Tapit Trice wins Blue Grass to qualify for Kentucky Derby

But the Maxi-Cosi Coral XP one-ups the competition with the ability to separate a third way for an even lighter wearable carrier.  Most infant car seats are made up of a base and the seat itself, which can detach easily for use as a carrier or click into a compatible stroller. Car seat companies are constantly innovating and finding new ways to add versatility to something as seemingly basic as a seat.

Pletcher, a Hall of Fame trainer, earned his fourth Blue Grass victory and first since Carpe Diem in 2015. Saez won for the second time in three years and third overall. Tapit Trice earned 100 points with the win and has 150 total to ensure a spot in the 149th Derby on May 6 at Churchill Downs.

Stewards quickly upheld the finish after review, giving the Todd Pletcher-trained colt his fourth consecutive victory after starting the 11-horse, Grade 1 race for 3-year-olds on the rail as the 8-5 favorite.

No one enjoys interrupting their baby's precious sleep, which is why travel systems that let you transfer a car seat to a stroller exist. The Doona infant car seat stroller takes that concept a step further by building a compact stroller into the car seat itself. 

Britax Marathon ClickTight

Britax's ClickTight series of convertible car seats features an innovative installation system. You simply pass the belt through the appropriate slots for rear- or forward-facing orientation, buckle the belt in, and lower the seat cushion until it clicks. The ClickTight feature is a special belt path that allows you to lift up the bottom of the seat like a Transformer and pass the vehicle seat belt underneath. Britax's Marathon, Boulevard and Advocate all use the ClickTight system.  The system makes it easy to install the car seat using the seat belt, requiring no awkward routing of the seat belt retractor or fumbling with excess webbing.

Fun fact: Safety 1st invented the "Baby On Board" sign in 1984. Since then, the brand has introduced a wide range of competitively priced baby products. One of those products is the Grow and Go All-in-One car seat.

With its fancy rotating mechanism, the Revolve 360 is heavy. But unless you need to move it from car to car, you only have to carry it one time. Indicators on either side of the base let you know when the seat is properly locked in position. Though the seat locks securely in place every time, I noticed a faint rattle when going over bumps and rough patches of road.  The seat portion also separates from the base to make transporting it a bit easier and to allow access to the harness belts for adjustment.

The LATCH belt cinches down with little effort, providing a tight fit to the seat cushions. The cup holders are also easy to keep clean, unscrewing with a quarter twist so you can wash out all the juice and milk residue that will inevitably build up.  The seat is relatively light and installs easily using clip-style LATCH hooks. The seat fabric is breathable and is quick to remove for easy cleaning. As its name implies, the Grow and Go All-in-One grows with your child, going from rear-facing to forward-facing to a belt-positioning booster seat.

It can sometimes be found at a significant discount. As a primary or second seat, the Safety 1st Grow and Go is a fine choice. The Safety 1st is a good buy at its full retail price of $180, but it's an even better one if you can find it for less.

Cass Herring further recommends that you look for a seat that fits your child. Things to consider when shopping for a car seat If you take one thing away from this best car seats article, let it be this: Choose a car seat that fits your specific needs and budget. "All car seats have height and weight limits, but beyond that, parents should consider the harness height and features on a seat such as how many crotch buckle positions the seat has or how the seat works to adjust the harness straps," she says.

Similar to Britax's ClickTight system, the Rava has a True Tension Door that makes installation with the vehicle seat belt much easier (though only in forward-facing position). The seat also has retractable side impact protection pods, designed to absorb more energy in a crash.  In addition to being easy on the eyes, the Rava features a number of handy features. Nuna Rava

The Nuna Rava is a chic convertible car seat available in a wide range of colors and patterns.

An all-in-one seat is a convertible seat with added functionality. Then you have convertible car seats, which can be used in rear- or forward-facing orientation and have weight ranges accommodating newborns all the way up to kindergartners. Most turn into a high-back booster car seat, but others can be stripped down further to a backless booster for maximum service life.
