Best Baby Travel Systems
Britax is one of the leading names when it comes to safe child restraints. Their Safe Cell Impact Protection system exceeds all federal safety standards. This car seat holds 4 – 35 pounds and is compatible with any Britax single stroller and vice versa. The narrow design and swivel front wheels make it easier to navigate through tighter spaces. A lightweight and one-handed fold design make this a popular system.
Like most of these products, you’ll pay for the best quality. It’s a pricey system, but considering it’s multi uses and longevity (from newborn to toddler), it may be a worthwhile investment. Some problems parent noted were that the width was too narrow, so didn’t fit larger babies well. Others had issues with wheel stability and attaching the car seat to the stroller.
Please note there have been recalls on this seat in 2017. However, an updated version MAY be available. Call Britax and check the recall registry on NHTSA for current recalled models.

This may be the cutest system on our list, and it’s no surprise with this Minnie Mouse design. There’s also a Mickey for the boys. This is an affordable system that won’t put too big a dent in your wallet. The car seat fits babies from 4- 22 pounds. Both seat and stroller have an adjustable, quilted canopy to provide good insulation on those cooler days.
Unfortunately, the weight range on this car seat isn’t as much as others, so you’ll have to buy a new seat sooner than later. Parents noted issues with steering. Some strollers had missing parts. A few parents reported the car seat handle was difficult to move.
- Quilted canopy
- Mickey and Minnie designs
