When I had my son, I was gifted a Graco Snugride but passed that on to someone else when we got our TFP.
Now I am pregnant again and need to buy a new infant seat... I'd ideally get a Graco since we have the adapter for our stroller (though we rarely use the carseat on the stroller, pretty much only in airports to make wheeling the car seat easier).
Any suggestions? I'm not really worried about price, more about ease of use. Is it worth getting the Snugrides that last longer than 22 lbs? Does it actually come in handy past that stage (which my son had hit by 7 months), or only in terms of travel/cabs (since it's so quick/easy to carry and install)? By 7 months my son didn't seem to love that seat so much anyway, and was much happier when we put him into the TFP. We will be traveling internationally a few times before the baby is 1, so an easy infant seat with a higher weight might not be a bad thing.
Any other recs?
ETA: The only other issue is how it will fit with the TFP, whether we will be able to put the infant in the middle and TFP on the side and have there be (a teenty tiny bit of) adult room next to the infant if needed, or leave the middle open and not have the option of an adult in the back. Would these 2 bases fit next to each other? Our back seat is very roomy.
