Finding the perfect infant car seat took me hours of research as a first time mama trying to find the safest car seat in every way for my little one. Not only did I want a car seat that was the safest on the market, but I also wanted a car seat that was not going to give off toxic fumes for my newborn baby to breath. When it came down to it, I narrowed down to the Chicco KeyFit Zip Baby Car Seat, Hydra and the Britax B-Safe 35 Elite Infant Car Seat – Vibe. The Chicco KeyFit won out for me because of the ease of installation, which is the main area where parents can screw up and endanger their child. Although the Britax won on least amount of harmful chemicals, the Chicco won on safety and this was meant to save my little one in a car accident after all. Installing the base of the Chicco was extremely easy with the latch connectors along with the built-in level.
The Chicco KeyFit also comes with some great bonus accessories: newborn insert, foot cover and visor. I washed everything before my little one arrived to reduce any off-gassing and was very happy with my purchase!
