If you have a small car, you know how difficult it can be to fit a rear facing only car seat in it. We decided to put 25 rear facing only car seats to the test and find which seats take up the least amount of front to back space. Remember that all seats fit differently in different vehicles, so even though you find a seat that takes up less front to back space, that doesn’t mean it will fit correctly in every vehicle. It’s always suggested that you try before you buy.
I run a busy car seat inspection station and expectant parents are some of my most frequent clients. That means I see a whole lot of infant seats. I always breathe a sigh of relief when I’m scheduling an appointment and a parent tells me their seat is a Chicco KeyFit; because it’s just so easy.
The Chicco NextFit is the long anticipated convertible car seat offering from Chicco, who brought us the much-loved Chicco KeyFit rear facing only seat. The NextFit delivers in all the same ease of use features we love about the KeyFit, and offers a great option for extended rear facing.
