Everyday Jaxon seems to be growing up. It breaks my heart, but it's heartwarming at the same time. He's slowly weaning himself from the bottle (today he's only had 1), he's eating more and more table food instead of baby food, but the one that seems to break my heart the most is when he outgrew his infant car seat. I loved his car seat, I bought it in either February or March of last year, I fell in love with it, green, blue and yellow. Here I am tearing up just writing about it. Jaxon outgrew this car seat a lot sooner than I wanted him too, he's a big boy, already 21lbs when he was 10months and infant car seats are only rated to 22lbs. I searched for a convertible car seat because he wasn't old enough to go forward facing yet. I had emailed my contact for Learning Curve knowing they sell The First Years products, including car seats. She offered to send me the True Fit Convertible Car Seat to review.
I think my favorite thing about this seat is how easy it is to adjust the straps. The weather has been insane here so one day he's bundled up in thick clothes and the next he's wearing next to nothing, which affects how the straps fit over him. All I have to do is push a button on the bottom and pull the straps to loosen them, or pull the strap that's under the button to tighten them! True Fit Convertible Car Seat is also great because he's not straight up, he's a little reclined, so when he falls asleep his head don't fall forward.
In the end, I love this car seat! It's can fit a baby/child from 5 to 65lbs and up to 50" tall, so I'll get plenty of use out of it. For the price ($189.99 at Babies R Us) I think The First Years True Fit Convertible Car Seat is well worth it for the amount of time you can use it.
