Review: Chicco Keyfit 30 Car Seat

When my husband and I found out we were expecting #3 we immediately said we have to get a good car seat. With our previous two children we weren't educated on them and we had a bigger car. We own a Chevrolet Trail Blazer and fitting three kids who are all in car seats was going to be a tight fit. When looking for a car seat we had to factor in how big it was. We weren't to worried about price since money doesn't save lives. 

We found the Chicco Keyfit 30 Car Seat. We measured our car and then looked at the dimension of the car seat. The features of this car seat were good too. It also had a lot of good reviews. 

  • Features: Removeable Canopy, Ergonomic Handle
  • Includes: Car Seat, Car Seat Base
  • Safety and Security Features: Rear Facing Only, 5-Point Harness
  • Certifications: Meets ASTM Standards
  • Care and Cleaning: Spot Clean Only
  • Rear Facing:Minimum Weight: 4 Lb.; Maximum Weight: 30 Lb., Maximum Height: 30 "
  • Material: Plastic
  • Dimensions: 22.0 " H x 17.0 " W x 24.0 " D
  • Weight: 16.4 Lb

We loved that it had a 5-Point Harness. We had Reid in this car seat until he was 30lbs. He was never uncomfortable. The car seat came with a support for their head.

If I had to give this car seat a rating it would be without a question a 5! My husband and I were very pleased with our decision. If your on the fence about what car seat to get, give this one serious thought!

I wrote this review on my own time. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this post.


  1. Sounds like a great carseat! We put our kids in Britax seats from the beginning so we wouldn't have to deal with the transition but I love how easy this one looks to use.

  2. Sounds like a great car seat. My husband and I want to start trying soon for a baby so I am researching and starting to stock up on baby items.

  3. chicco has really good products.

  4. I wish that they had 30lb infant seats when we were buying ours. Our babies are so tiny they would have fit in those until they turned 3yo! :)

  5. Looks like a great car seat! Thanks for the informative review!

  6. Looks great! Thanks for the post.

  7. Sounds great! So many safety features and looks great too! Thanks for the review.

  8. This looks like a great car seat. I like that it comes with a 5 point harness and a support for their head. Comfort is very important so I am glad to hear that this seat was comfortable. Thank you for the great review!
