we had the Graco Snugride for when she was newborn, but she's a toddler now and we have the Britax Marathon (can't remember if the Britax can be use for newborns..Chat Icon Chat Icon )

We have the Evenflo Triumph - good ratings from Consumer reports and priced around $100. We're really happy with it, easy to install and my son seems comfortable.

Britax are also high rated. They tend to be $200+. Many of the ladies here have them.

I believe the Britax convertibles can be used this way. You have to have them rear facing to start though.
Are you prepared to carry your newborn everywhere you go? Or use a sling or a Bjorn.
The convertible car seats don't have the carrier type option.

I think that unless money is really, really tight, you want two car seats: One for newborn (like the Snugride) and one that is convertible (like the Britax Marathon mentioned).

We used the Snugride for the infant and now we have the Britax Marathon.
We have the Evenflo Triumph for my husbands car and I like the Marathon so much better..
