We selected the Chicco Keyfit30 because it was easy to maneuver in and out of the car due to its compact size. It was also one of the few seats that would fit in our small hatchback. The base has a super easy installation with the LATCH connectors.and then you just push the base down while pulling on the belt to tighten. The infant seat then clicks in place.
The seat itself was soft and padded. There is an infant insert that consists of separate body and head insert. The body insert is for babies up to 11lbs, and the head insert can be used longer.
We noticed in the summer that the padding was keeping a baby a bit too warm though, so we had to adjust baby's clothing to account for that on longer trips.
The seat fits an infant up to 30lbs or 75cms. For our tall lanky baby this meant we outgrew it at about 9-10 months due to height..Baby was getting uncomfortable in the seat at the end of 9 months.
We used our seat with a babytrend seat carrier/stroller and a jolly jumper rain cover and cosy, it worked quite well.
