A baby travel system includes a stroller, an infant car seat and a car seat base. The infant car seat has a handle that allows it to be used as an infant carrier. The car seat base can be seat-belted into a vehicle, then the car seat / carrier snaps onto the base for travel, making it easier for the parent to move baby from car to destination all while strapped into the same carrier. The travel system is particularly handy for sleeping infants, since it eliminates the need to actually remove the sleeping baby from the car seat. The car seat / carrier also snaps onto the travel system stroller frame for added convenience.
