Convertible car seat by Evenflo - highly rated for ease of use, comfort, and safety!

I wouldn't use this with a newborn since I wouldn't be comfortable with the amount of recline (not that much).

For my newborn, I went with an actual infant seat. But I really like this seat a lot. The harness is easy to do/undo, but hard enough for little hands to have difficulty I think (mine's not old enough or quite strong enough to really try yet).

The knob for tightening is very handy. When my baby was 7 months old, we were in a serious car accident. DH and I both ended up with minor injuries (me a broken hand, which was fun with a baby!). LO was in this carseat in back RFing as he was supposed to be. He didn't have so much as a bruise. You can imagine my absolute bawling relief that he was perfectly okay. The carseat definitely did it's job. My LO was probably 23-24 lbs at the time.

The seat wiggled a bit on it's base after the accident but otherwise looked fine. Yes, we disposed of it like you are supposed to, but we also replaced it with the exact same model. We have 2 of them. One for each car. Oh yeah, the accident was in an older car without the LATCH system, so the car seat was attached via the seatbelt method.

I second this car seat. I

I second this car seat. I used it from infancy, but to help with the recline placed a swimming noodle (cut to size) under the front of the carseat. This gave it the appropriate recline for an infant. Note: I added the noodle under the supervision and at the advice of someone who is trained to install car seats.
