9 Reclines & Headrest Positions
Nine recline positions fit a wider range of vehicles, and nine headrest adjustments accommodate growing children from birth through preschool.

RideRight Bubble Levels
Dual RideRight? bubble level-indicators verify seat angle in both rear-facing and forward-facing modes.

SuperCinch Latch Tightener
SuperCinch? LATCH tightener with force-multiplying technology helps achieve a tight and secure fit.

LockSure Belt Tightening System
LockSure? belt-tightening system helps achieve a secure installation with vehicle seat belt.

The NextFit? iX features a nine-position ReclineSure? leveling system and two RideRight? bubble level-indicators to help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. With more recline options than any other convertible, ReclineSure? is designed to accommodate a wider range of vehicles in both rear-facing and forward-facing modes. For installation with LATCH, premium connectors and a SuperCinch? force-multiplying tightener help achieve a secure fit with a fraction of the effort. For installation with the vehicle seatbelt, newly redesigned lock-offs with LockSure? technology make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place.

NextFit? iX is built to grow from newborn through preschool with easy-to-use adjustability to accommodate every stage, including smooth one-hand headrest adjustment with nine positions. As the headrest is raised, the harness shoulder strap position auto-adjusts in height and width to accommodate growing children without re-threading. The 5-point harness also features a one-pull, force-multiplying tightener and removable, machine-washable shoulder pads. For easier in/out, NextFit? iX is also equipped with a padded ComfortFlex? harness management system that holds both sides of the waist belt out of the way until the child is ready to be buckled. An integrated slide path makes it easy to re-position the LATCH strap when it?s time to switch from rear-facing to forward-facing.

Definitely Buying Again!

This is my first Albee purchase so I was hesitant since reviews were mixed on this website in general but I was completely shocked! I ordered it Wednesday evening and it came Saturday! They kept me updated with shipping and tracking too. It’s the most recent manufactured date (one worry I had) and it’s completely new in box. Price was cheaper than anywhere else I could find and I will be ordering another one soon. Absolutely nothing but amazing things to say!

All of our car seats have been chicco nextfit from Albee. They're great seats, comfortable for the kids and installation is quick. Shipping from Albee is always fast too and I haven't found a better price on these anywhere else (we've bought four).

Only the 6th one I've bought!
October 13, 2020
We have bought 6, yes 6, Chicco Nextfits between our three kiddos! We LOVE THEM! The padding is amazing and so comfortable. The kids have had no complaints. We love how easily it installs and the no thread harness. I've even flown several times with this car seat. It's kinda heavy to go through the airport by yourself with but thats because it is reinforced with steel! So super safe!

I have always shopped Britax, but after many of their seats broke when consumer reports tested them, I researched to see which seat was safest. This one seems to be the one and so far I’m very pleased. Very sturdy. Not too wide. Comfy for the baby.

This is our 4th Chicco Nextfit that we’ve purchased. The colors are neutral, and our kids are very comfortable. The easiest installation I’ve ever seen using the latch & anchors it installs like a breeze. We won’t buy any other convertible seat. Highly recommend this.

So easy to install and uninstall. Baby is very cozy and I love the reclining feature on this car seat. So far it hasn’t made her incredibly sweaty and hot and the color is just so cute. Overall very happy with my purchase and Albeebaby is my absolute favorite go-to for baby gear!
  • -cozy
  • -easy to install/uninstall
  • -multiple recline feature
  • -nicely padded straps
  • -doesn?t get horribly hot
  • -nice sleek but cute look
  • -baby and toddler approved!
Best Uses
  • Rear facing baby and front facing toddler
  • -cup holder is a little flimsy but personally don?t find it to be that big of a deal.

Excellent Quality Car Seat
April 13, 2019
I found the installation straightforward and relatively easy. My four year old grandchild finds the seat very comfortable. The safety harness adjusts quickly from one size grandchild to another smaller child. Substantial and well constructed. Very pleased with this seat and the quick service at Albee

Perfect for children
April 12, 2019
This car seat is very comfortable for the child. Super squishy material, crotch buckle pad is awesome. Has a little tab that prevents it from sliding up around buckle which I love! I like the design. Supercinch latch easy to use, like the storage compartments for it. I use it with the seat belt as my child is over the weight limit for LATCH. If I buy another I would definitely pay extra for the ZIP model for ease of belt installation and cleanup.
  • Supercinch, crotch buckle tab, comfy material, easy to carry (for the weight) level and recline indicators are easy to view, compact (for a car seat!)
Best Uses
  • Single vehicle
  • Installing with seat belt could be easier (compared to Britax clicktight), top tether strap is a bear to loosen

We already had one of these we'd purchased for my wife's vehicle from Albee Baby. Very happy with it. The belts adjust without disassembly, which is a major plus. Our daughter loves it, too. Great product.

Purchased for our 2.5 year old who is still rear facing. The passing in the seat is great she doesn’t complain about being uncomfortable. Installation with the latch system was so easy. Haven’t tried a seatbelt install but seems just as easy with the belt lock offs. The headrest is easy to adjust for height. Tightening the harness straps is also very easy. I love that I can keep her rear facing until 49inches in this seat.

Easy to use, and very well constructed
August 23, 2018
As with most Chicco products, the quality is there. This is the third Chicco we've bought and I would recommend them to anyone. This is the one that does not have the zip off cover but this seat is only used about once a week for our granddaughter. If it was a daily use, I would have bought the removable cover. It's easy to instal but is quite heavy so not a good seat if you want to remove it out of the car frequently. We have the infant to 30 pound model also but she's too tall for it now. Excellent product overall.
  • Easy install and comfortable for the child
Best Uses
  • Use stationary. Not great if you need to transfer frequently because of it's weight.
  • Because it's so well constructed, it's heavy.

We have used chicco for all 5 of our babies and are never disappointed. I don't have to worry about proper installation because the system is so easy, it's a proper, tight install every time.

Great car seat
April 10, 2018
I ordered this car seat for my son thinking this was an orange color when in fact its definitely more like a pink. I wasnt going to pay to ship it back and wait for a different car seat so I just called Chicco and ordered a different seat cover. Maybe we will have a little girl in a year or two so we can use this seat cover. I would definitely buy another Chicco car seat! I loved my sons Chicco keyfit30 he had as a baby. This seat is easy to install just like his infant car seat was!
  • Very easy to install
  • Looks more like an orange online but in person itâ
