Rated 5 out of 5 by kimberleyC A godsend This car seat is amazing! The fact that it swivels truly makes me life SO MUCH EASIER. When not in use, I leave the car seat attached to the base, but swiveled out towards the door so that it is extremely easy to put my daughter in before swiveling it into its place. I have never had another infant car seat and honestly can't imagine trying to get a squirming infant into the seat when it's facing the seat. My one gripe is that it says that it fits infants from 4 lbs up. We brought our daughter home at 4 lb 5 oz and had the settings on the smallest/ tightest settings and I do not believe that they adequately held her in place. She was able to take her arms out from behind the straps and move them in towards her body with her hands up by her face. My situation is an extreme and I know the majority of people will not be using this for 4 lb babies. Following our departure from the hospital, I purchased the infant body support (also through giggle), which sort of bulked her up. This was a huge help. She is now 6 lbs and I feel that with the infant body support, we were able to hold her into the car seat firmly once she was about 4 lb 12 oz and up. The Orbit is one of perhaps 5 infant car seats that says it even fits infants as small as 4 lbs, so I wouldn't say this is a detriment (once you get the body support), but I would like others to be aware in case they bring home preemies (buy the body support too!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMommy Genius I don't know why no other company has figured out the rotating base. It is such a help when getting in and out of the car, on the stroller at a restaurant or just about any other place you can imagine! The infant seat is fairly big and is a little tight in the backseat of my Jetta. It probably wouldn't fit in a smaller car. Overall, I love this travel system. I have the toddler seat, but my little guy is still little :) March 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cherise Great product!! We love the orbit system. Our baby is 18 lbs now and this system has made lifting him in and out of the car a lot easier!! Pricey but well worth it. March 20, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tiffany Beautiful seat! I love the way this carseat looks. I love how easy it is to carry (although it is a bit heavy). I love that it's easy to twist it around to put your baby in or take your baby out. My only dislike is that my baby seemed to slouch in it until he was almost 3 months old, even with an added insert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amandacbennett AMAZING - CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT This was my one MUST HAVE item after doing tons of research on the internet... the price tag is steep but the convenience and functionality that come along with the orbit g2 far surpass any other stroller system I have seen. I would HIGHLY recommend and my husband would agree. You won't regret it :) March 10, 2011

A:When you're shopping giggle's Best-of Edited assortment (car seats included!) you're shopping the very best products available on the market in every category -- our promise to our customers is that we've done the homework so you don't have to!
And, since we've presented you with the very best car seats available, the decision is more about which car seat is best for you! A couple of non-negotiables to keep in-mind:
1. Regardless of whether a new parent owns a vehicle, a hospital’s staff will not discharge a newborn unless the baby is harnessed in a car seat.
2. The safest car seat for a child at any age is one that is properly installed, used correctly, and consistently.
3. Experts unanimously agree that a car seat is the single baby product that families should by new, rather than borrowing a gently worn car seat from a friend.
Next, consider what kind of car seat are you looking for. There are 4 key car seat categories that correspond with a child’s ages and stages of growth, and giggle offers solutions in each category:
1. Infant Car Seat. (Can only be used rear-facing. May be a best fit for a smaller newborn. Highly portable for parent's convenience.)
2. Convertible Car Seat. (Rear-facing at a reclined angle for children 1-2 years, then converts to an upright forward-facing seat.)
3. Toddler Car Seat. (Rear facing for children weighing at least 15 lbs, and forward facing for children weighing up to 65 to 80lbs.)
4. Booster Seat. (For children who have outgrown their forward-facing child car seat, but don't yet fit the adult seat belt.)
Once you've narrowed down the category that's right for you and your family, some key considerations when making a car seat choice include:
a. Safety. (Testing, ratings and reviews are imperative to provide the most optimal protection for the child.)
b. Size. (Not all car seats fit all cars. Make sure it fits before you buy! Save your box & receipt just in case.)
c. Usable life. (Multi-stage seats have a higher weight capacity and offer an economical longevity.)
d. Portability. (Infant car seats let you move a sleeping baby in and out of the car, and may adapt to a stroller travel system)
Making a decision that's best for your lifestyle will not only net you a Best car seat, but you'll find the Best car seat for you!
