Rotating car seat

We are almost ready to transition little one out of her infant car seat into a convertible seat. I am considering the rotating car seat type. Does anyone have one and how do you like it?

What kind of car do you have? Be aware rotating seats are bulky and take up more room and don't last as long as seatbelt/tethered seats. I have an infant carrier that rotates when in its base. In our old car no one could sit in the front if we used the base.

@Reena ooh good point. I have a 2024 Hyundai Elantra. It’s a sedan. It is pretty roomy in the back but that’s a consideration. What car did you have?

Used to have a Mazda 3, then a merc glc, now a Hyundai ioniq 5. Only the ioniq 5 does it fit comfortably for the front passenger. I realise now you're in the US so your seats will have different limits etc to ours.

I love mine! So easy to take in and out baby, if you have the space I totally recommend it. I think there are some that are not as bulky, you would have to do a little research on that.

We have the Joie i-spin whatever it’s called, it’s great - faces backwards and forwards and definitely easier to wrestle a small child into when they’re having a meltdown about leaving the park 🫠 My mum also has the same and she drives a 2 door VW Polo. I can sit in the front passenger seat fine, maybe a tall man would feel a bit squashed. You can always have it behind the driver if you sit closer to the wheel (we’ve got two kids, so one each side anyway).

We have a Jeep Grand Cherokee & Chevy Equinox and we lovvvvvve our Graco Turn2Me carseat!
