Excerpt: We bought this carseat after all the great reviews it got online. My babe (16lbs) doesn't like her travel system carseat anymore so we opted for a 3-in-1 so that we wouldn't have to buy another carseat for her after this one. She sat in it while it was still in the house and loved it! So it would seem that it is super comfy.
Excerpt: the straps are Very difficult to tighten, have to pull with both hand and throw all my weight into it. My husband complains about it too, so it's not a strength issue. After a few stops, I'm exhausted from getting mt daughter in and out. I've sent one back already (owned for 6ish months) and had it replaced. But over time the new one is doing the same thing. I think the tether strap frays behind the release clip on the harness?.
Excerpt: Good car seat but the buckle is hard to open, you have to press really hard the red button to unbuckle it and even the the plastic one. I cracked my nail once because of this. The recline doesn't really help alot, my baby (11M old) still looks like sitting straight. When she's sleeping her head is bouncing whenever the car stop. Would be nice if they added it one more level for reclining so the baby can sleep comfortably.
Excerpt: I bought a total of 8 Alpha Omega seats (4 regular & 4 Elite) to equip 4 cars for our 2 kids (our 2 cars and the grandparents cars). The Elite model I got was a bit more expensive than the other model and had the added features of the armrests which the kids preferred and the ability to adjust the seat back height without unclipping the seat from the car.
Excerpt: The features offered in this car seat are definitely worth the price point. We kept it rear-facing for safety reasons but found it very hard to fit in the back seat of our small 5-seat vehicle. It is very tall, and in order to be at the angle required for rear-facing, it needed to be in the centre of the back seat so that it could squeeze slightly between the two front seats.
Excerpt: I love this car seat it matches the interior of my vehicle. I have it in the rear facing position in my suv with no problem plus two other kids in the back they complained about the last seat because they couldn't Get there belt on but not with this one. My son use to hate it in his other seat but this seat is way more comfortable for him. He sleeps more and less fussing in it, so overall it was a great buy.
Excerpt: I bought this car seat for my 16 month old daughter, because she had finally outgrown her bucket seat. I like that the seat has many safety features and is very comfortable. It is a sturdy seat and I feel safe having her in it. It was easy to install and it looks like she will be able to use it for a long time. The price was right and I really do think that this was a good purchase!
