What type of car seat are you looking for?

Infant Car Seats

Kelsey's Take

theHUB's car seat writer

When it comes to convenience and safety, my top infant car seat pick is Graco’s SnugRide featuring SnugLock and Click Connect technology.

I like that the seat’s SnugLock base can be firmly secured in just three simple steps (with a satisfying “click” to know it’s locked in) and the four-position recliner makes it easy to properly position.

Click Connect also allows you to pair this seat with any of Graco’s Click Connect strollers, creating an all-purpose travel system.

Furthermore, I appreciate the detachable lightweight carrier that makes toting your children an effortless exercise.

What Customers Said

The Draw

Very light and easy to install, material is easy to wipe clean as well. We were able to bring our preemie home in this from the hospital.

The Downside

This is a great seat, but I really wish the head support was a little thicker.

Why We Love It

  • This seat has earned a reputation among customers for easy installation with its SuperCinch one-pull tightener straps, making this a convenient multi-vehicle option.
  • The RideRight bubble indicator shows when you have a proper fit, taking the guesswork out of finding the perfect installation angle—saving you time!
  • The Chicco KeyFit 30 is compatible with a wider range of strollers than the Graco SnugRide, giving you more flexibility in creating the travel system of your choice.

Things To Consider

  • At 16.6 lb, the Chicco Keyfit 30 is the heaviest of our infant car seat recommendations.
  • Some customers say the fabric of this seat is not as plush as others on the market and may feel coarse against your baby’s skin.

Why We Love It

  • Compared to our other two infant car seat choices, this one allows for a wider weight and height range, accommodating infants 5-35 lb and up to 32 inches tall.
  • Removing the seat’s padding does not require rethreading the entire harness system, making this easy to clean and saves you precious time.
  • The ergonomically designed handle puts less pressure on your hands, while the plush padding keeps your baby’s head supported. Comfort is key!

Things To Consider

  • Some customers describe the seat as “narrow,” so it may be snug if your baby has broad shoulders.
  • This carrier has limited compatibility with non-Evenflo strollers, which reduces your travel-system options. For a more versatile option, consider the Chicco KeyFit.

Convertible Car Seats

Kelsey's Take

Convertible car seats are meant to see your child from birth until they outgrow a car seat, giving you huge bang for your buck. The Evenflo EveryStage DLX All-in-One Convertible Car Seat is my personal top pick in the category for its combination of value and convenience.

It has great features like the EasyClick latch tightening system that makes for a secure, hassle-free installation while the one-handed head and harness adjustments let this seat grow as quickly as your baby.

Other pluses: parents have reported no trouble fitting this seat into a variety of vehicles and the compact size gives you more leg-room in the front seat.

What Customers Said

The Draw

My husband usually had to install previous car seats because I could not get them secure enough. I am able to install this seat securely without my husband’s help. Compared to previous car seats we tried this is by far the easiest.

The Downside

Only downfall for me was the cup holders…I wish they were a bit more secure.

Why We Love It

  • This car seat offers a fourth variation not found on the other two convertibles we recommend—namely, the backless belt-positioning booster for when your sprouting youngster outgrows the height of the seat but still needs a boost.
  • The 4Ever has a steel-reinforced frame for increased durability.
  • This seat sits high in your vehicle, giving your little one a clear view out the window.

Things To Consider

  • Some parents found this seat to be bulky, requiring the front passenger to sacrifice legroom to accommodate its size.
  • In the forward-facing position, parents have reported this seat does little to prevent their baby’s head from falling forward while sleeping, which can be uncomfortable on long rides. Make sure to keep an eye on your little one!

Why We Love It

  • At just 7.21 lb, the Cosco Scenera is by far the lightest convertible seat on our list—the other two are over three times as heavy. This seat is easily carried, making it a great choice if you’re regularly on the go.
  • The Scenera is narrow and it takes up less room in your car’s back seat—giving you more space for the family.
  • This car seat is extremely budget-friendly compared to our other convertible car seat picks.

Things To Consider

  • This seat accommodates children from 5-40 lb and does not convert to a booster seat, limiting its lifespan. By comparison, our other two convertible recommendations can hold kids weighing 4-120 lb.
  • The padding on this seat is thinner than the Evenflo and Graco seats, so it may be less comfortable for your child during long rides.

Booster Seats

Kelsey's Take

theHUB's car seat writer

Booster car seats are a great solution when you’re transitioning your child from a car seat to big kid seat. High backs are a specific type of booster that gives your toddler full back support for extra safety and a more comfortable ride.

My top pick in the booster category is the Graco TurboBooster, a quality high back that cradles your mini-me, supporting their head and keeping the seat belt in the right position.

I also like how this seat easily converts from a high back to a backless booster, giving your little one the space to grow and you the flexibility to make adjustments in a pinch.

What Customers Said

The Draw

This booster is excellent: high safety rating, affordable price, durable, and light-weight for easy portability.

–Shopper12345zzz, Walmart customer

The Downside

We have owned 4 of these seats and really like them EXCEPT that the treasures – like Nintendo games – our kids store in the cup holders frequently vanish into the interior of the seat where they are next to impossible to retrieve without wrecking the seat.

Why We Love It

  • This 3-in-1 booster offers tremendous value, converting from a five-point harness, to a regular high back, to a backless, so that your child can use it from 22-110 lb. It’s the most flexible booster on our list—the other two are for kids between 40-100 lb.
  • A five-point harness is considered the safest booster option and is great for especially squirmy kids. [source]
  • The Harmony Defender comes with a secure latch to keep it in position even when not in use.

Things To Consider

  • This booster seat weighs over 10 lb more than the Graco TurboBooster and is 15 lb heavier than the Cosco Top Side Backless. So, keep the higher weight in mind if you’ll be removing the seat often or moving it between vehicles.
  • Assembling this booster requires a dig into the toolbox and a few extra minutes of your time.

Why We Love It

  • A backless booster seat is a great final transition to a big kid seat, giving your child the freedom to move around and the feeling of riding without a car seat.
  • The Cosco Top Side is the easiest to install out of all our booster recommendations, making it great to use across multiple vehicles.
  • This seat is super compact, allowing it to be stored away easily (especially compared to our other booster picks.)

Things To Consider

  • A backless booster seat does not offer extra head support, so make sure your vehicle’s headrest is at an appropriate height for your child. For safer alternatives, consider the high back Graco TurboBooster or the Harmony Defender with a five-point harness.
  • The Cosco Top Side does not have a latch system to restrain your child, so it may not be a good choice if your child tends to move around a lot while in the car.
