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: Yes, this is a safe car seat and rated highly by all the appropriate safety administrators BUT this car seat DOES NOT BREATHE well! My 5 month old is always soaking wet with sweat when I get him out of this seat. We just finished winter and he was sweating in it even though it was cold out.
Excerpt: The carseat has been wonderful, no complaints there. But, the thing is, you can get a good, comparable carseat from a dozen other companies. The stroller is lacking. The wheels are small and wobbly. They definitely don't go over rough terrain well, such as grass.
Excerpt: I got the car seat last week and was going to order the matching stroller this week, both items were on my registry. I went to place my order online for the stroller and it wouldn't let me finish the order it just took me back to my cart.
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
