Do You Need a Convertible Car Seat?
A convertible car seat begins in a rear-facing position for newborns, and then can be changed to a front-facing position for older children. Some can also be used as a booster seat for school-age children. (Some parents buy a separate booster to increase back-seat space or use their convertible for a younger child.)
Britax Boulevard ClickTight Convertible Car Seat
New parents want all the extra assurance they can get. This car seat offers superior safety and peace of mind with two layers of side impact protection, a sturdy steel frame and an impact-absorbing base that constricts to reduce the force of a collision. Better, you’ll always know when the harness is just right, due to the Click & Snug indicator which makes a solid click sound when it’s been correctly tightened. The no-rethread harness is simple to adjust and has many positions that grow with your child. This one is also simple to install with a seat belt.
