Slim convertible carseat or regular?

With Black Friday and holiday sales coming up and just finding out Im expecting, I want to have an eye out for some items we will need. The item we will need for sure is a carseat.

My question is... DS will be about 17 mos when this lo is due, should I get a convertible carseat for DS and use his current seat for the newbie?? Since he will be forward facing in a year or so afterwards I'd end up having to buy a new seat again.

Then my next question is if so, which convertible seats are slim? My 11 yr old will be sitting in the back with 2 carseats and I want to make sure he is not squished too bad.

Also, I should add, I havent even looked up any options yet because I know it can get super overwhelming with so many different kinds and reviews. So I am pretty clueless as far as convertible carseats go.

Thanks!

I love diono, we have that and a foonf but the foonf takes up a lot of front to back room and extremely heavy.

Re: Slim convertible carseat or regular?

Hey I just wanted to thank both of you for the Diono recommendation! We won a brand new one in an auction on ebay at an awesome price and I am obsessed with it. DS hasnt cried once getting in or out of it and he used to cry every single time with his old one. The other one will go to the newbie because I like to have the option to carry the carseat (i think they are called bucket carseats? like the non convertible ones) when needed but as soon as the new baby gets big enough I am definitely getting another Radian RXT!
