Best seat, worth every penny!
March 26, 2015
I decided to get a seat for my baby that could be used from birth until booster seat. While the seat is spendy, it is worth it because this seat has safety ratings that exceed many other seats out there and you simply can't put a price on the safety of a child. Though the seat has yet to be used, I have it installed in my SUV in between two other seats just to see that it fits, and of course to have it ready when baby is born. I was very pleased at the ease of installation even though I was warned that getting the correct angle can be a bit difficult. We are not required with a LATCH restraint system, so I just used the middle seat's shoulder/lap belt and only had to redo it once. Very happy so far!!
Pros:Goes from birth to booster (120 lbs). Rear facing installation is fairly simple, and an angle adjuster is fairly cheap if needed.
Cons:Even though weight goes up to 120lbs, a child may outgrow the seat due to their height before they are ready to be out of a booster, so I may still need to purchase a booster, but not for a few years, so it's not too big of a deal.
Best Uses:Narrow fit really does allow you to fit 3 seats across, even of different brands, in a mid size SUV. This is a huge help with only one child not in a seat/booster.
