Chicco (pronounced key-co) is an Italian company that manufactures a variety of baby products. One of their best selling items is the Cortina Travel System. Travel systems, or car seat/stroller combos, have become quite popular in recent years. Travel systems include a car seat base that stays in your car, a removable car seat that doubles as a baby carrier, and a stroller. The car seat can be quickly removed from the car and attached to the stroller without ever having to disturb your baby - which is a prized commodity for many parents.
The Chicco Cortina Travel System combines the KeyFit rear-facing infant car seat with the Cortina stroller. Chicco claims that KeyFit is the world's easiest car seat to install. Indeed, the car seat base is very easy to secure using the anchoring system that accompanies most vehicles made after 2003 (and a few models made in 2000-2002). The KeyFit base is also compatible with lap belt and/or shoulder belt harnesses. The car seat itself simply snaps into the base in a single motion. We've heard about a Chicco demonstration video where a man simply tosses the car seat onto its base and it snaps into place. The seat includes a single-pull adjustment to tighten the base and bubble level guides to ensure a secure, level fit.
So, when picking a car seat, it is important to look for both safety and a user-friendly design. To help you made that decision, BabyEarth is spotlighting the Chicco Cortina Travel System.
The Cortina Travel System by Chicco is made up of the Chicco Cortina Stroller and the Chicco KeyFit 22 Infant car seat.
