Even though it’s our third go-around, figuring out baby gear is always overwhelming. Even in just a couple of years, so many products change or improve! So, I turned to our Instagram community for insight into all things infant. After hundreds of parents responded, here are the top recommendations we received for infant car seats. Then, we did a deeper dive to understand the pros and cons of each and share it all below.
Pros: Two in one—don’t have to pack both a car seat and stroller Super simple to convert between the car seat and stroller The compact size makes it great in stores and restaurants
Cons: Had trouble using it without base depending on various car models. Even a seat belt extension didn’t work in a few cars we tried Not great for taller people as the handle doesn’t adjust high enough
