I did a TON of research before adding the KeyFit 30 to my baby registry, because I wanted to find just the right car seat. I was lucky enough to get it, and it is AWESOME!!!! The included newborn insert was very helpful for the first month or so, until my son fit comfortably in the seat without it. It seemed to keep him in place very securely so that he did not get jiggled around in the seat on bumpy roads and sharp corners. The car seat snaps in and out of  its base, which stays in the car. This makes getting the baby in and out of the car quick and easy, no need to mess with the seat belt. The base is also very easy to install and to switch between cars, it takes all of about one minute. When my son was small, it was so easy to carry the seat (with him in it) into wherever we were going. Now that he's about 16 pounds, I still bring him in and out of the house in it but I take him out when we go shopping, etc. because the seat is heavy on its own, and very heavy with him in it. I would not say that the weight of the seat is a negative, though because it is just very securely built. The way that the seat is constructed makes me feel that my son is very safe and secure in it. The neutral "cubes" pattern is great because I can use the seat again when we have our next child whether it's a boy or a girl. My son is 5 months old now and about 27 inches long. In a few inches, we'll have to put this car seat away (much to my dismay) so I guess its time to start looking for a "big boy" Chicco car seat for him.

There are a lot of things I love about this infant car seat and a lot of things I am not crazy about.  I absolutely love the look of it!  It is so simple, neutral, and pretty stylish.  I get complimnts on it all the time!  I love that it came with the infant head insert.  It is also so convenient that the whole cover can be removed and washed.  We had to do this a number of times when my infant ha da diaper blow out that required us to wash the whole car seat!  It isn't super easy to get the cover off or back on but it is possible!  It is also machine washer safe but we did not put ours in the dryer.  This car seat also has fantastic safety ratings.  That was one of the main selling points for my family.  The base that comes with this seat is also incredibly easy to install.  We were able to install it with the latch system in minutes.  It is also easy to figure out how to use restrain it in a car with just the lap or shoulder belt.  The thing I didn't like was that it doesn't fit into the seat part of shopping carts.  I was really disappointed to find that out on our first outing to the grocery store.

    Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

    Our baby was a preemie and all the nurses in the NICU approved of this car seat. I appreciate how lightweight it is yet very sturdy. The cons, however, is the canopy part does not stay up (slides down with the smallest bumps letting sunlight in when I'm trying to block it out). It's really frustrating on strolls as well.

    Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

    I'm a fan of the keyfit 30's, they have attractive designs, they are easy to install and I feel that my baby is 100% safe in it. But where to start..? The seat has removable padding that you can throw in the washer if need be.. its an absolute plus. They are also safe for preemie babies as well. The straps and buckles are super easy to put together and to tighten the harness all you do is either pull the strap near babies feet, to loosen you push the orange button nears babies feet while pulling on the harness straps. The canopy is removable as well. There are conveniently orange marked buttons or release points to remove the car seat from the base (which is located near the back of babies head, but on the outer side of the car seat. 2 on the handle to move it up or down, and the one to loosen the harness near babies feet. Such an easy to use and awesome seat.
    I can say probably the only 2 negative things about the seat is.. it's a bit heavy, our son is 20 some odd pounds and boy is it hard to carry him around in the seat.. also the shoulder straps cannot be removed.. so you can only wipe them clean.
    Overall I would recommend.

    Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

    This is a great stroller. What I find most convenient is how easy it is to install, and take in/out of the car. The one handed feature it's outstanding! The only downside would be the thick padding/material. My son tends to run pretty warm, so he's drenched in sweat after a 20 minute car ride, with the AC in full blast!

    Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

    We bought this seat to haul around our 8.5 pound newborn and continue to use it now that he's 5 months and 17 pounds! It's getting kind of heavy, but I love the ease of use and safety profile (highly rated by consumer reports). It has a nice adjustable sun shade, too. We will continue to use it up until 30 pounds but may use it as a stationary seat soon rather than an infant carrier!

      I purchased this car seat when my preemie graduated from the NICU at just 4lbs!
      The car seat is sturdy, comfortable, easy to install and most important - SAFE! We used this from the time of her NICU graduation to time to graduate to a non-carry car seat. I highly recommend this car seat.

          I got this car seat for my new born and I am glad that I made this decision. It is very comfortable and fits my car perfectly. It goes right into my chicco bravo stroller with just one click. Very easy to use and clean. Good value for money. It is very safe.

          he stay-in-car base features a ReclineSure spring-loaded leveling foot and two RideRight bubble level-indicators to achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. Premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch one-pull tightener with force-multiplying technology help achieve a tight and secure fit with a fraction of the effort! The base is also designed with easy belt routing and integrated lock-offs for alternate installation with vehicle seatbelt. An enclosed underside helps protect vehicle seats from damage.

          To accommodate newborns, the car seat carrier includes ergonomic head and body supports that can be removed easily as baby grows. A five-point harness with one-pull tightener helps keep baby secure, and the carrier shell is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for improved impact protection. An adjustable canopy provides shade from the sun.

          For on-the-go convenience, KeyFit 30 is designed for travel system use with compatible strollers from Chicco. The carrier secures easily to the base and strollers with a reassuring audible click. A two-position, ergonomic carry-handle and one-hand release make it just as easy to remove.

            This seat is great and has lasted through two children! Might be a little heavy, but easy to carry. The cover comes off for cleaning which is great for diaper leaks or spills. The base clips right in to the car so all you have to do is click the seat in and out. Love this car seat!
