I have a friend who wants to use a convertible from birth. I'm so out of the loop now-a-days. :eek:

Can somebody give me a good list?

I know:

CCO
TF/TFP


What else? :eek:

First Years True Fit, Combi Coccoro, the Britax seats will require the infant positioning wedge, but they do work.

I've said it before but my newborn (7 lb 7 oz) had a frighteningly bad fit in the TFP. Like, the straps are so wide set you could pull her whole torso up and out of it with the straps all the way tight. She fit great in the Boulevard with infant foam.

Yeah I really didn't like the noob fit in the True Fit either but other people seem to love it. And I had a 10 lb baby who is still built like a linebacker :confused:

Yeah, even now I am not crazy with how wide set the straps are on her. One of the reasons it's sitting in the basement.

And I will say a big noob like 8.5+ lbs would likely not even need the foam with the Britax. That lowest position is pretty low. You'd just have to take the HUGS off.

I had a 7-something at discharge newborn who fit in the tfp like a dream. Better than her sr22 so we used her brothers tfp.

Must have something to do with shoulder width?

See I just don't get it, my DD (the 10 lb one!) her shoulders were the widest part of her! She's a total beefcake. I felt like the straps were too wide when she was even a couple months old. Couldn't get a good fit with or without the infant insert. I let the in-laws drive the van once and she came back with the straps basically hanging off her shoulders because they didn't painstakingly adjust it every time. But it seems to fit other peoples kids fine, so idk.

Yeah, it's a mystery to me also.

There's apparently a new version of the MySize/Size4Me called the Headwise 70. It has Safety Surround headwings, a bulked up infant insert, and is rated from 4 lbs. instead of 5. http://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=headwise+70&category=0|All|matchallpartial|all+categories

The Size4Me/My Size start at four pounds. Always has. I think everything rear facing that Graco makes now starts at four pounds. They shifted over the past year or so. The Snugride 30 has always been four, but the 35 came out with a "new" version that was from four. The My Ride switched to four (I believe all the new My Ride 70s are four). The Size4Me is four (the name is actually really clever. Size4Me 70. From 4-70 pounds). The Classic Ride is four. Their new click connects are from four.
