Promising review: "I am the type to read reviews on items and go on other site to compare. This seat is PERFECT!! My 3 year old is 3 feet 5 inches, 53 lbs and is growing as I'm typing this review. She just turned 3, so understand I am constantly purchasing clothing, car seats, strollers, shoes, etc. This seat has plenty of room for her to grow. It's very well made, looks exactly like the pictures, is soft, easy to assemble, and is all around perfect!! The best part is my daughter LOVES it!! She asked if she could sleep in it tonight! I would recommend this 1000 times over!" — Heather Saul

Promising review: "I have had this carseat close to a year now, and I am still loving it! My son first started using it at 7 months old, and he has loved it ever since. I love that it grows with the child, it's very padded and comfortable, easy to install, and compact. The padding comes off so easily to wash, which is a big positive for me. For the quality of this carseat, it comes at a great price. I have had no issues with it." — stephany

infant car seat because carrying around a baby is hard enough and your car seat shouldn't make you feel like you're lifting iron at the gym.
Plus, it has an adjustable base with four recline positions, hold babies 4-35 lbs, and offers a hassle-free installation.
Promising review: "This car seat is working out great! It's really simple to use, the base stays in the car and the seat detaches very easily. I am only 5'2" and very petite, and I can carry the seat around. I love the insert to keep newborns in a comfortable position, it must be super comfy because my son stays asleep in the seat for usually an hour or two after we get home. It's very nice-looking, and I love that it doesn't make my car look like the baby fairy redecorated it." — cornflake girl
Price: $124.99+ (available in 10 styles)

Promising review: "After doing some research and reading reviews, we decided on this convertible seat for our 4-month-old baby boy. He was starting to HATE his infant seat, so it was time to switch. This carseat changed car rides for us completely! He loves it! We love it. And as he is at the high 90 percentiles for height, I love the adjustable leg room. I would definitely recommend!" — Andrea B.

Grab-and-Go booster seat that's so small you can easily slip it into a backpack or bag to make traveling super simple.
This booster is designed for kids aged 4 and up, 40-100 pounds. It folds up to be 10 times smaller than a regular booster seat, so you can use it on a plane, bus, or even taxi.
Promising review: "I love these seats. I bought two because we were going to be traveling, and it’s always a hassle to take along the big boosters. These are so much easier! They fit my kids well, and if you do it properly, these seats are just as safe as a regular booster. The difference I am seeing is that a regular booster boosts the kids up do the seat belt fits the kids, while these hold the seat belt down so the belt fits the kids. This is one of the best purchases I’ve made, and it makes it easier on me and my kids during travel." — Amazon Customer
Price: $30.32+ (available in six colors)
high-back booster seat – for this one, you can even schedule a live video installation session, so you *know* that it will be installed correctly.
It switch from a high-back booster to a no-back booster, has two cup holders, and is made from machine-washable fabric. It fits kids 40-100 pounds.
Promising review: "Car seats can get ridiculously expensive, but this one was on the more affordable end while still being a good product. It was also fairly easy to put together, which is always a plus. It’s been a hit with my daughter who loves feeling more grown up." — Kristina P.
Price: $32.99+ (available in five colors)
Clek Fllo because having a baby doesn't mean you should compromise on your style—or safety.
It has a compact design, so you can place three across a backseat. It can be rear-facing for up to 50 lbs because it has a steel anti-rebound for better safety.
Promising review: "This is a perfect, sleek, simple, modern carseat! We wanted something that went with the interior of our car and didn't stand out from our typical style, and this fit the bill! These seats are very sturdy. It seems super safe, and we feel very comfortable buckling our daughter into it. Also, it is pretty narrow, so we can fit three carseats in our first back row. Just as a friendly reminder these seats sit up very high! I love it and will probably not buy any other brand from here on out." — Kindle Customer
simple one certified to use on an airplane to make traveling over the holidays (or any other time of the year) so very easy.
It can be either front- or rear-facing and accommodate kids up to 50 lbs.
Promising review: "I can't believe we bought a $300 car seat and didn't buy this first. We originally bought it just for travel since it's SO light, and if it gets damaged, it's not the end of the world. Our two year old actually likes this way more, so we end up using this one most of the time. It doesn't have all the little nooks and crannies like our expensive one, so I'm not constantly digging crumbs out with this one. Just as easy to install as the rest. DEFINITELY buy." — CLC
Price: $59.96+ (available in four colors)
all-in-one convertible seat that fits children from birth to 120 pounds so you only need one car seat from the day you bring them home from the hospital to (basically) the day you send them off to college.
Plus, it has a 12-position adjustable headrest and infant support cushions.
Promising review: "This seat is awesome! I bought this seat because I needed a narrow seat to help me fit this and two boosters in the back row of my new, smaller, SUV. This seat is narrow and upright, meaning there's much more room for my kids to get in and out and be comfortable. Moreover, this seat is rock solid. My last convertible seat moved a little and couldn't be fastened tightly into the seat. This one doesn't budge at all, and while heavy, it's sturdy and I feel confident my child is safe and protected in this seat. It's expensive, but well worth the price." — Lori
Price: $239.99+ (available in nine colors)
LE Harness + Booster designed with a true four-position recline so your little one can nap comfortably in the car.
It also has a nine-position headrest and can be used with kids 25-100 lbs, and has a cup holder and one covered snack holder.
Promising review: "I have been looking and looking for a forward facing car seat that will recline. We go on road trips on the weekends ,and it would bother me that my son would fall asleep, and his head would fall forward. We tried the headbands but that wasn't reliable, and I kept thinking what if it ends up across his throat, but you never know. I am so delighted and happy with this car seat and it is worth the price. My son can rest, and I don't have to worry about his head falling forward. Thank you!" — kc87319
Price: $249.99 (available in black and purple)
convertible one that has a one-hand adjust so you can multitask like the true parent you are.
It has four positions that will hold your child from when they're born to when they weigh 120 pounds. Plus, it has a six-position recline and two cup holders.
Promising review: "So you have to take your baby out of the seat every time and carry them with you in your arms, but who cares! This is the best carseat ever! It's so damn sturdy and tilts back for your newborns perfectly! My baby girl has to ride in the car for two hours to her doctor, there and back, she is happy the whole time. I don't trust a carseat you take in and out of a car over and over again. The baby trend with a base we had made her scream bloody murder almost the whole time. I am confident with this carseat, and I'm so happy it gives me one less thing to be crazy mom about." — Nerdy OCD

seat your little Mouseketeer will love riding in till they're old enough to sing "M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E" on their own.
The seat hold babies up to 40 lbs and can be both rear and forward facing. Plus, it has two cup holders.
Promising review: "I bought this seat when I saw it on sale, and I couldn't be happier with it. The seat is well cushioned and the material is easy to clean. It also doesn't take up as much space as the previous rear facing seat we had. The only thing I could mark down for is that it is a tiny bit wider than I was expecting, but I didn't feel like it was that big of an issue as it is no wider than any other car seat we have used. The straps are easy to adjust, it is cute and sleek, and it is very easy to get my son in and out, which was a struggle with our previous seat. All around, it's a very nice product." — Liverlou05
Price: $59.99+ (available in six colors)

The three positions can hold you child from 22-100 pounds. Plus it has a machine washable seat pad, body insert and a harness cover for ultimate comfort.
Promising review: "This child safety seat... I can't say enough good things about it! I only wish I had known it existed long ago. My children, 6 and 3, are in 5-point harnesses, and they are ESCAPE ARTISTS. They can not seem to grasp that they are not allowed to unbuckle themselves while we are hurtling down the freeway just because they missed me and wanted a hug. But these... these are amazing. They are comfortable, they are easily and quickly adjustable, the colors are BEAUTIFUL, and the buckles are damn near impossible for them to undo on their own. THANK YOU, GRACO!!!! They're easy install, easy to adjust, easy to clean if your kid says they are gonna puke and you don't believe them, but then they do... all around great seat, especially for the price!!" — Amy Knighten

Maxi-Cosi Pria reviewers say kept their children comfortable and stopped them from screaming in the car.
It's recommended for babies 14-85 pounds and is designed with a patented ~Air Protect~ advanced cushioning system to keep your baby safe and comfortable.
Promising review: "Our infant hated his car seat carrier that was compatible with his stroller. He would scream most of the time in the vehicle. After trying other options, and researching blogs, we purchased this car seat. I don't know for sure if this did the trick, but I do know, after about a week, he no longer cried constantly in his car seat, and even falls asleep on a regular basis. We have bought this car seat for both vehicles now. He still cries occasionally, but usually not for as long and not as often. This car seat is bulky, but does fit just fine in my Subaru Outback. This car seat does have a minimum weight limit of 14 pounds, but luckily, our son was above that weight pretty early on. The only downside to having this car seat is not being able to carry around in it; it is permanent and for inside the car only. Since he wasn't falling asleep in his other car seat anyway, it is not that big of a deal for me. Overall, we love this car seat, and have purchased two of them, because our son seems to like it much better as well. I don't know if another convertible car seat would have been just as good." — dee
Price: $219.99+ (available in eight colors)
Topside Booster car seat with extra plush padding on the seat to make longer car rides go by without your kid asking, "Are we there yet?" every five minutes.
Okay, I can't guarantee that your kid will stop asking that every five minutes, but they're less likely to when their butt isn't falling asleep. The seat is designed to fit kids weighing 40-100 pounds.
Promising review: "My daughter outgrew her high back booster and wanted something more portable and smaller. This fits the bill. She loves that it is so lightweight she can carry it herself. She is 9 years old and about 60 lbs. It is perfect for her. It felt hard when we pulled it out of the box, and I was worried she would say it was uncomfortable, but she is loving it!! For the price, you can't beat it!" — Two Girls of Mine
Price: $17.99+ (available in four colors)
TruboBooster that has two hideaway cups because who wants to hear your kid yelling, "I'm thirsty" for the whole car ride?
The booster raising kids to the proper height for the seat belt. It's recommended for kids who are 40-100 pounds.
Promising review: "These are my favorite booster seats. They are usually a little more than other brands, but I have found them to be worth it. Other brands flip when the kids get in and out or lack the cup holders. This style remains in place when the kids get in and out of the car. Cup holders are not just for cups, and having one on each side is so convenient. The kids put their snack in one side and drink in the other, or use them for toys. The covers stay pretty clean on their own and remove for washing very easily. I bought these to go in Grandma's car since the kids and I like the ones we have so much. Grandma loves them, and the car seats, too!" — Anika Tyler
