Re: What is the smallest (weight wise) baby that you would put into a convertible Bri

My 36 weeker was a reasonable size (6lb4oz) and I would not have wanted to put him in a convertible. He was swimming in the Graco Snugride. I had to prop him up with a tightly rolled washcloth.

I can't believe I actually found a picture, but here it is

ETA: OK, just realized we have the roundabout, not the advocate. So I don't know. He did not fit the roundabout until 4 months old, fwiw. I think he would have fit in a scenera or radian at birth, but we never tried.. anyway, now you have a reference picture of a 6 ish pound baby in a bucket seat :P

I agree. That's what we are going with. They have two different versions do make sure you pick the one with the tiny fit system. When i.saw it in the store i was impressed with the cushiness of it.

Thanks for the rec about the Maxi Cozi Pria. I am going to see what my doctor says about the weight of my child as he gets closer to birth. However it is nice to have options.

Oh I have one question though, my son (outside of me) is long torso. Always has been. Is the Pria better with long torso then Britax? At 14 weeks gestation this baby was measuring about 14 weeks 6 days in the belly so I think he might be like his bigger younger brother (love how FET complicates family relationships).
