Some of these Amazon deals may have longevity but most are going to be strictly “while supplies last”, so don’t dilly-dally if you find a great price on something you really need or just seriously want. I’ve only listed items with FREE SHIP and in most cases FREE RETURNS just in case it doesn’t work out. Here at CarseatBlog.com we always recommend that you “try before you buy” but we understand that’s just not possible in many situations. Free shipping with free returns, in case it doesn’t pan out for whatever reason, is the next best thing!
Everyone understands that low birthweight babies often come with challenges. However, most expecting parents don’t consider the possibility that the carseat they bought or chose to put on their baby registry might not fit baby well if she or he arrives early or is smaller than average at birth.
Of course, you often have no idea ahead of time that you’re going to have a preemie or smaller-than-average term baby. But if you’re expecting multiples, have a history of preterm labor or just a history of delivering small babies then you really want to be prepared with a carseat that is likely to fit the baby/babies well – regardless of whether they’re 4 lbs. or 9 lbs. at discharge.
