The Peg Perego SIP 30/30
It was a tad heavy but otherwise loved everything about it. Easy to wash the cover (just slip right off) never had to removed the harness unless she got the main part dirty. Super easy to install. The strap in by the crotch was like padded. 30 inch 30lb limits. The harness adjusted with one hand. There was a button on the bottom you pushed and could raise the strap the level. It was one of the few that RF in my car.
I have the graco snugride 35. ANd while it is a bit bigger its easy to adjust the straps, and the weight limit is 35 pounds. It has great safety ratings ive used it for both my girls and am using the same kind again with this one.
I had a cheap cosco one that came in a travel system set from walmart. The clips were plastic and you had to fit them together like a puzzle peice to snap them in. The straps were also not adjustable enless you readjusted the metal clips in back. Idk if infant seats have those or not generally? But I love my graco when we got a convertible. She's in a graco comfort sport now. But it's def not for erf.
We had the SnugRide 22 and it was pretty good! Our car is tiny so we couldn't fit any of the larger seats. My only complaint was that you had to adjust the straps from the back, which was kind of a pain. We got the travel system for $99 on clearance at Target, so t was worth it!
We have the combi shuttle 33 and love it!!!! We recently moved my son up to a convertible so we would could use the seat this summer for the new baby but up till last week I could still carry around my son in the seat who weighs 22lbs. Super easy to use . Some people don't like the puzzle crotch buckle but it had never been an issue with myself or my husband .
We had the Maxi Cosi Mico for Chloe. Loved it. The con is that it only goes to 22lbs. But, it has a really tall shell...so it worked perfectly for our long, skinny baby and she was able to use it till 14mo. She might've been able to go longer, but she didn't want to be that reclined anymore...It's light weight and pretty compact, so it was easy to get our youngest kids 3 across [when needed]. I love the modern look & fabric colors. It's also 1 of 3 brands that were compatible with our strollers...we've actually had the other 2 brands [Peg Perego & Graco] w/previous kids and I just wasn't a fan.
If we were to have another, I would be happy to get another Mico...but, would probably try the Maxi Cosi Prezi...it has some amazing features.
