Modern wonder

CYBEX Cloud Q, $450
Rear-facing: birth to 35 pounds
“The Cloud Q is possibly nicer than my actual vehicle! It’s not only beautiful, but it’s also incredibly safe, thanks to a load leg and telescopic side-impact protection. The neatest part: It can fully recline to transition into a carrycot outside of the car.”

Cool kid

Chicco KeyFit 30 Zip Air, $240
Rear-facing: 4-30 pounds
“The Zip Air’s breathable mesh fabric keeps my tot cool as a cucumber, so she can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. On chilly days, the zip-around boot is a nice perk.”

Sunny disposition

Baby Jogger City Go, $230
Rear-facing: 4-35 pounds
“The first thing I noticed about the City Go was the material. It feels comfy but also easy to clean should spills or accidents happen en route. The large canopy is UV50+, a definite plus for keeping tots made in the shade.”

Rear-facing: 5-40 pounds / Forward-facing: 22-65 pounds / Booster: 40-120 pounds
“You’ll be hard-pressed to find a seat as versatile as the SafeMax All-in-One! It’s deep and wide with extra padding on the sides for protection. Our toddler and our little guy are equally happy when we buckle them in.”

On the up and up

BOB B-Safe 35 by Britax, $230
Rear-facing: 4-35 pounds

“I love the contours and sturdy shell of the B-Safe 35. It’s narrower than other models I’ve used, and that slim silhouette keeps our baby upright and snug, which she prefers. It also means less split-up in the car, which I prefer.”
