Video: Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat
The Chicco Keyfit 30 is extremely user friendly, safe for your baby, and lightweight. Let's get into the nitty gritty of it!
To start off, Chicco knows that car seats can be confusing, so they designed each functioning piece with orange accents. This includes the carry handle adjustment buttons, the recline buttons, the harness adjuster, the Super Cinch latch strap adjuster, and more. Now you don't have to question where those buttons are!
In terms of design, the Keyfit 30 has a wide, ergonomic handle to make carrying on your forearm more comfortable. For brand new babies between 4-11 pounds, it comes with a removable pad to keep them snug and safe. Need to make adjustments as your child grows? Simply use the built-in tightener on this car seat's padded 5-point harness. The energy-absorbing EPS foam within the shell adds extra side impact protection. The Keyfit 30 also has an extendable canopy to keep your baby protected from the elements and aide in naps on-the-go. Here's a great bonus: the seat fabric is machine washable! No more hand-scrubbing if baby makes a mess in the car.
Its included base is another major bonus. It has a smooth underside to protect your vehicle seat, and its spring-loaded leveling foot will help you get the appropriate recline. From there, you can install it very easily with the vehicle seatbelt or with the lower anchor connectors. It's Super Cinch LATCH strap tightener makes it one of the simplest installation options I've ever seen! If you're traveling and don't have the base with you, have no fear! There is a direct routing system on the sides of the shell to use with a vehicle seatbelt. Just make sure to check the level line and lock off the seatbelt for safety.
