3. Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Convertible
The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Convertible seat is almost as impressive as its brother the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio4-35 infant car seat, but it misses the mark with this stiff competition. It is a nice seat that scored well for quality, comfort, and ease of use and it installs easily using LATCH or the vehicle belt. The seat is 18.5″ wide at its widest point, which is at the torso of the child. The seat weighs 21 pounds, which makes it the lightest seat I’ve reviewed so far that allows 45 pounds of rear-facing goodness. It is a nice seat that scored well for quality, comfort, and ease of use and it installs easily using LATCH or the vehicle belt. This Peg has a nice design with storage for components and a smooth looking fit and finish. Peg Perego is an Italian company that makes a variety of baby products including car seats, strollers, and ride on toys.
The award winning Doona car seat converts from an infant car seat into a compact stroller! Ideal for nipping out and about with baby, it means there is no need for a stroller or car seat carrier in the trunk of the car. Using the Doona Car Seat Without a Base. One of the best things about using Doona on the go is that you can use it in car seat mode without the latch base. Below we have provided instructions for securing the Doona car seat in a vehicle using either the lap-shoulder belt of the middle seat lap belt. Their key focus was ensuring that a baby is safe and comfortable both inside and outside the car. The Doona is a safe alternative to your existing infant 0+ car seat only.
The Graco 4ever All-in-One convertible car seat is meant to last from birth to when your child no longer needs a safety seat. Either they lack enough recline in rear-facing mode or children grow out of them way before the listed maximum weight, among other things. This car seat base is not compatible with the Graco 4Ever All in One Convertible Car Seat. The Graco 4Ever car seat does not have a base that is detachable. The Graco 4Ever car seat is meant to stay in the vehicle. The Graco 4ever is more expensive. The Graco 4everhas a higher forward-facing height limit.

6. Baby Trend
Graco Fast Action Fold Jogger Click Connect Baby Travel System. The Graco Fastaction Fold Jogger Travel System is one Graco’s better rated and bestselling car seat and stroller combo’s for running. It compares roughly to the Baby Trend Expedition in price but doesn’t get quite as good customer reviews overall. Both of the front wheels can be locked for added stability while jogging. Both of the strollers have separate brakes for each tire in the back. The Baby Trend also has a more grippy handle, which I personally like better when jogging. Both strollers have a child snack tray with 2 cup holders and a place to put treats. Some strollers fully recline orcan be used with a bassinet attachment or an infant-only car seat.
