Ahead of the curve

gb Idan infant car seat, $360
Rear-facing: 4 to 35 pounds

There’s a lot more to this futuristic option than good looks. A load leg minimizes forward rotation in the event of a collision, and an extra-large UV 50 canopy shields your newbie from harsh rays (or nosy strangers).

Innovation station

CYBEX Aton Q infant car seat, $350
Rear-facing: 4 to 35 pounds

The harness automatically adjusts with the eight-position headrest, so you’ve got one less thing to worry about. Speaking of: Telescopic linear side-impact protection and an energy-absorbing shell channel the force of an accident away from your wee one.

Safe and sound

Evenflo Platinum SafeMax All-in-One, $280
Rear-facing: 5 to 40 pounds; forward-facing: 22 to 65 pounds; booster: 40 to 120 pounds

An adjustable, SafeZone impact- absorbing headrest; SureSafe installation; and durable, integrated steel frame help parents feel more secure while on the road with their wee ones. Plus, it’s the first rollover- tested carseat—webbing in the harness limits head excursion and helps prevent ejection from the seat in the event of a crash.
