Parents who want to maximize safety and value need look no further than the Cosco Apt Malibu Blue Car Seat. From the day you bring your newborn home from the hospital to the day she tips the scale at 40 pounds, the car seat functions as a rear-facing model (5 to 40lbs). Then, when your baby is closer to toddler, the seat converts to forward-facing (22 to 40lbs). This convertible car seat will also keep your child comfortable as you commute to day care or take road trips to Grandma's. The seat offers side impact protection, which means your little one won't feel the bumps and jars of the road. Three buckle locations, five harness heights and a five-point harness with upfront adjuster mean you can customize the seat to your child's comfort. Plus, the seat's two integrated cup holders keep a sippy cup and snacks close at hand.
