The #1-rated Infant Car Seat in America!
The KeyFit® 30 is engineered with innovative features that make it the easiest infant car seat to install simply, accurately, and securely, every time. A ReclineSure® leveling foot and two RideRight® bubble level-indicators help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. The base is also equipped with premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch® tightener for a secure fit with a fraction of the effort! For alternate installation with the vehicle seat belt, clear belt routing and integrated lock-offs make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place.  

Tailored for Comfort:
The car seat carrier includes removable head and body support to accommodate newborns as small as 4 pounds. A five-point harness with one-pull tightening helps keep baby secure, and the carrier shell is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for improved impact protection. An adjustable, removable canopy provides shade from the sun.

Built for Everyday Convenience:
The KeyFit® 30 is designed for travel system use with compatible strollers from Chicco. The carrier secures easily to the base and strollers with a reassuring audible click. A two-position carry-handle and one-hand release make it just as easy to remove.

I would recommend Again and again! I got this from target and it was pretty reasonable! My son loves it and I hate that he is growing out of it. I love the color and I would recommend it to everyone, I do already! I love that it can be taken out of the car and set into the caddy!

I absolutely love this brand! It was the best car seat for my babies! Bought at target. It’s light weight which was a big plus for me! It was very easy to clean and the price is great!

For many parents, the deciding factor of a car seat is how well it fits in with their lives. The KeyFit 30 carrier fits with several Chicco strollers, including the Cortina. Also, the base is simple to install in any vehicle. The base has a storage compartment for the installation instructions, but you could easily fit wipes or diapers inside for emergency situations.

The seat cushions are tricky to remove, but once you've taken them off the car seat, you can wash them in a standard washing machine. Unfortunately, the padding does not breathe, and your baby will start to sweat if she or he is in the seat for extended periods. You may want to take a change of clothes with you when you use this car seat, especially during the summer.

You can install this seat with or without the base. That way, you can keep the base in your car. If you ever need to drive your baby in someone else’s car, it’s fully adjustable without the base. You will find instructions on how to do this safely in the manual.

We've been using this seat for my daughter (who just maxed out on the height), and we absolutely LOVE it! Very easy to install, and I love how easy it is to use without the base! We plan on using it for our son due in a few months, too :)

Installing and using this car seat is an absolute breeze. Honestly so sturdy and easy to set up. Getting in and out of the car is as simple as one button and one click to know the seat is secure. Worth every penny to have the peace of mind that my LO is safe and sound. The Viaro travel system was the best purchase from our registry. Highly recommend !!

Pros easy to install and adjustEasy to wipe offCompatible with awesome strollers 
Cons didn't fit my son wellKind of heavyWhile in car babies can't see out of the seat
I probably would repurchase based on the ease of install, but if I found one that had the same ease that fit my son better id jump over to that one.

Is it lightweight? Can you adjust it so baby can lay to sleep or sit up?
