Children who are not tall enough and whose legs are too short to bend over the edge of the seat are not ready to wear a seat belt only. They should therefore continue to use a booster seat that suits their weight and height, even if their sitting height is 63 cm (25 inches) or more. Note that a new Highway Safety Code measure will come into effect in April 2019. Under that new measure, children will be required by law to be at least 145 cm tall or 9 years of age before wearing just a seat belt.
Phew! Now it’s time to navigate the options. Combination seats will take you from birth to approximately 105cm or 18kg, or 4 years old. This means they are both rear and front-facing and have adjustable recline positions, head and back rests and removable inlays (for added comfort for your newborn baby). Look out for washable covers and guarantees (between two years and a lifetime!) Then there are the baby car seats, which are rear-facing only. These models are lightweight and have a handle, which fits into a pushchair, so you can transport your sleeping baby from car to crib. From there, you’ll transfer to a forward-facing car seat (suitable up to 4 years old) and then a highback booster seat without a harness (suitable from 4-12 years old with side impact-protective covers). Alternatively, you could transfer to a highback booster seat with a harness. This acts like a combination seat, but is forward-facing only, so it’s suitable for children from 15 months to 12 years. 
The new and improved Snap N Go EX Universal Infant Car Seat Carrier, will accept one infant car seat. It allows adults to place an infant car seat on the carriage frame without removing child from the infant car seat. A convenient 2 cup holder parent tray with covered storage compartment makes this stroller easy for travel. Lightweight and easy to transport the Snap N Go EX features a convenient one hand fold. For parents on the go, this stroller includes a large drop down storage basket to keep your necessities close by. Safety features includes rear wheels with brakes for stability, adjustment straps on the carriage frame to cradle the car seat, and the securing strap for securing the car seat onto the carriage frame. Accepts all Baby Trend and accepts Most: • Chicco Key Fit 30 • Combi Shuttle 33 • Cosco • Evenflo Embrace • Graco Snugride 22 and 35,& Safe Seat 32, • Maxi-Cosi Mico• Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 30• Safety 1st on Board 35... and more Infant Car Seats.

This stroller has been a dream. It is by far the easiest assembly I've ever had for a stroller (it took just minutes to set up, and everything was extremely intuitive). It collapses down so it's easy to store in a closet or fit in a relatively small trunk. And the storage space! It's huge! I can fit a jumbo diaper bag, and my purse, and a snack bag, and shopping bags, and... I could go on. I do wish it allowed for larger kids since my 1 1/2-year-old will likely outgrow this in a year, but obviously, this is meant to start with infants. Still, I'm enjoying this stroller so much that I might just buy the next size up when the time comes.
This strap tends to slip and turn and move, cannot be fixed with the strap in one position on my car seat. Because of how my car seat is designed, if I position the straps the way they are in the picture, the whole thing is "top heavy" and will pivot toward the baby's head, which is worse than useless. And the straps are not stable at the top of the carrier, nor can I put them on the inside of the handle, which might make things more secure. I can't tighten or lengthen the horizontal strap across the top, and it's either too big or not big enough for stability.
Even if your child is older than one year and does not need help walking, seat the child facing the rear. As long as you follow the safety guidelines, rear-facing installation affords better protection for the child's head, neck and chest in the event of an impact. Your child will be safer, even if his or her legs are touching the back of the vehicle seat.
For the price, this is a good system, but don’t expect it to last through more than one child. The stroller is sturdy for those who are only going to use it for walking and travelling. For running, it may wear out faster. Always inspect every part as soon as you get it and contact the seller or manufacturer immediately if something breaks. The warranty on this system is also about 180 days, so you may have issues getting replacement parts past that time frame.
Lower anchor and tethers for children (LATCH) connectors are a system of hooks and straps that secure to anchor points built into all cars manufactured after 2002. They function to secure the car seat safely in the back seat rather than using the car's seat belt system. LATCH connectors have their own weight limits, so it is important to switch from the LATCH system to the car's seat belts when the combined weight of the child and the car seat exceed the limit.

Since I can't load toddler into his car seat while wearing baby, If I happen to be loading the car on a rare outing without a stroller I quickly place baby in her seat unbuckled, load and buckle toddler and loop back to get baby buckled in. I leave my car keys next to baby to remind me to go back and buckle her (since I have only 2 remaining brain cells left and could totally imagine forgetting to strap her in!).

Using the Bumbleride adapter, we partnered it with the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP, a stellar car seat that proves exceptionally easy to use in our tests, and which attaches securely in a variety of cars, whether using the LATCH mechanisms or a seat belt. But the brand doesn’t make a traditional or combination stroller that we’ve tested, and its infant car seat carrier, called the Maxi-Cosi Taxi, earns a much lower score in our tests. 
As a classically trained chef and an enthusiastic DIYer, I've always valued having the best tool for a job—whether the task at hand is dicing onions for mirepoix or hanging drywall. When I'm not writing about home products, I can be found putting them to the test, often with help from my two young children, in the 1860s townhouse I'm restoring in my free time.
The Graco Relay model is one of the best for parents who like to pick up some speed when they are running and jogging, especially for those who run hills or sprints. It features the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35, which scored a 9.2 on our list. The seat holds babies from 4 - 35 pounds. The car seat weighs 7.5 pounds without the base and its dimensions are of 30.7” L x 18.7” W x 15.6” H. Stroller folded dimensions are 20.5" L x 33.5" H x 25.5" W.
The fabric isn’t very soft and smooth as with other strollers, so it might not be comfortable or breathable for long trips. The covered compartment in the parent tray might be too small for some phones such as the iPhone 6Plus and up. Also, there have been quality control issues with some parts breaking or getting stuck on the stroller after less than a year’s use.

But money is still an important factor for most families. If you buy your car seat along with a stroller in a travel system, it can save you some money. For instance, a Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4/35 car seat is about $300 alone. The Peg Perego Booklet stroller is about $350. Buying them together in the Peg Perego Booklet Travel System is about $600, so you’re saving at least $50. That might not seem like much, but every dollar saved can really help when you need to buy essentials like diapers, baby food, etc.
There are numerous things to take into consideration before making your purchase especially if you are new parents. Your first concern should be safety. Try and research online to find out which brands of car seat stroller combo offer things such as impact protection and distribution of crash force. Look to see whether the system you are considering has met USA safety standards or whether it has been top rated by any consumer magazines.
I did look at a bunch of reviews prior to buying. Looked at several different options and decided to give this one a try. So glad I did. Had this for over 5 months now, great car seat. Easy to install, kiddo is comfortable, and seems very safe and secure. We are looking at the next size up as our kiddo grows and will be sticking with the Chico brand. Would definitely recommend.
Baby strollers carseat combo are special strollers that have the combination of both the car seat and stroller. It is designed mainly for newborn infants and for babies up to one year old. These type of strollers generally have a baby stroller and an infant car seat which can be either rear facing or front facing. When the baby grows bigger than the car seat, it can be used just as a stroller alone.
As the name suggests, the all-in-one car seat covers all of your child's car seat needs, and it can install in both rear- and forward-facing positions. It transitions from infant car seat to forward-facing toddler car seat to booster seat. In the rear-facing position, an all-in-one car seat safely holds babies as small as 4 pounds. In the forward-facing position, kids can wear the five-point harness up to 65 pounds. As a booster seat, children up to 120 pounds can sit in the booster securely using the car's seat belt system.
Convertible Seat is the next level after outgrowing an infant seat. It is recommended to be purchased no later than a child’s first birthday. It can be installed rear- or forward-facing. The harness system is almost the same as the one in infant seats, but convertible seat has a higher rear-facing weight limit. This means toddler can ride rear-facing longer, which both Consumer Reports and the American Academy of Paediatrics recommend as the safest option. There must be installed rear-facing for children younger than 1 and weighing less than 20 lbs. These seats can be used rear-facing up to 40-50 lbs, depending on the seat, and we recommend rear-facing until at least age 2, or the rear-facing limits of the seat. In some states, children under 2 must ride this way (CA, NJ, OK). When your child is 2-year-old, the seat can be turned around and used forward-facing until time for a booster seat. They can be installed forward-facing for kids at least 1 year of age, although Consumer Reports recommends waiting until at least age 2.  Many parents may have children as heavy as 65 lbs. Although the minimum weight limit allows for newborns and smaller infants, the car seat for heavy children often doesn’t provide the best fit for smaller babies or the convenience of a detachable carrier. Price range: $40 to 450.

The adjustable, or five-point, harness comes on all infant, all-in-one and convertible car seats. The harness secures around the baby's hips, shoulders and between the legs. You can continually adjust the fit of the harness as your baby grows. One of its most prominent features is the chest clip, which sits at armpit level across the baby's chest. Proper position is important to keep your baby safe and to reduce injuries.


Even if your child is older than one year and does not need help walking, seat the child facing the rear. As long as you follow the safety guidelines, rear-facing installation affords better protection for the child's head, neck and chest in the event of an impact. Your child will be safer, even if his or her legs are touching the back of the vehicle seat.
Love it! I dont leave it on my car seat for everyday use as I find it is harder to get the seat to click into the base....but that is just me. I used this for going on a trip and absolutely loved it....not sure what I would have done without it. I flew with my daughter with no other companions. I could carry the carseat, diaper bag and another bag and still had my hands free! Highly recommended!!!
Older versions had less headroom per seat, so toddlers’ heads often touched the top well before they outgrew the weight limit. The new version should be better with the upgrades, but keep that in mind when shopping. This new version also has limited colors available, so if you’re dead set on blue, you may be disappointed unless you opt for the older version.
Your first concern should always be the safety of your child. Make sure a prospective convertible car seat puts safety first with features like impact foam technology, adjustable harnesses, and buckle locations. Also consider options like head support (or adjustable headrest), side impact protection, machine washable seat pads, and a LATCH system for attaching car seat directly to your car.

I purchased this myself after using the full travel system a few times. I needed something smaller to go to and from the car and that didnt take up a lot of space. This attachmemt was perfect for what i needed it for. It was her primary transportation but now we use the full size for daily activities bc she needs more space. Awesome idea and highly recommended.


From my experience, starting babywearing early is very helpful for getting your baby used to it. I’ve collected a total of 4 carriers (several were purchased used) and have different preferred uses for each and have found that each of my babies had one that they most preferred in the first two months - the Baby K'tan with my firstborn and the Moby wrap with my newest addition.
Chicco’s duo of infant car seats, the KeyFit and the KeyFit 30, both do extremely well in our tests. Both also prove easy to use and install in a variety of cars—a big distinction given that car seats are too often installed improperly. The Chicco KeyFit 30 accommodates little ones up to 30 pounds, giving you a longer window of use than the Chicco KeyFit, featured above, which maxes out at 22 pounds. 
The adjustable, or five-point, harness comes on all infant, all-in-one and convertible car seats. The harness secures around the baby's hips, shoulders and between the legs. You can continually adjust the fit of the harness as your baby grows. One of its most prominent features is the chest clip, which sits at armpit level across the baby's chest. Proper position is important to keep your baby safe and to reduce injuries.

For parents who are looking to get back into shape after having a baby, a jogger stroller and car seat combo helps you burn calories while taking your baby along. These are usually very sturdy, lightweight strollers that can move quickly and maneuver well over bumpy terrain. They can be more expensive than other models, which is something to think about. Be aware that not all “jogger” strollers are made for jogging. For instance, there’s a brand called Baby Jogger with several strollers, but there’s only ONE of their strollers actually approved for jogging.
My wife gave birth three weeks ago to our first child. We bought this to as our first stroller and found that it was a deal, especially when considering it included the stroller, car seat and car seat base. We purchased the 2015 Chili Red version for precisely $279.99. I'm not sure why the price has risen since then -- it's selling for around $320 now. Strange. We've since been gifted a few other strollers as a supplement to this one.
