An infant car seat sometimes seems to engulf an infant. Not the case with the sleekly designed Maxi-Cosi Mico, a European seat that migrated here after meeting rigorous U.S. safety standards. Its narrow profile makes this seat a breeze to get in and out of the car and tote around. An indicator in the base—green for go, red for no—tells you if the seat is locked properly into the base. Clear plastic inserts on the canopy’s top let you sneak peeks at your beautiful baby. 5 to 22 pounds, up to 29 inches.
