or might not work, a NextFit might or might not work, and any number of other good convertibles might or might not work. What is the year/make/model of your car? If you're lucky, someone here might have experience with it and be able to help you figure out what combinations of seats will fit. Otherwise, your best bet might be going to a store with a large selection of seats (like Babies R Us or Buy Buy Baby) and trying things in your car. If you already have an infant seat and a booster that you would like to use, bring those along. Try a variety of convertibles in a variety of set-ups and see what fits. Once you find a combination that you like that seems to fit, then go ahead and install all of the seats (for the booster, check that there is room for it to be buckled) and make sure that they can be installed correctly when you're using all of them. (This is usually easier if you use seatbelts rather than LATCH to install.) You want the seats to be independently tight, which means that if you remove one seat, then the other is still tight.

I assume you do already have a booster for the 6 year old, do you have an infant seat that you plan to use? What are the seats?

What car?

Not the Britax for a tall child. Our tall long torsoed kids outgrew the classic bv (taller then the new version) rf just past 2y and ff before turning 4y.
