Description: The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 Car Seat accommodates babies up to 30 pounds and 30 inches, while providing Side Impact Protection. This car seat features an exceptionally soft microfiber fabric, along with a "Confort-Dry" pad that keeps Baby safe and dry. The extra wide safety-padded wings give even more protection to your baby's head. The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 Car Seat can be used with or without its base and locks easily into all Peg Perego strollers. The 5-point harness can be adjusted with only one hand and its sun canopy and handle are both adjustable. Made in Italy.
Why we like it: The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 Car Seat has passed multiple stringent safety tests both in the U.S. and in Europe. It features Side Impact Protection (SIP). The SIP padded wings not only provide additional security for your baby, but also offer a comfortable side headrest. This car seat is fully adjustable to grow with your baby. In fact, it can accommodate babies all the way from 5-30 pounds! It has a removable plush cushion designed for the comfort and security of newborns. The microfiber fabric that comes with each model of this car seat is both breathable and ultra-soft, keeping Baby comfortable in all kinds of weather. The belt height can be easily adjusted with only one hand… and as a parent, it seems you can never have enough hands! Since the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 Car Seat can be used safely with or without its base, it is a good choice for city goers who may often take their baby in taxis. It is recommended to use the base however, as it makes seat installation easier and more secure. The base installs into the car using either the LATCH system or seat belts.
Things we wish were different: One main complaint among parents who bought this car seat is its weight. Many argue that it is too heavy, although weighing in at 11 pounds, sans-baby, we feel that this is not an unreasonable amount of weight for all the extra protection this car seat provides. Also, some parents feel that this seat is too upright to be comfortable for very young infants. However, other parents say it's so comfortable that their babies fall asleep every time they ride in their Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 Car Seat. Peg Perego maintains that this seat is fully adjustable for all size babies and even "cocoons" your child as he or she grows. Our take is that every child is different and what may work for one baby may not work for another.
