Car seat (infant) recommendations

So.... My wife and I are expecting an extra present later this year around Christmas, and I am looking for any recommendations on infant car seat to put in the back of the car. Before you ask, my wife is short, so being able to move the passenger seat all the way forward isn't a problem, so and reading some old comments on here, it certainly seems like this is possible, I'm just wondering if anyone has any good recommendations on seats they've had experience with in the past.

We have a vert, but I don't think that should impact our ability to fit one in at all.

I have a 5 and 2 year old. Both have been in the car as infants. Rear-facing, I used the Chicco Key-Fit 30 and once they got old enough to be forward-facing, they were in Recaro car seats. Congrats!

Subscribed! I have a 3 week old and I'm wondering how I'm going to fit him in my car. My wife isn't super tall (5'8"), but I am so he would have to ride behind her.

Seriously? That's great, because I think that's one of the ones my wife and I were looking at when we last visited BuyBuyBaby. Thanks for the suggestion, we'll have to check that out more seriously.

Baby isn't due til Christmas Eve, so we have time, but I was starting to worry there wasn't anything lately that would fit.

x2, I have the Chico base for my little guy who is due in 2 weeks already in the car. And once he's old enough I'm getting a recaro to match the interior

You will jump for joy once they are in a booster seat. So much easier. My 7 and 5 yr old love the vert not sure my son will fit in the backseat much longer though.

I have an 8 year old boy who never met a pizza he didn't like (a big kid) and still fits fine in the back.

My 7 yr old is tall. He fits but legroom wise it won't be long

Congrats! Ours was the 5th. Do you have a link for the matching Recaro seat?
