Ahh, car seats…

This morning, I woke up to the sound of Matt Lauer talking about the latest in Consumer Reports infant car seat studies. As a soon-to-be new mom currently researching car seats, you can only imagine how much my ears perked up. There were 2 car seats I was already leaning towards, both by Graco: the SnugRide and the SafeSeat.

Imagine my astonishment to hear that the SafeSeat was not safe at all! It actually flew out of its base in one of the tests! Of course, it wasn’t as bad as the Evenflo Discovery, which propelled the dummy out of the seat altogether.

But the Graco SnugRide performed well, and ended up being one of the two seats recommended by Consumer Reports (the other is by Baby Trend). So it certainly narrows down the selection of car seats to consider. Now it’s a matter of deciding on the travel system that works best for us…
