Congratulations! You’ve got a new baby (or one on the way), and you want to make sure they have the best of everything from day one – especially the best in safety gear. An infant car seat offers a host of benefits for both you and baby. It provides the best protection and a custom fit for your little one, and makes it so much easier to travel with the tiniest tots.

The ultimate advantage of an infant car seat comes when you’re NOT riding in the car: an infant car seat is designed to click on and off of a base that’s installed in your car, so you don’t need to unbuckle the harness to transfer your baby in and out of the vehicle. Best of all: most infant car seats can click onto your stroller with an infant car seat adapter!

But which seat should you pick? You’ve probably done lots of research already, and you’ve also probably heard the varying (and well-meaning) opinions of those around you. But when it comes to expertise on installation, safety features, and more, you’ll want a trusted source you can return to again and again. That’s where we come in!
