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.

    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.

    Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

    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!

          Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

          I recently got this carseat from my parents and I couldn't be anymore happier with it. I read online that it was the best at keeping your new baby safe and it was rated excellent on other websites. Once I received the product I couldn't believe how easy it was to detach it from the base and to also put it back in. The base itself has a safety level to let you know your carseat is sitting in the proper position for the carseat to do its job properly. The canopy comes down far enough where it covers my babies face from the sun. It also has a nice infant barrier for when the baby is a newborn. I love this carseat and this brand and will recommend this to my friends for when they have there own children.

            I purchased our Chicco travel system gently used before I had my son. We had originally bought a used Graco car seat but found such a good deal on the KeyFit 30! I love it! The installation is so easy and the base can easily be moved between cars if needed.
            The seat itself provides great protection for baby and fits my son well. The only dislike I have is how heavy the seat is, but that's pretty unavoidable. Love our chicco!!

            Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

            I really like the Chicco Keyfit 30 infant car seat. When I first got it, I read the manual cover to cover so I could be sure to use it properly. I learned in one of my parenting classes that almost all car seats are used improperly, risking the lives of the children that ride in them. Because of that, I wanted to be sure that I was using the car seat 100% correctly. I was very pleased to see that it was very easily to correctly install and use the car seat once you are aware of the correct way to do so. All car seats pass the same safety/crash tests, so there isn't really one that is "safer" than any other when they are all used correctly, but some are easier to use properly, and the Chicco Keyfit it definitely easy to use. The base installed with little trouble in both of my cars. Once the base is in, getting the seat in and out is as easy as clicking it in. Next, I followed the instructions for adjusting the harness so the shoulder straps were coming from below my daughters shoulders (very important for rear facing!), and practiced buckling her in. The straps and chest clip were comfortable and easy to fasten. My only minor complaint is that the shoulder pads make it a little difficult to get the straps to the proper tightness, where they pass the "pinch test". It's not impossible though, and doing this actually seemed to get easier the longer I used the seat. My daughter never seemed uncomfortable in this seat, and I was able to relax knowing that she was traveling safely. I would definitely buy another Chicco Keyfit for a future baby based on my experience.

              This car seat is nice looking. It seems safe and comfy for a newborn. I like how easily is attached to the stroller. The car base make it easy to snap I'm the car with ease. My son was a large baby and it got very difficult to carry him in the car seat once he reach a higher weight. The fabric used washed really nice and held up good with use.

                Comments about Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat:

                The Chicco Key Fit was amazing for our family. We have a midsize car. The car seat was perfect in the middle with plenty of room on each side for people to sit. When we brought our almost ten pound baby home we did have to use the premi insert as he was still really little and needed that little extra support. Now as time went by he started growing and so we started to have to move the straps on the seat. The amazing thing about the Key Fit, is the straps were not hard to move at all. Which is great as most car seats have horrible straps. As a second time mom it is easy to know what to look for in car seats, but as years go by between kiddos things change a little bit. My son was comfortable in this seat for a good little while, I was actually sad to see it go when we had to upgrade. It was comfortable to carry for me and the husband. This seat was also easy to wipe clean.
