Best Car Seat for Small Cars

Best Car Seat for Small Cars

I learned the hard way how important it was to do research on baby car seat sizes as I couldn’t fit the first baby car seat to my Sedan.

After learning about baby car seat regulations and knowing that I’d need to get a baby car seat immediately I deliver my newborn infant, I got a car seat without doing proper research on the car seat sizes. If you have any small car such as Toyota Corolla Sedan, you should make sure you’re getting a car seat that measures 16″ Wide or lower. They are a few car seats of such sizes and we’ve ranked the top car seats for any car with limited rear and front-seat space.

The Honda Civic above is similar to several Sedans such as Honda Fit, Honda Odyssey, Audi, Toyota Corolla, among others. Their space at the back and at the front are not as big and they score poorly on safety. Here is a scorecard for Honda Civic:

Additionally, this convertible seat is easy to transport by carrying it on your back, something you don’t get with most convertible seats. Diono RXT also comes with a steel frame and rear-facing top tether, which keeps the seat from moving in the event of an accident. It is also an excellent option for a twin car seat.

  • Accommodates from birth to 120 lbs.

Best Sit And Stand Strollers

Sit and stand baby strollers are ideal for parents with more than one child

Like most families that have more than one child, I was buried in research as I expected my second born. You may think that any of these top-rated strollers would work in all situations but that’s not true.

For parents with multiple children or toddlers, having a sit and stand stroller makes going for a walk much easier on the parents. Sit n stand strollers allow one child to sit while the other child can walk until they get tired and still have a place to stand or sit. My team and I have spent tens of hours over a span of three weeks to come up with this list.

How we ranked them

We used the following 6 features to rank and compare all these sit and stand strollers:

  1. Harnesses: We ranked those with two harnesses better than those with a single harness.
  2. Weight of stroller: Light ones did better than heavier ones
  3. Foldability: Foldable ones did better
  4. Number of seats: Strollers that have an option of having a second seat did better
  5. Compatibility with car seats
  6. Handlebars

A sit n stand stroller helps out those parents who already have the older sibling and need something to help keep both children within arms reach. They also have places to store toys and other accessories to keep your children entertained on longer walks.

Sit and stand strollers help parents who have an active lifestyle to keep it. These strollers are compact and lightweight. Interchangeable parts are an important feature to look for in these strollers. Be sure to check on weight issues, to be sure that designed to fit both your children.

Some of these strollers can easily be detached and used as a car seat. The more uses you have for these interchangeable parts will mean the fewer accessories you will have to buy for your children. Always check the specials or sales area of any merchant to see if they have these specialty strollers on sale or at a reduced rate.Sit and Stand Strollers

Best Car Seat Travel Bags

Best Car Seat Travel Bags

For $20 to $30, you can get yourself a car seat travel bag that can secure your seat and your baby luggage as your fly. You should note that if your car seat is FAA approved, you can carry the seat to the plane seating area and your baby can actually get their seat.

If it is not FAA approved, you’ll need to check the bag as a luggage. It is free to fly with the car seat as luggage or as a seat for your baby on the plane.

The bigger problem that parents have experienced when flying with a baby and with a car seat is the problem of the car seat getting damaged at the end of the flight.

A travel bag can guarantee you that your $200 to $500 infant car seat or convertible car seat arrives at the other end of your destination intact.

Review of the best travel bags for car seats:

1. Gate Check PRO Car Seat Travel Bag

Gate Check Pro is our overall best car seat travel bag that is made of ballistic nylon and is compatible with all leading brand car seats. Gate Check Pro measures 17 x 47 x 26 inches which is enough to store most car seats.

Gate check

Parents prefer this Gate check Pro because it almost guarantees that it will not tear up. Thanks to the material are used to make it. For less than $30, you can secure your car seat and to add, FAA administration officials are aware of this brand. They wouldn’t bother you asking whether it is actually a bag for a car seat.

If you doubt this bag, you can rely on the lifetime guarantee. One parent used this bag to store Britax Marathon convertible car seat on a flight from Ohio to Florida and they couldn’t be more happy with this brand.

2. Angel Baby car seat travel bag

Angel baby car seat travel bag is our second best travel bag in 2019 and is cheaper than Gate Check Pro above. It costs less than $20 and is made from durable polyester material.

Polyester and Nylon are both great but I like Angel baby because of its dimensions of 34in. x 18in. x 18in. (86.4cm x 45.7cm x 45.7cm). Essentially, it is bigger than Gate Check Pro whose dimensions are ; 17 x 47 x 26 inches.

3. J.L. Childress Ultimate Backpack Padded Car Seat Travel

J.L Childress car seat travel bag is our third bag you can rely on to carry and store your baby’s car seat while traveling or flying. It is currently the best-selling brand under the car seat carriers category on Amazon and it costs less than $40. It comes in two colors, black and grey and parents really like this brand because it has backpack straps that allow you to move around without having your hands engaged to carrying your car seat in some airport. It also has padded interior wings to protect your baby car seat headrest.

Its dimensions are; 19.5 x 11 x 7 inches and weigh 2.9 pounds. Over 2,300 parents have rated this product 4.4/5 on Amazon and that goes to tell you that is a favorite for parents that travel a lot.

J.L brand also has another brand of car seat travel bag which costs less than $20. As of this publication in November, it is selling for about $16 and similar to J.L Ultimate bag, it comes in two colors; red and grey. Unlike J.L Brand ultimate brand that costs almost three times, the J.L Childress Gate Check Bag for Car Seats (red one shown alongside) is not recommended to be checked in as airline baggage because it is not approved to be handled by luggage-handling machinery. It also weighs 7.2 pounds, heavier than the J.L ultimate brand.
