    Default What to get for a 2nd car seat for 7mth old?

    We need another car seat to go into our 2nd car.

    What is a good seat that's not too expensive? I've already got a sns premier as the main seat.

    I've seen some seats that say their from 6mth to 8yrs. I think infasecure do one? What are these like to use for a bub under 1? It would certainly be handy to not have to buy another seat when bubs is bigger.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what the 0-8 year seats are like, but I have the infasecure neon ($168 from big w) and its great! It's important for us to have our son rf for as long as possible and this seat has him rf still at almost 12 months - and he is super tall for his age. He still has heaps of room before he has to be turned

    When you say 6months - 8years you mean a convertible booster seat?
    I wouldn't recommend one of these for a child under 1. Even though they say "from 6 months" the seats are generally too big and too upright for children under 2 years. You're child probably wouldn't fit under the minimum requirement height marker anyway.
    They are also fairly expensive seats. For a similar price to one convertible booster seat, you could probably get an Infa Neon (which I would highly recommend too) and then a top-rated dedicated booster in a few years when your child outgrows the Neon.
    The Neon is affordable, easy to install and allows for maximum rear facing which the much safer option for babies and toddlers.
