    Question WEIGHT of Chicco KeyFit30

    Hi!

    I'm getting ready to order our next infant carseat.... I've been looking at the KeyFit30 as well as the various Graco Snugrides online (no good local shopping options, so I can't go play with things). We used the original Graco Snugride (is that now the Snugride 22?) with our other 3 kids & it was great and lasted until about 5-6 months (all 3 kids grew too tall for it... didn't hit 20lbs until 1 year). However, a friend has a newer Snugride (she's not sure if it is the 32 or 35) & I picked it up empty the other day and WOW is it HEAVY!!! I can't imagine using the caseat carrier feature very long at all, once you add a baby. That wasn't a problem with our original Snugride. I tried looking up the weights of the various seats and found this list referred to here http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?k...TckN1YlE&hl=en which is helpful, but is missing the seat weight of the KeyFit and the Snugride 22... the key info I need!

    Does ANYONE have that info? what the carrier seat weighs alone? I just don't wanna buy a seat that supposedly will last forever and then end up not carrying it anywhere due to back pain!

    THANKS in advance!!!!

    The snugride 22 is 7.5 lbs. I own a keyfit, but don't know how much it weighs. Feels pretty close to the same to me.

    Just wanted to chime in that the Keyfit weighs slightly more than the SR22 IIRC, but the way the handle is designed, it feels like less.

    The keyfit30 has a weight of 9 lbs. I will get both the snugride 22 and the keyfit 30 weight added to the spreadsheets.
