Infant Car Seats - Beginning the search

Last year Consumer reports incorrectly tested infant car seats. The impact they subjected the test vehicle to were much more rigorous than specified in the test. However, even with all of this, two car seats still passed.

This website still lists the two (Snugride & Flex-Loc):

With both of us having science backgrounds, this is a no-brainer, go with test verified quality. I see that many new models now contain EPS foam padding.

So most of my research here just included looking at what infant seats were compatible with which strollers. The best resource was this compatibility matrix:
