Nice, but some issues
February 17, 2014
This is a nice car seat in a lot of ways. However, I've had a few issues with it. One is that it was difficult to level when it was rear facing in my car. My back seat must slope down further than a lot, because we really had to use a lot of padding to get it level. Because we had to do that, I wasn't happy with how stable it was. If your car's back seat does not slope so much, you'll probably have an easier time. When we were able to make the seat face forward, I felt that the installation was much more solid. However, now I have a new problem that is forcing me to get a new car seat. The center crotch strap needs to be just longer if your toddler has chubby thighs. Because of the way the buckles are shaped, they can push into the toddlers thighs which is, of course, uncomfortable.
Pros:Attractive. Light weight.
Cons:Rear facing installation in some cars.
Crotch strap that is too short for bigger toddlers.
Best Uses:Forward facing or rear-facing in a back seat that does not slope much to the back. Use with a toddler who does not have chubby thighs.
