As a first time parent and the product of a safety conscience family, I wanted something that was super safe for my son.  I narrowed our choices through online searches, and then we headed to a local specialty baby store to see the products in person.   At first, I was hesitant about his car seat because of the hefty price.  However, once I saw how easily it locks into its base and how easy it is to get out of the car, I was sold!  It is a super safe seat and great for small babies.  We planned on our son being a big baby, but when he arrived six weeks early at under 5 lbs, we felt truly blessed to already have the car seat that the NICU nurses recommended.  Since he was so small, he had to pass a car seat test before leaving the hospital...it was to make sure that he could medically handle sitting in the car seat for extended periods of time.  At 7 days old and less than five pounds, he sat in this car seat snugly and secure for over 90 minutes without being uncomfortable.  In fact, he slept through the entire test!  We love that we didn't need to add anything to the car seat to accomodate his small size and that everything can be adjusted as he grows.  Additionally, we really like that we can remove and launder the seat cover.  Everyone in our family easily learned how to work this car seat and loves how easily it goes into its base and how easy it is to remove.  It just snaps itself in when placed on top of the base in the proper position!  We really like the sun shade, but wish it came out just a tad more.  We really like the adjustable handle.  I don't have any complaints about this seat.  I have already recommended it to friends who are pregnant.  I hope that Chicco is still carrying this seat when we have our next child!

We loved the way the Chicco Keyfit and Cortina stroller looked first and foremost.  After reading many reviews though I decided it was a good purchase even though it was very pricey.  I hate the car seat now!!  It does not lock onto the shopping cart like most other car seats or on to high chairs in restaurants.  Plus, my baby gets soo hot in it we had to drive around with the air-conditioner on in January.  He cries every time he's in it.  I'm frustrated now that the weight limit on it is only 22 lbs never expecting my son to weigh 20 lbs at five months.  So now we have a practically brand new car seat and I'm already having to shop for a new one.  I do however love the Chicco Cortina stroller.  It rolls so nicely and can easily be maneuvered with one hand.  It did take us a while to learn how to open and close it and put the car seat on it.

nothing compares!

By 

from Fort Smith, AR

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

You get what you pay for. And that statement holds very true when it comes to the chicco infant seat. I did plenty of research when buying the carseat for our first baby and nothing compared. yes it was a tad more expensive but so worth it!! The cadillac of car seats!

Ease of Installation
The base hooks in so well and does not budge at all in my SUV or my husbands truck.

Child's Comfort
Has so much extra cushion and removable comfort pads that so many other infant seats do not offer. My daughter and son have both loved being in this seat.

Support and Safety
Safety was and is my number one concern and the chicco put all my concerns to rest. Everything is very easy to adjust to your growing baby so they fit snug and secure at any age.

Ease of Use
Snaps in and out of the car like a breeze!!!

Design
I love all the nice fabric and color choices chicco offers. I chose a green and gray pattern so it could be used for both of my children.

Durability
We now have our third child in this seat and it has held up better than I had ever expected! Especially since my boy spit up in it so much I was worried about the fabric being stained but it's not at all it just washes right out. Very easy to clean.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this carseat!

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

We have 6 kids and have been through several infant carriers. This is BY FAR our favorite. It is stylish, yet very safe and so, so easy to use! Taking the padding off for washing, adjusting the straps, moving the base....EVERYTHING is made to be simple for a regular parent to figure out without causing crazy frustration. I cannot say enough good things about this car seat. I only wish they made seats for toddlers as well!

Loved this carseat, recommend it to everyone

By 

from Ogden, UT

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

Oh my goodness, I loved this carseat.  I actually bought the travel system which I don't think I would do again because the stroller is quite bulky, but I am convinced this is THE BEST infant carrier/carseat around...especially for the price! 

It's super user friendly.  Installation, removal from the base, etc.  were always a breeze because they really thought of everything.  I have compared its ease-of-use to carriers that my friends and family have used and this one beats them all out easily.

It is so incredibly easy to install (my car has the Latch System which makes it even easier).  I have removed and re-installed this carrier numerous times because I often went places with other people and it could be done so quickly and easily.  The carseat literally grows with your child.  We used ours from the time my son was born until he was almost 14 months old.  It fit him well and I didn't want to transition to another carseat because I was so in love with this one. 

I would recommend this to anyone.  I never had one bit of trouble with it, it is so easy to use, they look so much better than most carseats on the market and are easy to clean. 

Ease of Installation
Every friend/family member that is having their first child gets a strong recommendation for this car seat from me. The ease of installation is incredible, I wish all car seats could be this quick.

Durability
I'm using it with my second child now and it still looks great and functions as if it's brand new. I love this seat!

This car seat was great!

By 

from Carmel, IN

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

This car seat was perfect for my son. From day one I could tell that the quality was good and it was made for a newborn and infant. The travel system is a great option so that you can carry your little one who is often sleeping in and out of the car.Once he hit 15 pounds I typically stopped carrying him around though because with the weight of my son plus the car seat the carrying handle would often make my arm sore.The stroller that goes with this travel system is very bulky but definitely worth the pain when your child is an infant. Once he could sit up on his own we opted for a smaller umbrella stroller. The colors that the keyfit come in are gender neutral and it is easy to clean. It was nice to buy the extra base for my husband's car so that either of us could pick him up from daycare. What a great idea and a great system. I would and have recommended this to all of our friends. Good job chicco!

Great infant carseat

By 

from Hendersonville, NC

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

I was given this carseat as a gift when I had my third child. I really like the chicco keyfit a lot. It has a lot of padding and cushion that many other carseats lack and seems very comforable without having to buy additional inserts. I like the way that the base of the carseat locks into my van without having to use the seatbelt and it is very easy to lock into and take out of the base. The material that the seat is made of is very easy to clean and does not stain easily...and its cute, too! The only problems that I have with this seat is that it does not lock on to the buggy at the supermarket like most other carseats do and it is more expensive than many other carseats on the market. Other than that, I have no complaints with this carseat. It has been great.

Chicco KeyFit Car seats are GREAT!!

By 

from Dayton, OR

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

We did a lot of research before deciding on our first car seat for our son. Well after lots of searching and debating this one won, safety ratings were great! Colors were great, as soon as we bought the system, it came with a car seat and stroller we were in love. I must say the car seat is a bit large, it doesn't fit in the front part of carts, and if you dont have a larger backseat then I would recommend a smaller car seat. But besides that its extremely easy to install and looks wonderful, very comfortable, padded on the bum so little ones feel comfy riding in the car. My son LOVED riding in the car when he was an infant, first cold he had we would drive around for hours just so he could fall asleep and this car seat worked like a charm. If you are worried about safety, comfort and ease of installing this is the way to go for sure! I recommend this to all my friends who are pregnant and are searching for the car seat that works great for them. Plus I have the stroller, the stroller has height adjusters for the person pushing it, which is great since my husband is 6'1" and I am 5' 3" makes it a lot easier for either of us to push! Has a cup holder as well as a shader for the little one to stay out of the sun! Love both of these, and even though my son is too big for the car seat he still loves to sit in the stroller! :)

Great carseat

By 

from South Jordan, UT

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

we bought this car seat for our third child and it has turned out to be the best car seat we have ever owned! It is a little on the heavy side but the seat is very safe for children and secures well to the base which secures well to the seat of the car. It is very easy to get the seat in and out of the base and the staps on the seat itself make for a very secure fit for your child. We got the stoller to go with the car seat and it slips in and out of the stoller just as easily as it does the car seat base. The design of the car seat is also great, we got the green and grey one to be more nuetral in case we had another child and it is a good looking color scheme. The car seat, base, and also the stroller are very durable and survived being placed in and out of the car for just over a year without any trouble at all and is still in as good of shape as the day we bought it. I would recommend this car seat to anyone who is in the market for one and is looking for one that will stand the test of time and one you can use with another child.

I love our Chicco KeyFit Carseat!

By 

from Kerrville, TX

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

We love our Chicco KeyFit car seat.  The base was very easy to install.  The instruction manual walks you right through it, but it would be easy to figure out even without the manual.  We used the latch system, but using a seatbelt would be even easier.  The car seat snaps right into the base with no problem.  My husband couldn't believe that was all there was to it!  We like the Adventure color.  It is a nice sage green that isn't as bright as some of their other colors, so it is easier on the eyes.  The newborn inserts are great for when the baby is still small.  We took the bottom insert out pretty quickly because he was long, but he will use the head insert for a while.  It looks like it is pretty comfortable for him.  Our first complaint is that it is really heavy, much heavier than other seats of similar size.  Our other complaint is that he gets really hot in it, but I think most car seats are that way.  Overall, we are very satisfied with this car seat and highly recommend it to our friends.

Amazing car seat for your littlest traveler

By 

from Ann Arbor, MI

Comments about Chicco KeyFit Infant Car Seat:

We got this car seat for our daughter based on the saftey rateing and the consumer report rating and we couldnt have been happier. It was confortable, safe, easy to clean, and easy to install. I espechally loved that the base had a little compartment in it that was just the right size for a couple diapers and a container of wipes incase i forgot the diaper bag.
