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!
Looking for a quality, Italian made car seat? The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4-35 rear facing only car seat might be the seat for you. With 2 included infant inserts, deep seat pan, and adjustable no-rethread head support and harness, it is a viable option for both small and large children.
Everything you purchase comes with a manual, whether it is a lawn mower or a DVD player. When you are preparing for a child, multiply that by a bouncer, a high chair, a stroller and a swing. Chances are, you read them to know how to put them together and their basic function.
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 Advance SE 65 Air + convertible car seat is a recent addition to the Safety 1st roster of child restraints. We were excited to take it and its multiple recline positions, a no re-thread harness and generous weight and height allowances out for a spin!
The Evenflo Triumph is not a newcomer to the convertible car seat world; it’s gone through several upgrades over the years and is loved by many for its ease of use features.
UPPAbaby is a new name in the car seat world, but isn’t new to the baby market. Their higher-end strollers have been around for some time. Due to their prestige in the stroller department, I was extremely excited to try out their newest addition of a rear-facing only seat.
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.
*This seat has been discontinued* The Britax Chaperone was one of Britax’ three options for rear facing only seats for new or expectant parents or caregivers. (You can read about the latest model, Britax B-Safe 35 Elite, here.)
Nuna isn’t new to the baby gear scene: their smartly designed strollers, swings, and other baby gear have been making parents’ lives easier for some time. They are new, however, to the car seat scene, and their debut does not disappoint. Nuna gave us the opportunity to review the Nuna Pipa rear facing only seat with all its unique features.
