Travel system or convertible car seat and individual stroller?

Cas • LEO/USMC wife. In over my head.

I can’t decide which would be more practical. The travel system sounds the most convenient, at least for a short(ish) time, letting the baby sleep and all.

The convertible car seat with a completely separate stroller make me think I’d get more long-term use out of each. But then a friend told me I won’t likely use all the settings/size options on the car seat, so don’t waste my money.

Does anyone with experience have some insight or advice?
