what parents are saying
I have this and the Keyfit Stroller Frame. I'm really happy with how light the system is, how smoothly it travels on sidewalks, and how suuuuuuper well it clicks into the car. Easypeasy. (Apr 25, 2013)
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.
This car seat is SO EASY to use! The click base is a game changer and I love that it has the anchors instead of needing to use a seatbelt. The canopy is well made and not flimsily like other car seats

Had this car seat for one of my foster babies. I liked it, it was fairly lightweight and easy to clean. The base was not my favorite. I have used other infant car seats with easier to install bases.

We used this carseat with both of our boys, and it was great. It's so easy to install in your car and simple to click into a wide variety of strollers as Chicco is a widely recognized brand.

This seat is easy to clean, not heavy and had one of the better safety ratings. Because of its popularity and safety rating your can find stroller adapters from the uppa baby to the BOB strollers .

The system in general is great and the base is good, but both of my kids have hates this car seat. They both had reflux so being scrunched up in this seat was awful on their stomachs and caused vomit

Ours has lasted 3 children. Cleans up well, easy to carry, they seem comfortable, does up easily. The only thing is they do seem to get slightly warm if in there for a long while in warm weather.

Great seat! So easy to get in and out of the car. I've used this seat with both kids. It's easy to clean and isn't overly heavy. Wish it was slightly more attractive, but gets the job done well.

The Keyfit 30 is the only infant car seat I have ever purchased. The only complaint I have about the Keyfit is its weight, but that’s one of the car seat’s safety features. I can live with this.

Used this style for a couple months with my first son and I wasn't a fan. I didn't like how difficult it was to get him out of the seat. Good seat, not a good fit for me. Very heavy not easy to carry.

It works, but it doesn't feel as sturdy to me as the Britax one we used with my son. Only reason we moved to this one was that it adapted to our Uppababy Vista. Also, the 'canopy' doesn't stay up.

This carseat is so well made, the inside fabric is really easy to clean and the carseat clicks in and out of the base with minimal effort! It also clicks in and out of the chicco stroller very easily!

All carseats have the same safety requirements. The best answer is to choose the carseat that is easiest for you to install correctly. This will depend on your car. This carseat in particular is a great seat, but also can be very heavy. If you want to remove it a lot, it might become cumbersome.
