It’s finally here! The day we’ve all been waiting for. Clek Foonf’s little sister has arrived, Fllo! The Clek Fllo is just as stylish and modern looking at the Foonf and this Tank color is pretty awesome. The weight was definitely a welcome surprise!

In February 2014 a new name in the car seat world took us by surprise. Meet the newest addition to the Wal-mart car seat lineup, the Urbini Petal rear facing only car seat.
When Graco announced the 4Ever 4-in-1 car seat, we were thrilled to have the chance to take a close look at it. It turns out to be a seat that works well in all 4 modes and we’re happy to list it on our Recommended Seats page. When the 4Ever’s new cousin, the Milestone, arrived on the scene, we were just as excited about taking a look under the hood!
When Britax announced their Click Tight technology, the CPST world was all ears. Was it possible that almost all guesswork could be removed from car seat installation? Could a new system make misuse nearly impossible?
I’ll start this review with a confession: I’m a huge fan of Britax seats. My oldest daughter rode in a Britax Wizard for most of her rear facing years and my younger daughter still rides in a Britax Boulevard occasionally.

For the record, the “best” seat is the one that the caregiver can install and use properly *every* time.

When Graco announced their first 4-in-1 car seat, I was parts suspicious and parts intrigued. In general, multi-mode child restraints tend to fall short in at least one mode. It’s no small task to make a restraint suitable for a 4 lb newborn all the way up through an 80 lb 10-year-old.
The Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite is one of Safety 1st’s many offerings for rear facing only seats. The Comfy Carry Elite is a lower priced seat, with a good range of features that make it easy to use. It is also a good seat for fitting smaller newborns, and preemies. With a retail price of $59.99, it’s a budget-friendly option for baby’s first ride.
The Safety 1st Complete Air is a nicely priced, lightweight convertible seat that fits in some narrow spaces, but can take up quite a bit of room front to back.
What five-year old kiddo wouldn’t want a pink zebra seat? What parent doesn’t want a seat that harnesses to 50 pounds and turns into both a high back and no back booster for under $100? Without further ado, let us introduce you to the Baby Trend Hybrid 3-in-1 combination seat.
