The Ultimate Car Seat and Stroller Compatibility Guide

Finding the perfect match between a stroller and a car seat to suit your lifestyle can be tricky. It’s probably one of the most time-consuming tasks that new parents have to go through. And it’s an important one, as you’ll probably be using your stroller and your car seat regularly in the first year of your baby’s life.

Things get even more complicated if you’re looking for something that can help with a very specific need. A double stroller for your twins? A good jogging stroller with a lightweight infant car seat? Or how about a stroller that can easily take you from the bassinet to an infant car seat and then a full-size baby car seat?

With so many options and brands available on the market, you’ll have a hard time just knowing where to start.

stroller car seat combination guide adapters - Baby Gear Essentials
Finding the perfect stroller and car seat match to suit your lifestyle can take time.

To simplify things, you have two options available to you:

  1. You can pick a stroller and car seat combo from the same manufacturer. That way, you’re sure that the seat and the stroller are compatible out of the box.

    This is often the best option if you want something easy with a perfect fit. Most brands also offer attractive bundles if you purchase the seat and the stroller together. We recommend the Chicco Bravo Trio, it’s a great travel system (available here).

  2. You can also pick a stroller or a car seat based on your preference first, and then find the other half that will work with your choice. This gives you more flexibility but might require an adapter to make them fit together. That’s when things become… interesting.

    Also sometimes called “extenders”, these adapters can help you build the travel system that’s perfect for you. With many different options available from many different brands, there are a lot of different combinations that are possible. You’ll just need to make sure that there is an adapter available to attach your car seat to your stroller.

This stroller and car seat combination guide aims at simplifying your search for the perfect fit.

We’ve researched, tested and reviewed every single stroller adapters for the infant car seats that are currently available on the market. That’s a total of 344 different combinations possible!

1. Baby Trend Secure Snap Tech 35, Inertia and Flex Lock

Baby Trend is an up and coming infant car seat brand. Their most popular models are the Secure Snap Tech 35, the Ally and the Flex Loc. Because the brand is still relatively new, it’s, unfortunately, one of the least compatible brands on the market today.

2. Britax B-Safe Gen2

Britax is one of the best selling car seat brands thanks to their reputation for safety. The Britax B-Safe is one of our favorite car seat models of the year.

Best stroller for the Britax B-Safe car seat: the Britax B-Lively and B-Safe Gen2 Travel System. It’s light, easy to maneuver, and quick to fold.

Note: old versions of this system were recalled by Britax to replace the car seat adapter. This issue has now been resolved and new models are not affected. You should contact Britax if you own an old model, however.

If you need a double stroller compatible with the Britax B-Safe 35, we recommend the Baby Jogger City Select with the Britax car seat adapter and the extenders for the second seat. It’s the perfect solution to accommodate two children at the same time, including Britax B-Safe 35 car seat on top and the reclinable baby seat below.

5. Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35

Graco is the brand that invented the baby travel system with their Click Connect technology. They’ve fallen a bit behind lately, and their car seat isn’t our favorite anymore (read our review of the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35), but they continue to offer great value for money with their stroller bundles.

Best stroller for the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 infant car seat: the Graco FastAction Fold Jogger Stroller. It’s a good contender for the top spot on the jogging stroller list and works great in every situation.

Here are all the other stroller combinations possible with the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 car seat:

6. Maxi-Cosi Mico 30

Maxi-Cosi does some great work with their baby car seats, you can read our review of the Mico Max 30 here for example. Naturally, strollers from the same brand are the best fit and are the most cost-effective thanks to great bundle prices online.

Maxi-Cosi Celia stroller car seat combination - Baby Gear Essentials

Best stroller for the Maxi-Cosi infant car seat: the Maxi-Cosi Zelia 5-in-1 Modular Travel System. The Zelia has five different configurations to accompany you and your baby from day one. It’s very well-built and comes with large storage space.

7. Peg Perego Primo Viaggio

With Peg Perego, you’re looking at the high-end of baby gears. The Italian brand is well-known to produce luxury car seats and equipment. They are expensive, but you get premium materials and fabrics and stylish design with a longlasting quality. Our review of the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio shows that the car seat is no exception. It would rank number one on our list if it wasn’t for its premium price.

If you have the budget, go for it. You won’t be disappointed.

Best stroller for the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seat: the Peg Perego Booklet 50 Travel System. The Book Pop-Up stroller is absolutely beautiful and maintains great resale value years later, so you can easily sell it on eBay if you want.

Here are all the other stroller combinations possible with the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio car seats:

8. UPPAbaby MESA

We love UPPAbaby here at Baby Gear Essentials. They are the first brand to build infant car seats without nasty chemicals (check our review of the UPPAbaby MESA to learn more). They are a bit more expensive than Chicco, which probably explains why they aren’t as popular in the US yet, but you can’t go wrong with their travel system bundle.

Best stroller for the UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat: the UPPAbaby Cruz V2, which comes in different colors and styles (read our full review of the UPPAbaby Cruz V2 here).

Car seat and stroller compatibility frequently asked questions

  • Question: Can any car seat fit in any stroller?
    Answer: No. Only car seats and strollers from the same manufacturers will usually work together as is but you’ll need to use an adapter to fit a seat and a stroller for different brands. Not every match is possible, unfortunately, so make sure to check what’s available before buying.
  • Question: What is the best stroller car seat combo?
    Answer: The overall best travel system is the Chicco Bravo Trio Travel System. It’s a great value for money. You can check our review above. But if your budget allows, the UPPAbaby Cruz V2 stroller with the Mesa Infant Car Seat is even better (but also more expensive).
  • Question: Do strollers come with car seats?
    Answer: Not always, it depends if you buy a bundle or not. If you need both a stroller and a car seat, we recommend buying them together in a bundle as you’ll save money.
  • Question: Can you put an infant in a stroller?
    Answer: Yes, if you have a car seat that can fit with your stroller. Do not attempt to place the infant car seat on your stroller without the appropriate adapter as that wouldn’t be safe. You should also check the minimum weight and size requirement for your child to use the default stroller seat that came with it.

Car seat and stroller manufacturers included in our list in 2021
