What are the best brands of car seats?

Every infant car seat, convertible car seat, and booster seat on the market undergoes rigorous testing to ensure that it provides adequate protection. And when you install any car seat correctly, regardless of the brand or model, your child is well-protected.


With that said, we carry the brands that we think are best; our selection includes brands that we consider the most innovative, as well as brands that we feel give you the best value for your dollar. They’re all great, but here are some highlights:


  • UPPAbaby: The UPPAbaby Vista stroller is a major favorite among our customers, followed closely by the Cruz. If you’re rocking either of these snazzy stroller models, then the MESA Infant Car Seat is an automatic yes! You can pop your MESA onto either UPPA stroller without purchasing an additional adapter – it’s just too easy. 




  • Nuna: Along with snazzy European style and an impressively light weight (7.7 pounds!), the Nuna Pipa adds rigid lower LATCH for easy installation, a stability leg that reduces forward motion up to 90%, and the stylish and convenient Dream Drape for weather protection and cozy napping. Their Lite Collection (the Pipa Lite and Pipa Lite LX) are among the lightest infant car seats we've ever seen at 5.3 and 5.7 pounds! After they've outgrown the Pipa, they can graduate to the Nuna Rava Convertible Car Seat, featuring an incredibly easy installation and all the safety bells and whistles, 


  • Cybex: The Cybex Cloud Q infant car seat includes both a load leg and Linear Side-Impact Protection, a feature that looks so simple but adds so much: it improves safety in side-impact collisions up to 40%! The best part? The Cloud Q can RECLINE once it's removed from your car for a comfier baby and longer naps. 


  • Clek: This fabulous premium brand boasts unique and beautiful design, plus light but strong magnesium frames and easy-to-install rigid LATCH. The Clek Foonf and Clek Fllo Convertible Car Seats have an anti-rebound bar and a patented energy absorption system, and they're surprisingly narrow – a great choice for three-across installation. And the Oobr and Olli boosters combine great safety features with a look that will make older kids eager to sit in their booster.


  • Diono: This brand offers a variety of convertible seats, many of which transform into boosters, offering amazing value. Plus, the steel frames, high rear-facing weight limits, and terrific ease of use make Diono seats a great buy. Oh, and the Radian folds flat for travel!


  • Britax: These USA-made seats are  well-trusted and well-loved – everyone you know will recommend them. There are also a myriad of Britax choices, and we carry lots of them. Their ClickTight line makes car seat installation as easy as buckling a seatbelt.
