Re: Infant seat or straight to convertible?
Given that it will be winter and Feb tend to be the coldest month here I'll definitely be reusing DS's infant seat with a cover on it to keep the baby nice and warm! Overall I'm not a huge fan of the bucket seats and I don't really use them in the stroller but I might use it a little more with this one given the weather. DS was born in May so cold was not a factor until he was much older.
If you want to go straight to a convertible, be very picky about which one you get. They are not all created equally for NBs. Plus, a NB shouldn't be more upright even in a convertible seat so that really should be the same regardless. Look for a seat that has extra padding for NBs and a deep enough recline. There are a few out on the market now that really are made to be used with a NB.
