Hm, I just googled because I didn't know of any that didn't need to be rethread, but this seat popped up on the search engine.

I didn't know they made infant seats that's had no retreading until we saw the Prezi.. That is one feature I love about my sons Safety 1st Air Protect.
But we want an infant seat that can easily detach

You could take a look at this list on pinterest and see which one you may like better.

You have to re-thread, but the Chicco Keyfit 30 is an amazing seat. It's the safest seat on the market (or at least it was when we bought ours), is easy to install, is lightweight, and has big weight/height limits. You can use it until 30 lbs or 30 inches, whichever your child reaches first. DS has been 75%+ for height since birth, and is still in this seat at 10 months.

We checked out the Chicco Keyfit, nothing stuck out to be great about it compared to say the Snugride and I didn't care for the hood or age.
But you say it was light weight? Did your son get really sweaty in it? That's the biggest complaint I read about it.. Living in Florida I definitely do not want a hot/stuffy seat.

I liked the Maxi Cosi Mico but it only goes up to 22 pounds as well.. My first son was always in the 90th percentile for height and 11 pounds by his due date so Id rather get a seat that goes to at least 30 pounds..
Thank you for your suggestion though!!

I've never noticed him being sweaty, unless it was hot outside and we had blankets covering him to block out sun (he was a NB during the summer). Other than that, no problems. The thing that really stuck out to us about the seat was the excellent safety rating. After seeing that, we didn't look any further.

We did the same with my first, typically had a blanket over the sunshade to block it out, but that was in Chicago, now were in Florida and its always summer lol
I am trying to find the most up to date infant seat ratings list, but it seems like some sites are biased.. One website will say Snugride, Safety 1st and Britax are the best, then another will say they are the worst. And another site rated two brands I've never even heard of best, which are the cheap cheap ones from BRU. :sigh:

Yeah we used Consumer Reports' website, and it had Chicco as number 1. I don't remember what number 2 or 3 was at the time. Granted, this was over a year ago.

The first comparison is from Consumer Reports.. But I'm confused why they would put the Maxi Cosi Pebble on there when it isn't even available in the US. But to look at each rating individually you need to pay for a subscription.
Oh I know, these seats change so much.. I haven't had to look at car seats in almost three years!
