A car seat ranks pretty low on the fun-to-buy-for-baby meter, but it can't be any more important. Motor vehicle injuries are the top cause of death among children in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But using a child safety seat can reduce that risk by a whopping 71 percent. Here's how to buy the best one for your precious cargo.

Have you purchased a car seat for baby yet?  If so, which one did you select?  If not, which ones do you have your eye on?

We haven't yet, but will as soon as we get our income tax money! At first I saw all the cute patterns and wanted a cutesy one like we had with our first son......but now I am set on a specific one that is more functional than cutesy. We'll be getting the Baby Trend Jogger Travel System, Millennium. They sell it the cheapest at walmart.com for only $179, everywhere else it's over $200!

I recently purchased a Cosco travel system. Thought it'd be a better value for me right now to get the carseat/stroller combination. In a few months I will buy a Cosco convertible car seat. Not to mention they have both in zebra print, which I absolutely love!
