“How long does a 0+ car seat last?”

This is Henry in he’s Graco Junior.

He’s 8,5 months old at the picture, he’s in a cloth nappy which does take up a bit more space then a disposable so keep that in mind.
He’s a 98th percentile child of 76 CM (30inch) long and 10.5 KG. (approx. 21lb) He has a longish torso though of 32,5CM (13inch).

Henry still has room in this seat for a little while yet.

Remember that for every upgrade in car seat, the less safe the child becomes. Don’t be afraid to actually use the babyseat to the MAX, even if your friends are buying new ones. This is what is recommended.

PS:
We are European, so for my american friends visiting this blog, american standars are at times different, please look in your car seat manual, it will most likely tell you when your child is outgrown the seat.
