I'm so confused!

The most confusing thing I have run up against in all of my pregnancy and birth research so far: The car seat.

You wouldn't think it'd be that hard, right? But there are so many issues. Do you want an infant seat or a convertible? Will the convertible fit the baby right away? Will we even be able to remove an infant bucket from the back of a 2-door car? What happens when DomerBaby grows out of an infant seat and needs the convertible? Will it fit in our car? Why is one brand $300, and others $40. What makes it special? Does my baby need the Mercedes of car seats? Is there a safety difference, or are they just preying on us poor, unsuspecting new parents?

Why do they make these damned things so enormous, anyway?!?!

I long for the days when we didn't know any better and my parent's let me and Deb share the front seat so long as we were buckled. The new recommendation is that children under 12 (and I've seen 15) do not sit in the front seat. I'm doomed to be a chauffeur forever. Of course that'll end the fighting over who gets the front seat, at least!
