Sacrificing price for quality can prove otherwise costly and disastrous in the long run. While the economy has made us all cut back on expenses, it is necessary to find a car seat as reliable as the Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat. The Chicco Keyfit 30 claims that it’s one of the few top rated infant car seats in the market and I can see the reason why.

First, gone are the days when you need to sacrifice safety with style. The Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat delivers both. It comes with a 5 point latch system to keep your baby in place even in car crashes. On the other hand, the car seat comes in a variety of color combinations to suit your preference. The product’s strength is also from the fact that it can be used by infants and babies weighing up until the 30 lb. mark.


  • Recommended for children weighing up to 30 lbs
  • 5 point harness with a center pull latch system for secure installation
  • Full-body infant insert for newborn babies (4-11 lbs)
  • Energy Absorbing Foam (EPS) seat interior
  • Bubble level indicator for easy installation
  • Spring assisted level foot for recline options
  • Ergonomically designed carry handle
  • Removable seat padding and head support

The Good

Chicco Keyfit 30′s Hassle-Free Installation

chicco-keyfit-30-infant-car-seatAmong the most highly praised feature of the Chicco Keyfit 30 is its easy and quick installation. True enough with what has been written about the product, installing the base can only take a minute or two max. The Latch system is easy to figure out and the belt installation and adjustment process requires only a quick patch up. You’re supposed to hear an audible click as a signal that the car seat is secured in the base.  Parents like me who don’t want to waste their much needed time and energy can rely on the fool proof Chicco Keyfit 30 installation.

5 Point Harness System

In addition, your baby can be secured with the 5 point central latch system that protects him or her against unfortunate events. Unlike other car seats, the Chicco Keyfit 30 takes out the guesswork in installing car seats. It comes with a ‘center-pull’ latch system that centralizes adjustments only on the central latch.

Comes with a Base for Easy Car Switch

At first glance, the car seat seems to be a little expensive but this product comes with a car seat and its corresponding base. The car seat base will be very handy to help you save time and energy in going in and out of the car easily. There is no need then to unstrap and awaken the baby when switching over cars. We’ve also known that the base of the car seat has an improved smooth underside which can limit damages on the vehicle’s seat.

Removable Head Support and Storage Options

A lot of other small things make the Chicco Keyfit 30 a great rear-facing car seat choice for parents. For one, it has a removable head support and seat padding for better comfort. It also features a precision bubble level sign indicator that confirms a car seat’s recline level. You’ll also see a neat special compartment in the car seat for your baby needs. A storage space that is convenient and close to the baby is always a delight.

The Bad

During summer, the car seat can be a little hot for the baby. The side of the head that rests in the cushion can be sweaty so constant monitoring is recommended.

The car seat won’t fit shopping carts. Placing them on shopping carts though can pose a danger of them falling off because of uneven weight distribution.

The weight of the car seat itself without the base can be on the heavy side for some parents. While I’d like to think that at least it’s not made of cheap plastic, some parents found it too heavy to carry around.


I know that taking care of your newborn baby is hard enough as it is. It is important then to find equipment such as the Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat which can make a lot of things more manageable. I love that it has a 5 point latch system and center-pull latch access. Those two would be more than enough to keep my baby safe at all times. Chicco Keyfit 30 is also very easy to install. I absolutely adore this because no matter how expensive and ‘safe’ a car seat is, it’s never safe if it is not installed properly. Chicco know this and they have made the installation really easy
