So I am looking on BRU for a carseat. It says that this is an infant-toddler carseat. Is it even okay to put an infant in a seat like this? I'm sorry but I am really confused now. I thought you needed the one like the one below.
You have to have the one below I believe until they are 25 pounds/a year old.
as long as you can do the rear facing position yes it would still be safe for infant, and i believe that one does... the bottom one just comes in handy while they're still small because if they're asleep you can just leave them in it
no you can use a convertiable one, they normally start at 5 pounds and then they ahve to be a year AND 20 pounds to forward face
edited- its just easier to use the carrier while they are so small, no need to wake a sleeping baby
Usually the convertible seats (the top one) are rated for 5+ pounds. The downsides can be having the space in a backseat to rear-face it properly because they're bulky. You also would have to take your baby out every time and put him/her in a sling, carrier or a stroller. The infant seats can be nice but heavy and my son grew out of his last one by four months. I'm also not a fan of the travel system strollers that go with them so I'll be getting just a Graco frame to snap the infant seat on instead of the honkin' stroller.

I have a convertible similar to the first one you posted. Its ranges from 5-80lbs. The safety ratings on it for infants were higher than they carrier type carseats. The only downside to them is, they are stationary and you can't just grab the carseat out the car and use it as a carrier.
you can use both just make sure they are rear facing.....but i would suggest using the infant one just because they are easier to transport the baby.....like in the store or house.....and you dont have to wake them up if they are sleeping
the infant to todler one is for when babies grow out of the infant carrier. so that could be starting at like 6 months. it is a convertable carseat and faces both foewards and backwards, for the babies safty. you will still need the infant carrier.
it is also better for the baby's spine to be in the infant carrier for as long as they can! I worked at babues r us in carset and stroller section.
You can use the convertible one, the only issue is what to put the baby in when you are out of the car. You could use a carrier/sling.
Most people prefer the carrier carseat b/c you can remove it from the car without taking baby out.
How can an infant support his/her head while in the infant-toddler carseat? The back seems so straight if you know what I mean.

You can use the convertible one. It starts at 5 pounds. I would reccomend the infant seat though because it is easer to get the baby in and out of the car without waking him or her. And btw, my son has that convertible carseat and I LOVE it.
