truefit? Evenflow Triumph 65 LX? for newbie

Update - what about Evenflo Triumph 65 LX?


Is truefit still a good seat to start out with a newbie?? I have my eye on it, but want to make sure I make a good choice.

Thanks!!

ETA:
Do you have other recommendations??

I wouldn't. The true fit has very wide shoulder straps.

This. There are people who swear by it, but it didn't fit my DD well til she was about 9 months old. There are too many different pads always scooting around for infants and the straps were always falling off her shoulders because they were too wide. I love it for older kids, but hate it for newbies.

I'd do a MyRide if I was going to do a convertible from birth.

DS3 was 9lb 13oz at birth and 21.5" long at birth and he fits great. I was pretty sure of having a big baby. Our last LO got hers at a few months old because she hated her infant carrier and she was maybe 14lb. I actually like the wider straps. Our spare seat is a Scenera and the straps rub her neck because they are so close together.

My DS was 8 lbs 15 oz and I would not have used a true fit until 6 plus months. He was 11 mo when we got ours and I noticed the wide straps even then.

I bought one for my son at 4-5 months? It fit great. He is a broad shouldered little guy, though. My more petite daughter would not have fit well that young.
