Description


Chicco (pronounced KEE-KO) is most known for their infant car seat the KeyFit, and the NextFit is a convertible seat for your baby to graduate to around one year when they outgrow their infant seat. (You can also start with the convertible car seats and skip the infant one altogether. Make an informed choice.)

Since your child has to stay in a convertible car seat until they are four years old, the NextFit ranges from 5-40 lbs in the rear-facing position and from 22-65 lbs in the forward-facing position and up to 49” tall. The NextFit exceeds all the safety specifications from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and has a steel-reinforced frame.

To make installation easier, it features a “Super Cinch” strap on the LATCH anchors. It’s more like a pulley system than a tug-as-hard-as-you-can system. Around two years old (once your child is more than 35 lbs for rear-facing or 40 lbs forward-facing), you will need to re-install the car seat using your car’s seat belts. This process isn’t as straightforward as the LATCH because the belt goes under the seat cover where you can’t see exactly what you’re doing. Most convertibles have issues around this, too, so if you’re into Chicco that shouldn’t be a dealbreaker.

A couple major drawbacks: the NextFit is known for being a drag to clean because the cover is really hard to take off. (That’s why Chicco introduced the NextFit Zip with a zip-off cover.) Also, at 19” this seat is on the wider side, so if you have a narrow back seat or need to fit three kids, you’ll want to consider narrower options from Clek or Diono.

This carseat is very comfortable and padded, as well as super sturdy and secure. We travel a lot, and our 8-month-old stays pretty happy and comfy in this carseat, whether she is playing or sleeping. The design makes it easy for her to sit up and play or eat, and the sides around her head are perfect for keeping her head from bouncing all over the place when she naps. She also is able to stretch out, unlike some other infant car seats. I really like the adjustable tilt, which makes it perfect for any car. We are also excited to be able to use this carseat for a long time before she outgrows it! The whole padding is able to come off to be washed, and the installation is SO easy.
