Excerpt: I originally bought this car seat for the soft neoprene padding and comfort for my newborn. This has served its purpose. But now she's gotten bigger and we had to take out the infant padding, she's scrunched up in a bucket. It's really hard to get her out of it.
Excerpt: The thing I dislike about the seat is my son sweat a lot due to the material . he was comfortable but I always thought he wet himself but it was his back sweating. and you can't drop the temp or they'll get sick .
Pros: Easily Stowed, Easy To Assemble, Easy to Clean, Lightweight, Portable, Stable, Stylish
Excerpt: I bought this car seat because of the high reviews however I am extremely disappointed by the canopy! It provides almost NO coverage over my baby. By comparison, my sister has a britax car seat which has excellent protective coverage. Very disappointed.
Excerpt: My baby was born in early June, and after the first couple of car rides, she began crying loudly during each drive. My husband had to pull the car over because she was screaming so badly, and when I took her out of the carseat, her entire backside was drenched in sweat!!
Excerpt: I am disappointed in this car seat after all the rave reviews. I owned a Graco Snugride 35 for my first child 4 years ago. The Graco was way cheaper and better quality than the Chicco. The fabric is decent...it's what you expect. The padding is itchy looking.
Pros: Easy to install, Lightweight
Cons: Difficult To Adjust, Poor Construction, Uncomfortable
Excerpt: I think this is a safe car seat but the straps are a PAIN to adjust. Everytime I pull the strap to tighten everything, one side is ALWAYS too loose. I have to mess with it for quite a while to get everything pulled tight evenly. Not a god situation when the baby is crying and I'm in a hurry.
Summary: I am disappointed with this car seat. It came recommended by a friend, but I found it way too heavy to carry around, and with a newborn, they sleep a lot and you often need to carry it. Also, the safety clips are too tight on her legs, even when she was tiny.
Pros: Can be rocked, Easy To Install, Looks good, Solid
Cons: bulky, Heavy, Inconvenient to transport, NOT COMFORTABLE FOR BABY, Overpriced
