    Clek liing Infant Car Seat MFG: Clek
    Why We Love It

    Safety and style meet brilliantly in this high-end seat from ultra-modern (and ultra safety conscious) Canadian car seat brand Clek. There are three different (and easy) ways to install the liing: base with Rigid-LATCH, base with seat belt or no base with seat belt. The seat performs just as well in crash tests in any install configuration. There’s also a metal load leg built into the base that provides extra support in the event of an accident.

    Doona Infant Car Seat Stroller MFG: DOONA Store
    Why We Love It

    If you'll often be getting in and out of taxis with baby or logging frequent flier miles with her, the Doona is guaranteed to make your life so much easier. Many parents love that this infant car seat converts into a stroller so you don’t have to worry about carrying it or unfolding a base once you reach your destination. Some parents find the Doona a little heavy, but the convenience of having a car seat that can transform into a stroller still makes it a favorite. Just don’t forget: Infants shouldn’t be in car seats for extended periods of time. So while the Doona is great for running errands around town, it should not be used in place of a bassinet or flat-lying stroller for naptime.

    Graco SnugRide SnugLock 35 Infant Car Seat MFG: Graco
    Why We Love It

    The SnugRide SnugLock 35 hits the trifecta of things we love in an infant car seat: it’s easy to install, affordable and extremely safe. Why is ease of installation so important? A properly fitted car seat equals a safer car seat, and the three-step installation process on the SnugRide couldn’t be easier. We’re also big fans of the seat’s low weight limit (four pounds, which is great if you’re bringing home a preemie or a smaller baby), a four-position recline, a removable insert that helps newborns get the perfect fit and a European belt bath which means you can install the seat using either the base or your vehicle’s seat belt.

    KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat MFG: Chicco Store
    Why We Love It

    This infant car seat stood out to our Lab experts for its ease of installation, which is crucial to ensuring the safety of your child. The carrier also clicks from the car seat base directly into a range of compatible strollers, making the entire transportation process a breeze. Plus, it’s approved for infants as little as 4 pounds with removable head and body support. However, it is worth noting that at 9.5 pounds, this carrier is on the heavier side when compared with similar options.

    Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4 MFG: Peg Perego Store
    Why We Love It

    While safety is, of course, paramount when it comes to infant car seats, for many parents, aesthetic is close second. The newest iteration of the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio delivers on both fronts. The sleek and lightweight seat features a breathable fresco jersey fabric that comes in a wide range of colors (the Italian-based company manufactures 14 different shades!). The seat also has a slim design that not only enhances its aesthetic, but also means it can fit better in small cars.
