The best car seat for your newborn infant depends on which one best fits your type of car and your baby. There is no universal "best" car seat---the best one is the one that works for you. However, there are car seats that consistently receive high rankings from parents and high safety ratings from experts. When shopping for a car seat for your newborn, decide which type to buy (infant or convertible) and which safety features are most important to you.
