A few weeks ago I posted a story about choosing the best stroller. One of my criteria was that it was compatible with a good infant car seat. We ended up choosing the Peg Perego Pliko P3 stroller. I didn’t mention anything about the actual car seat that goes with it at the time, so I’ll fix that right now.

The matching car seat is called the Peg Perego Primo Viaggiocar seat. There are several things that we like about this chair. First, it’s one of the highest rated car seats on the market. Second, it has a base that stays permanently in your vehicle, and the car seat simply clips into the base. It actually couldn’t be any easier to put the seat in the car and remove it. It clips in with a gently push, and comes out by just pulling a little lever on the seat.

Even better is the fact that the car seat is rated to be used without it’s base, attaching it to a car with a seatbelt. This is really handy when visiting other people or travelling, as you can jump in whatever car you need to without the need to swap bases out or add any equipment to another car. It would also be fantastic for use in a Taxi.

The Primo Viaggio is also available in a whole range of colors to match the interior of your car, or simply to compliment a color scheme that you have in your mind.

The one down side is that the car seat is only rated for a baby that weighs up to 22 lbs. However, we found that by the time Nick hit 22 lbs, we needed up upsize him to a bigger car seat anyhow, so this wasn’t really much of an inconvenience. In short, if you are looking for an infant car seat, I highly recommend this one.
