When my daughter was born, my husband and I (and our dog) were living in a fourth-floor walk-up. I was worried that the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio car seat ($320) might be too heavy for me to get upstairs, but I was wrong. It's so easy to carry, so easy to attach to a stroller, so safe, and so great-looking. The Italians do it right!
