For newborns: Top Pick: Cybex Cloud Q infant car seat
Why I chose it: I researched car seats a TON before purchasing. I love this seat because it can lay completely flat (the only one on the market that can do this) so if the baby is asleep, I can simply lay him flat when we are not in the car without need to transfer him to the bassinet in the stroller. For the minimalists out there, this can be attached to most popular strollers and then there is no need to buy the bassinet which is only used for 4-6 months anyone and adds a significant extra cost. This car seat also has considerable added safety features.
For older babies: Nuna Rava Convertible car seat
When the baby outgrows the infant car seat.
