Default Baby Carriers and Car seats

2 questions for this thread:

First:
I have a Bjorn that my son loves, but only because he can face outward in it. I've been reading all these things about how it can cause hip dyplasia and spinal problems, so now I'm a little freaked out. Are there any other carriers out there that you can wear the baby facing out? He hates facing in and will usually only do that if he is super tired.

Second:
I'm looking at car seats so I have on for when he outgrows the one that I already have. I give him 2 more months tops in the one I have. I've been looking at convertible car seats because a lot of them go up to 100 pounds, so it seems like a great money saver. Do any of you have one that you would recommend?

I have the Graco my ride and really like it. It's got a lot of cushion and reclines far enough for the little babies. Then when he gets older you can take out the extra cushion.

I love the Graco (myride), and I bought a Britax, I can't remember the model, I will have to go look. but it was on sale at Target on Cyber Monday so I got a great deal. Britax is a great brand but is usually REALLY expensive. These are the 2 I researched, and mentioned to my SIL

Sadly babies can't face outward without risking hip dysplasia

Depending on when he gains head control you can try a back carrier with a natural seat. Also, you can wear him on your hip in a Moby wrap or sling.

We have the Safety First Air Protect 65 and love it. What are your goals with a car seat? If you would like to extended rear face (American Pediatric Association currently recommends until at least 2 years old) there are seats for that. Some convertibles don't transition to boosters well enough so you have to buy another seat anyway. Not all convertibles will be the "last seat you'll ever need" like they promise.

You can also do a front facing in, hip and back carry with the Ergo. I have tried many, many carriers and the Ergo is my favorite but a lot of that has to do with the fact that it is easiest on my neck which I have a lot of problems with. My kids have liked the Ergo the best also.
