Don’t you love it when baby gear brands take a product and make it a million times better with new technology that makes a parent’s life easier? We sure do! If you’ve ever had to bend, squat, or contort your body in order to get your kids in and out of their car seat and thought "there has to be an easier way," there finally is. Rotating car seats are our new obsession.
Instead of attempting to get a wiggly baby out of a car without breaking your back or hitting your head (or theirs!) on the car, you just press a button and the seat spins towards you. Genius!
Whether your child is rear-facing, forward-facing, or ready for a booster seat, these are our favorite rotating car seats.
Turn and Go 360 Rotating All-in-One Convertible Car Seat
This seat rotates a full 360 degrees, so getting your kids in and out of any car will be a breeze. It’s great for all models, from a car or a van to an SUV. Just swing the car seat in any direction to feed, nurse, or get your baby in our out of the vehicle. This car seat has Safety 1st’s tension sensors that have a red-to-green indicator on the seat’s base. It allows you to see when your belt has tension — just look for the green. Plus, it grows with your child, so you don’t need to buy multiple car seats or booster seats.
Evenflo Revolve Extend Revere Convertible Car Seat
Not only can you rotate this seat with just one hand, but you can also keep your little one rear facing until they are 50 pounds. This car seat even adjusts to a booster seat and comes in a variety of colors.
Baby Jogger City Turn Rotating Convertible Car Seat
This car seat rotates 180 degrees and puts your child ten inches closer to you, making getting in and out of your vehicle a whole lot easier on you and your back. It takes just a few seconds to install, so if you need to move this car seat to another car, it’ll be quick and easy. The seat allows babies from 4 to 50 pounds to be rear facing, and 22 to 65 pounds forward facing.
Maxi-Cosi Emme 360 All-in-One Convertible Car Seat
This car seat from Maxi-Cosi can spin a full 350 degrees and has easy handles to make moving it to any position very easy. Fans of this car seat love the fabric because it’s easy to clean, and the cupholders because they come out for quick cleanups.
This car seat comes with a lot of impressive features like the stabilizing leg that attaches to the base to keep the car seat in the correct position. Another parent favorite: the buckle sensor that sends updates to your phone about your child's safety while they’re in the seat. You’ll know about temperature changes (if it’s too hot or too cold) and you’ll get alerts if your baby is left in the car seat. One downside is that this car seat doesn’t convert to a booster.
While this car seat is the most expensive on the list, it does have some impressive features. From ventilation panels to keep your child cool to organic cotton inserts and harness covers, this car seat has a lot to offer. But keep in mind that it can only fit a child up to 40 pounds.
