Excerpt: I used this car seat with a regular safety 1st stroller and the base it came with. My son was 6 weeks old when I got rear ended on the highway. The person who hit me was going 40-45mph. This car seat, installed correctly, held my son in place and there was no damage done to him. I like this car seat but there are a few cons to it that I think if they were changed, I would consider it a 5 star product. the infant harness, or the head support, is really "cheap".
Pros: Easy to install, Safe, Sturdy
Cons: Bulky, Heavy, Infant Harness, Poorly Designed Harness
Summary: I like the price and design. I bought it for my newborn daughter. The only thing that would make it better would be a better head rest. My daughters head always falls to side cause the head rest isn't very supportive.
Summary: I bought this for a friend who is expecting. I researched car seats (because I'm very paranoid about correct car seat usage) and found this one which has a great price and great limits. I checked out car seats for the littles on facebook and they recommend this seat a lot. It has good height limits, great weight limits, and fits premies well. Some seats say they fit premies, but since the straps MUST be below the shoulders they don't actually fit them well.
Summary: This carseat is huge, but functional. I needed another car seat and after reading child carseat safety info this car seat met most requirements. It handles the max weight and height limits for rear facing. It is heavy to carry with baby in it. I like how durable it is and I am comfortable knowing my child is safe in it. I researched a lot of car seats when looking for a new one and some of the pricey ones didn't accommodate max weight and height limits.
Summary: I wanted a carrier for my 21lb 8 month old that would still fit in a stroller. I could of gotten a larger one, but then I would've had to wake him up every time I took him out. I got a larger infant carrier just to buy some time until hes about a year old. it's definitely bigger than the other one that only went up to 24 pounds. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied. My only complaint is that the canopy is really too short.
Summary: The Car seat is for my new little one. Its very cut and looks better in person than online. I an very happy with my purchase, though I have not used the seat yet I hope the baby likes it. I do feel the seat could have more cushion, but as long as she is safe then Im happy.I do like that the seat is lightweight and can be used up to 35 lbs, I felt this was the most bang for the buck instead of buying the travel systems, which only go up to 20 or so lbs.
