Lightest infant carseat?

Anyone know or have a guess which infant carseat is the lightest? I am trying to figure out which one to get and now that they all hold babies from 30-40 pounds they all seem so heavy. This is my third and I do baby wear a lot but sometimes when they are asleep I don't like to take them out and wake them so I like the option of being able to carry them in the seat or put the seat in the stroller.

I think the snugride30 is only like 7lb, maybe 7.5...it was the lightest I saw at BRU when I was looking.

The safety 1st comfy carry is the lightest. Target used to carry it, but I'm not sure if they have them in-store anymore.

The Maxi Cosi Mico is lightweight at 8#s and is a really nice seat.

The Cybex Aton weighs 8 lbs and is a really nice seat that is very easy to install.

I second the maxi cosi vote...they are one of the lightest. Britax has one also but I can't remember which model,but if you go to there site and look at specs you'll find it...it's 7 or 8 lbs.
