I am an early childhood teacher/parent educator and a research freak. I only buy Britax seats because the top safety ratings are of utmost importance to me, in combination with ease of use/installation. It's actually quite difficult to install a car seat 100% correctly - just ask a pro. If your seat moves more than 1 inch back and forth, it's incorrect and you need a pro to check it. I find this seat easy to use and cozy/comfortable for baby. Easy to wipe spills. Like the side-impact protection and metal bar inside. I always know what I am getting with Britax, as compared to cheaper brands. Take apart a cheaper brand and notice the thin styrofoam, yikes! Don't believe an ad, do your own research! My 11 month old (18 lbs) just graduated to this seat, from the infant seat, and is facing backwards in it, of course. I like the upgrades compared to the old Roundabouts, which I had with my previous babies. Love that I don't have to re-thread straps.
