We almost forgot to share this milestone! Earlier this month, we decided it was time to retire Avery’s car seat and upgrade to a big boy car seat. Avery was quickly approaching the 30″ height limit for his ‘stage 1’ infant car seat. So, we went shopping for a new ‘stage 2’ car seat.
Here’s Avery’s old & new car seats side by side – awaiting the switcharoo-
What a difference in size! Avery’s new car seat has side impact cushions and a cup holder! He can be in this car seat until he’s 100lbs! For now, he’s still little, so it’s in a ‘rear facing’ position in the backseat, but when he gets older, we can switch it.
Here’s the little man enjoying his upgraded seat!
Does Avery like his new car seat? It’s hard to say, because he hates being confined or restricted, so he cries and squirms whenever you try to put him in any seat… in the car or stroller. But once he’s in, he’s content. The only problem I have is that although I have it set to the most reclined position, when he falls asleep, his head tips over forward, which isn’t good for his neck. Can’t figure out how to resolve that issue… any ideas?
