Janelle also had reflux and despite zantac and reglan she had to sleep sitting up, she spent every night and nap in that infant seat for over 6 months.

We didn't buy an infant seat. We went with the convertible right from the get go. However, my inlaws picked up a couple of bucket type seats for us while we traveled. The hospitals in Louisiana give them to their newborns. I don't think you can buy them. It had a 20 pound weight limit, like most other infant seats. Ben out grew it a week or 2 after we got back from our trip. I was worried it wouldn't last. If you do buy an infant seat, go for one with a higher weight limit.

Our convertible is an Evenflo Titan with overhead shield. I don't recommend an overhead shield for a newborn. He was too tiny to fit well. A five point harness is safest, and I think it would be more comfortable for a little one. The shield also takes up a lot of space in the car.

Congrats on your new baby!

Just a note. My carseat was not the kind that comes out and has a handle. I used those kinds with my nephew and my friends baby. I'm 5 feet tall, and I was forever tripping over those darn things. I hated them! They were so heavy and awkward. I also believe that babies need to held as much as possible, and I wouldn't want to leave my little one in a hard plastic seat any more than necessary.
