Dream Carseat Lives up to Hype
April 25, 2012
I wanted a Britax for my first daughter 10 years ago, but could not afford one. With my newest addition, I went ahead and splurged! Am a very impressed with how sturdy this seat is! It doesn't move AT ALL! It is also deep, which is comforting knowing that if we are ever in an accident (touch wood), she would be well protected/cushioned against any blows. The only strange this are these velcro tabs on the seat belt. I suppose they are to keep the seat belt attached to the sides so you don't have to "dig" behind you child to find the straps. However, they are right where my daughter puts her arms and because it is velcro and she has baby skin, she gets a little scratched by them. While I appreciate the idea behind them being there, I think they are not placed good or could be made differently. I am not a car seat engineer, so I'm not sure what else they could use. I love the pattern so much. It is so unique. I always see Britax seats for girls that are pink. This just seems quirkier! Since we live in Texas, it's a good fit too! LOL!
I think buying quality is important when it comes to safety items like this. It is worth every penny. Albee baby also was a great site! Shipping was fast and efficient and I can't believe the deal we got on this! Definately a favorite site!
Pros:Feels VERY secure. Does not budge.
Deep sides for extra protection in case of accident.
Soft fabric. Cute pattern.
Belt buckle is very easy and secure.
Cons:Velcro on seat belt irritates baby's sensitive skin.
