Ooh, this topic has been on my mind lately. We plan on getting a Britax Boulevard for sure but have been debating over an infant seat.
Anyone with positive or negative experience with having a newborn in a convertible seat?
Also, for those of you w/ DC's who are forward facing. Have you read in the Family Safety forum about extended rear facing? Unless your DCs are really tall, they can RF in the marathon until 33 lbs and are MUCH safer RFing.

Me. Full-time ,,x2 Momma. Part-time Doula & WAHM. Married to my bff USMC CWO2. Momma to the big M 11/06 -- the lil' C 09/08 and expecting our 3rd & last 12/12.
Mama, I'm not in your ddc, but I wanted to respond. From what I've read, thighs lifting off the seat does not mean that your dd needs to be FF. Many mamas on here have their kids cross their legs and keep them RF. If she's under the weight limit, you're probably fine to turn her back to RF. You might want to ask this question in the Family Safety forum. There are lots of CPSTs there who are very knowledgeable.
