Easy to install and good quality, but very heavy
August 14, 2013
This is a very attractive, expensive looking car seat and the base is easy to install, but it is extremely heavy - especially with baby inside. Carrying it is rather awkward, but I suppose that's true of most car seats. It seems comfortable for baby because he goes right to sleep when we start driving and will often stay asleep when he is in the car seat. Also, you can use it as a rocker and the motion is smooth and soothing.
Pros:Attractive, easy to install, seems durable and safe
Cons:Very heavy; canopy is somewhat difficult to open and close (must be detached and reattached to be opened or closed, as is recommended during use in the car).
