Give me your infant seat reccomendations ladies. Feeling a bit overwhelmed here.
ks3pink:I think it was the Graco Snugride 30. We chose it because of the larger weight range, it starts at 4 lbs which I felt good about with twins but also goes up further than most I had seen.
we went with this as well
Medhp00:I'm going with the Britax B-Safe. I'm a FTM, so I'm basically making this decision after research and the recommendation of a friend rather than my own experience. I hope it's as nice as I've been told .
Chicco Keyfit 30. Used it for DS1 and loved it. Using it again for DS2. I was glad to get the Keyfit 30 (takes a baby up to 30 lbs) because my 7lb 12oz (at birth) boy would have outgrown a 20 or 22 pound limit seat by 7 months old. It did get heavy by then, so we took him in and out of the seat instead of taking the seat in and out of the car. It is one of the safest seats available (according to Consumer Reports) which is why we bought it.
We bought it in a Travel System with the Chicco Cortina Stroller. I highly recommend this stroller too.
We chose this one, and are currently on the prowell for another carseat.
We got the Diono Radian RXT because we're going to have to have three seats across for at least the next 3 years and we wanted all the kiddo's to fit.
We also have a Britax Boulevard that I love, but it's just too large to be safely installed with the others, and we'd have to upgrade at 65 lbs anyway.
Chicco KeyFit 30. Easy to install/use. Great safety ratings. Higher weight/height limit than other brands. Durable (held up through 2 babies and counting). Easy to clean (most pieces are machine washable).
HTH and GL!

Ditto on the Chicco Keyfit 30. This travel system and carseat alone seemed to have the most consistent reviews for everything I was looking at. I have no idea what my reviews will be after I actually start using it, but for now, it's sitting in my hallway. My most recent post has pics if you wanna check it out.

I've heard good things about the seats safety and comfort wise AND they are light weight to carry without being unsafe. That and they fit in our stroller.
Also. Super cute bonus! I had looked at a ton of the solid color ones and then we spotted this one, LOVED it.
We discovered that DD's chicco cortina keyfit isnt expired as we had originally thought so we will end up using that. I loved it.
Our friends gave us a graco snug and ride 35.

Buona Fortuna: Medhp00:I'm going with the Britax B-Safe. I'm a FTM, so I'm basically making this decision after research and the recommendation of a friend rather than my own experience. I hope it's as nice as I've been told . This. My DH researched carseats pretty extensively and he decided this was the one for us. We got the B agile stroller with it too.
All of this
yvdukana:We also went with the Britax B-Safe. We got the B-Agile stroller, so it made the most sense. I was torn for a long time over the B-Safe or the Chicco Keyfit 30, but in the end they were very comparable, and knowing we were going with the B-Agile stroller over the BJCM and didn't have to buy an extra carseat adapter for the stroller really won us over.
