OK, this may be a dumb question but...I'm looking to buy a convertible car seat for my 4-1/2 month old son who is already 21 pounds. I know with our first son, we bought an Evenflo Triumph and the installation instructions said to place a rolled up towel under the car seat when installing if needed to properly install the car seat and keep it level. For some reason, this bothers me. It seems like it would make the car seat LESS safe. So my question is...Are there convertible car seats out there that are built in such a way that this is never necessary, or does it depend on your car and how the seats are angled, if you KWIM?
in my back seat the pool noodle doesnt fit right and i haveto wrap it in a blanket and it still doesnt get tight enough. babies r us has a wedge that will fit in the crack of your car seat and then the car seat sits on that and i was todl that is safer than the noodle. i'm in the process of tryign to find a convertable car seat that fits in my back seat and am having a lot of trouble but i plan to buy the wedge forthe new car seat. hope that helps
