Great Smaller Convertible Car Seat
December 17, 2011
This is a great convertible car seat! When installing the seat rear facing, you recline it all the way then install it. When the seat is installed forward facing, it can be reclined after installation while the toddler is in the seat. This is great feature for a toddler that has fallen asleep in the car. I believe that this is the only convertible seat with independent recline. This seat is not too large. Although both my husband's car and my car are large enough that they would probably fit a larger seat, this one allows more room for other back seat passengers and will fit in other smaller cars, like an out of town grandmother's car for occasional use. The harness strap holders are helpful in holding the straps out of the way when putting a baby in the seat. EPP foam is a nicer, softer foam than EPS foam. The only thing this car seat doesn't have that would be nice is a headrest with side pillows like some of the Britax seats have. I would still buy this one again over any other due to the independent recline in the forward facing position and it's smaller size.
Pros:independent recline in forward facing position
softer EPP foam
harness strap holders
Cons:no headrest with side pillows
