Best, affordable, softest on the market
May 14, 2016
Love this travel system! We'd planned on just getting the car seat by itself, but then with the amazing discounts we could get the whole travel system for cheaper than you can buy it in the store.
I did a TON of research deciding which car seat and stroller would be best for our new addition. We weren't on a particular budget, but I love a good deal and hate to waste money.
This one is affordable, has excellent reviews regarding safety. Our little one has not arrived yet, so I don't have first hand experience how he'll like his car seat, but I love it. I feel confident he'll be safe and secure if the unspeakable happens and safety features have to be tested.
We'd actually had our mind set on another brand- then we felt of the fabric the baby would be rubbing against and we were not impressed. Babies have such delicate tender skin; the last thing I wanted to do is irritate his skin by the car seat. So we went back to the drawing board and found this awesome system. Best of all- if you end up having a premie, which non of us can plan for, this car seat is the one recommended by the NICU from he hospitals. And of course, this one is the softest on the market- so we're set.
Pros:Easy to assemble, user friendly. When they say instillation is easy, they're not joking. My 7 yo and I assembled the stroller correctly the first time in less than 30 minutes! Car seat was completely assembled, there was nothing to put together!
I'm about 7 weeks away from our 3rd boy arriving, I installed the car seat base and carrier in our Honda Accord in 3 minutes- so easy and secure. LOVE the leveling bubbles on the base- makes instillation a piece of cake! The clips they have to secure the base are SO much easier to use than when my older boys were babies; we'd fight with them and it was a pain to switch around the base to other vehicles.
Also I love the color, I got the Atlantis variety, and all the buttons and handles that you'd need to press are orange, so it's a nice color combo and distinction about what to push and where.
Cons:The only thing I can think of that might be considered a con, is when clicking the car seat into place on the stroller, you have to pull these little flaps down that are connected inside the stroller seat. Then it clicks into place perfect- not a con just more of an inconvenience to have to remember.
Best Uses:If you have older children or even school age, the adjustable handle bar can accommodate their shorter height, or if you're tall like my husband and I, click the handle bar into the other direction on the highest setting and it accommodates our height.
Another great use is the front wheels easily detach to make storing easier and less bulky. You don't have to own a Tahoe or suburban to cart this stroller around; it easily fits in the trunk of our Honda Accord.
You can see below that my 6 yo son is struggling to carry the car seat- it's not light as a feather, but with all the safety features I'd want it to be a little heavier and secure for my precious baby.
Any mommy or daddy will have no problem carrying baby around in the carrier.
