To some people, this topic is probably a bit insane. But to others, it isn’t, because they see celebrities online or in the magazines carrying their baby in a car seat carrier. So, for the fun of it, I’ve found the most popular choices, and you would be surprised at how normal their choices are!
Here we go: Which car seats do celebrities use?
This is the one I found to be the most widely used infant car seat by celebrities. And it can be found at your normal online retailers! Yay!
Details: Comes in a variety of five different colors.
It has air protect side impact protection plus moisture-wicking premium fabrics. It comes with an insert that provides head and neck support for those smaller babies, and also a seat pad that can be removed without needing to un-thread the harness. Machine washable and dryer safe seat pad. The seat itself without the base only weighs a little over 8 pounds. Not bad to carry around.
They make a fairly cheap adapter for their car seat bases that will allow this seat to be compatible with 13 different stroller brands!
Of the one hundred reviews that I read, moms love how cozy and snug their babies are in this seat. They also love the machine washable pads, and that the material is moisture-wicking. The seat seems to be more lightweight compared to other brands.
The cons that I read were few. Some people have a hard time with the harness straps, they feel that they twist easily. Others say the car seat base seems to take up more room in the back seat than other brands.
Sometimes, these car seat names get to be a bit much, don’t you think? It’d be hard for me to remember this name when asking for help in a store!
This is a very popular option for celebrities when moving out of the infant seat stage, and into the convertible seat stage. Honestly, it’s reviews don’t make it out to be near a good of seat as others that I have reviewed. It averages 3.7 out of 5 stars on multiple sites. But then, it also makes Amazon’s top choice list, so it’s all about preference on what kind of features you are looking for. This seat is reasonably priced, Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air+ Convertible Car Seat, Newbury between $132-$150.
Details: This seat offers an extended weight range compared to others. From 5-40 pounds rear facing, and up to 65 pounds front facing. It has a 10 position headrest to grow along with your baby, and also a 4 position recline system.
Pros that moms like about this seat are that their children seem very comfortable, and for those that have been involved in an accident or a roll-over, their babies did not receive a scratch on them! The safety points on this seat are incredible, and seem to be the main factor over small inconveniences when purchasing.
Middle ground on this seat is that it is bigger than other convertible car seats. It seems to be a much more suitable fit for those with SUV’s and vans over compact cars. I’ve seen some pictures of kids in this seat, and it does look bigger, like it really hugs around your child, even when they are 3 years old, which is probably really comfy for them.
Cons: It seems quite a few people struggle with the installation of this seat. I’m not sure if the instruction manual isn’t very well written, or if it’s the straps that they are having a problem with. I would recommend finding a YouTube video on installation. (Bless those parents who make those videos, it’s saved my behind!)
There are celebrities who have $2000 infant car seat carriers that I can’t even find for sale in the US, let alone any reviews. Are they practical, are they safe, are they comfy? I have no idea, but I do know that these two seats are popular, and can be researched and purchased on a budget by any family.
