Starting over and Needing Baby Gear Advice

Car Seat Recommendations - 2Nd Car Seat

My son is 6 months old and already over 20 lbs and therefore outgrowing his 1st car seat/carrier. So I'm starting to look into getting him a new car seat.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm a new mom, so any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Did baby just lay next to you on top of your covers? I'm hoping for some advice on this. Also, how did you keep your baby warm/cool enough when sleeping with you? Thanks!
