The Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat is the premier infant carrier for safety, comfort, and convenience. With its removable newborn insert, the KeyFit 30 Car Seat will accommodate your baby from four to thirty pounds. The KeyFit 30’s thickly cushioned seat includes a five-point safety harness and is lined with energy-absorbing foam for increased safety and comfort. The KeyFit 30 Base’s spring-assisted level foot, two precision bubble levels, and “Center-Pull” LATCH adjustment guarantee quick and correct installment from either side of your vehicle and give you confidence that your child is safely secured in your vehicle.
This is the most popular infant car seat around. It’s very easy to install and clicks securely into the base with no fuss. Consumer Reports also rated it the best for crash protection, which is, bottom line, what we are all looking for in a car seat. It fits easily in a variety of cars and with the Keyfit Caddy stroller, it makes an excellent and very easy travel system--great for spontaneous walks around town without disturbing a sleeping baby.
The Catch: Might not be the best for city parents who rely on taxis and public transportation as it can be difficult to get a secure fit without the base.
Car seat is heavy. Does not puzzle well for 3 across with the base. Fabric is comfy yet wipes clean. Harness easy to adjust and fits newborns well. Canopy is lacking so extra sun protection needed.

Easiest car seat to get in and out and top safety rated. Straps are super easy to adjust and comfortably position baby. Seat is very comfy with built in headrest and shoulder straps. Husband loves!

I bought this seat with my first & used it with all 3 babies. It has a good life span, it's durable, & I love that it pops in and out of the car and stroller so easily. I always recommend this

I absolutely love this infant carrier! We purchased the "zip" version but I couldn't imagine life without it! You don't have to get baby out in the cold and it also shields her from everything outside

This was a great infant car seat.Having the portable bucket made it easy when that baby was asleep to transition them out of the car. The seat was easy to install and the straps were easy to use.

This has been the best car seat for my little one. If fits great with our stroller and is so light. The straps and clips are easy to use and the color is adorable. I recommend this carseat for all

This car seat is fairly narrow, which is great if you are trying to squeeze it into a small car. It's a little heavy, and the baby can only be 30 inches tall, which they often hit before 30 pounds.

I love that this like many other infant car seats if you have multiple cars you don't have to have multiple car seats. You just have to buy bases for it to snap and lock in. Makes it so much easier!

I had this for my now 5 year old, I'm also a CPST and deal with it often. Best for new parents who are worried about installation. Fabrics are durable but can make baby sweaty. It's really easy to use

This car seat was perfection, lightweight, durable, easy to clean, install, remove and carry. I had a base for each car and loved it. Only downside is the handle is not the most comfortable.
