Already 2 years old and Albee Baby giving out incorrect information regarding safety issues!
May 12, 2014
The car seat base works just fine, but the one they sent me was already 2 years old and these expire 6 years from the date of manufacture, meaning that I've lost out on a third of the life of the carseat, They told me that all their car seat bases of this model are about that old. The worst part is that when I called, the woman with whom I spoke told me that car seat bases don't expire. I asked what her source was and she told me that is what Graco told them. I called Graco directly to confirm, since that didn't sound correct to me, and according to Graco, they DO expire. The fact that Albee Baby is giving out incorrect information in regards to the safety of infants is what bothers me the most. I knew well enough to question the incorrect advice, but other mothers may not know any different, which could, in turn, put their babies at risk in a car accident. I expected more from Albee Baby. While I would recommend this car seat base if it fits your needs, I would highly recommend that you purchase it elsewhere!
