You'll need a car seat, and a way to move your baby around when your hands are full (stroller, carrier, or both). Think about items that will work well across a longer age range. Here's what you don't need:
- A frame for an infant car seat. (A travel system will let you latch an infant car seat into a stroller for older children).
- Lots of different carriers - it's worth trying on different carriers in a store if you can, especially with all of the people who will likely be using it, since fit and ease of safe use are key to happy babies and adults! Pick one that can support your child through different stages of development.
