Great carseat for a decent price
July 31, 2013
I puchased this carseat for my husband's car for our daughter, but I didn't want to spend as much money on a second carseat as I spent on her first (everyday) carseat. The price was right. This carseat is totally cute, I love the pattern! Also, my daughter falls asleep in it all the time, so it is certainly comfortable enough. We are still using it in the rear facing position, because she is under age 2 and within the weight limits. It is easy to install using the LATCH system, however I had to put a rolled towel under the foot part of the carseat to get the correct amount of tilt for the rear-facing position which isn't a problem. The only thing I don't care for is it is difficult to get the LATCH strap tightened all the way because when you pull up your hand hits the carseat, but i've still seemed to get it tight enough that it doesn't move much. The 5 point harness system is easy to buckle, a little difficult to unbuckle the chest clip, but i'm find that it's gettting easier as time goes on, and easy to adjust the height settings. The carseat doesn't come with strap covers to go over the shoulders, so I noticed the strap was rubbing on my daughters neck a little. So I purchased my own strap covers with some padding in them, they pad the strap and also give some padding for her head if she falls asleep. The sides of the carseat by her head are a little far from her head that when she falls asleep she can't rest her head on them well, so the padded strap covers help pad her head just a little so she doesn't look super uncomfortable. All in all I have been super happy with this purchase and would definately recommend this carseat!
