Infant Car Seat Comparison
Here is all you need to know about the car seats we sell. Each represents one of the best infant car seats on the market, so no matter which direction you go in you can't go wrong.
Maxi Cosi Mico AP: PROS: very light, about 8 lbs.; has pre-deployed air bags (Air Protect) around the head and neck; costs $199.99; recommended by Consumer Reports. CONS: lower weight capacity, 22 lbs., which may mean that you have to transition to a convertible car seat earlier (although an average 1 year old is 22 lbs.); base installation is clunky.
Chicco Keyfit 30: PROS: lightweight at around 9 lbs.; small base footprint allows installation even in the smallest vehicles; easy installation technology; costs $189.99 to $199.99; overall highest recommendation by Consumer Reports. CONS: None.
UppaBaby Mesa: PROS: SmartSecure base for one of the easiest installs; integrates with the UppaBaby Vista & Cruz strollers without any additional purchase; recommended by Consumer Reports. CONS: one of the heaviest car seats in the market at more than 11 lbs.
Nuna Pipa: PROS: rigid latch for fool-proof install; extremely light at under 8 lbs.; load leg; weight capacity 4-32 lbs.; Oeko-Tex fabrics; comfortable positioning cushions; with its Dream Drape it has the canopy with the fullest sun coverage. CONS: None.
