Having a car seat is proven to be the best way to keep babies safe. While all car seats sold in the US have passed safety requirements, not all designs are created equal. Most are utilitarian in appearance, covered in varying shades of gray, but some parents are looking for more than the basic car seat.

Mommies of baby girls, in particular, can attest that there aren’t that many options when it comes to car seats for their little darlings. Their search may be over as we have found 4 rear-facing and convertible car seats with enough splash of colors for a stylish baby girl. Take a look below at our list of the best infant car seats for baby girls.
