Starting baby in a rear-facing car seat is easy. But keeping your growing child seated in that position through age 2 (that’s the recommendation from the AAP isn’t. Enter the new Chicco Fit2, a car seat designed to help parents keep baby rear-facing—and safe—longer.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • Babies from 4 to 35 pounds can recline snuggly in stage 1. With the flip of a lever, babies over 15 pounds can be propped up for more leg room in stage 2
  • You can use it as a travel system with Chicco strollers
  • Newborns and smaller babies benefit from removable inserts, while a seven-position headrest grows with toddlers
  • Installation is easy: A one-handed level recline helps you get the angle of the base just right

SUMMARY

The extra leg room is a definite infant car seat upgrade. Bonus points to Chicco’s Fit2 for being exceptionally easy for parents to use.

Price: $280
