CarseatBlog’s Updated List of Recommended Carseats for Preemies & Multiples!

We’re happy to announce that we’ve updated our list of Recommended Infant Carseats for Preemies & Multiples! Our original list of Best Bets in this category included the original Chicco KeyFit & KeyFit 30, Britax Chaperone & B-Safe, Safety 1st onBoard 35 & onBoard 35 Air. Since we posted that list of recommendations over a year ago we’ve reviewed several new or updated infant seats that we feel comfortable adding to the list.

Please join me in welcoming the Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Plus, the new Graco SnugRide 35 (specifically, the newest model rated down to 4 lbs) and the Evenflo Embrace 35. All of these seats have a minimum weight rating of 4 lbs, fit our preemie doll well, are easy to use correctly and are relatively easy to install properly in a variety of vehicles.  We have links to the full reviews for each of these seats as well as other important information on our page dedicated to preemies and carseat issues.

Additionally, we’re very pleased that three of the seats on our new expanded list are priced under $100! The Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Plus, Safety 1st onBoard 35 and Evenflo Embrace 35 are all what I like to call “budget-friendly”.  And let’s face it – price and value are always important but those factors take on special meaning if you’re operating on a tight budget and/or if you’re faced with the reality of having to buy two, three (or more!) of everything.

Here at CarseatBlog we really appreciate the fact that CR manufacturers are paying more attention to the needs of preemies and low birthweight babies. With eight infant carseats now on our list, in all different price ranges, this is a giant leap in the right direction. Hopefully we’ll be able to recommend a few more options (including convertible seats) in the near future!

 

Hot Amazon Deals on some of our Favorite CRs from Britax, Evenflo, Clek & More!

Some of these Amazon deals may have longevity but most are going to be strictly “while supplies last”, so don’t dilly-dally if you find a great price on something you really need or just seriously want.  I’ve only listed items with FREE SHIP and in most cases FREE RETURNS just in case it doesn’t work out.  Here at CarseatBlog.com we always recommend that you “try before you buy” but we understand that’s just not possible in many situations. Free shipping with free returns, in case it doesn’t pan out for whatever reason, is the next best thing!
