Summary: The seat seems fine but it was manufactured in 2010. I'm very disappointed that we'll have to replace it in a year and a half. I didn't realize it until we already had it installed or I would have returned it. I'm surprised that Wal-Mart would even sell one that old.
Summary: My 2 month old daughter absolutely hates this car seat. She screams every time I put her in it. It doesn't have very much padding and doesn't look very comfortable for her. I don't like the "no-rethread" feature as it makes the straps very hard to achieve the proper fit with. The straps are also incredibly difficult to loosen. Without the base, it is almost impossible to get a proper install in my car, too. Will be purchasing something different soon.
Cons: Bulky, Difficult To Adjust, Hard to Install, Heavy, Uncomfortable
Summary: When I saw this baby carrier online I was very impressed with all of its features. It was all that I wanted and more. Upon opening it, I noticed it was extremely heavy and thought it was just because of the base. It was not. That carrier alone is very heavy for no reason. Why have to carry your baby in something so heavy and risk straining your muscles? The seat is narrow, so the extra weight cannot be attributed to the actual size or space of the carrier.
Summary: The car seat is very cute but it is hard to loosing the straps and we have had trouble getting it out of the base a few times(this is baby #2 so we know how to use a car seat it's like it just gets stuck). Everytime i put my daughter in it she screams and cries her head off, I wish i could afford to buy her another car seat but we can not. I made a mistake with the purchase of this one.
Pros: Sturdy, Stylish
Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Hard to Install, Heavy, Uncomfortable
Summary: i dont see nothing great about this car seat. Every time i put my newborn baby in the car seat she crys because it is to unconfortable and it looks like she is sitting down and leaning forward. yes the car seat is beautiful but its not what someone would be looking for. It is hard to buckle, hard to clean, unconfortable. Another thing my baby is 1 month old and she is 24 inches long considering the car seat only says its until the baby is 30 inches long.
Cons: Bulky, Difficult To Adjust, Difficult to Set Up, Hard to Install, Heavy, Poor Construction, Uncomfortable
Summary: when I first saw this I had to have it for my daughter. The only thing I liked about it was the color and the design. Everytime I put the carseat down my daughter leans forward in it so luckily she has to be strapped in.The straps are way to tight and I nurse my baby so they are really tight on the neck part! I brought it back to the store so they can help me adjust the straps and they told me to read my manual!
Pros: Comfortable, Stylish
Cons: Bulky, Difficult To Adjust, Difficult to Set Up, Hard to Install, Heavy, Poor Construction
Summary: I am not impressed with this product. My son is 3 months old and has outgrown the seat. He is 28 in and 18lns, but it claims to hold up to a 30 pounder, and I don't see that happening. Also, we purchased this seat because it would work with the Jogging Stroller, but when you put the seat in, the stroller is too top-heavy and you cant jog with it. I took the shell out to wash it and it said, not machine washable. Not very practical and a big waste of money.
Summary: I have a 2.5 month old who is still only 9lbs, and this car seat has not made me happy since we put in in it at the hospital. The base does not fit into cars correctly (I have tried 4 different cars, vans, SUV). It sits too far forward and her tiny head is pulled down-forward while it is snapped into the base. I called the company and all they offered to me was that I would need to bring the product to Oakland, CA to have them look at it.
Pros: Easy to Clean
Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Difficult to Set Up, Hard to Install, Heavy, Poor Construction, Uncomfortable
Summary: I would not recommend this car seat to anyone. My daughter is only 3 months old about to be 4 months and only weighs 15.7 pounds and she has already outgrown this carseat. Now Im searching for a new one. This car seat is a waste of money.
