Maybe I need a lighter kid.

We made a big switch over the weekend. We ditched the infant car seat and now use convertible car seats.The big difference is that the convertible seat stays in the car. It's not a "carrier" like the infant seat was. Ryan was going to outgrow the infant carrier in like 10 minutes. Plus, I just could not carry him in that thing any more. Twenty pounds of baby + 5 pounds of car seat + total awkward bulkiness + the need to carry 9 million other things = baby elbow....more
