As any parent knows, when a baby arrives, it is important to make cost-effective purchases. From strollers to cribs, high chairs to car seats, the budget can quickly go out the window without research and planning. Instead of purchasing an infant seat that needs replacement once an infant reaches a certain weight, a convertible car seat lasts longer and keeps more cash in consumers' pockets, as slight adjustments allow the car seat to meet children's needs as they grow. When choosing the best convertible car seat, looking into some of the top models can help parents determine which purchase can best meet their needs.
