Overall A Great Carseat
August 12, 2013
Have not had the opportunity to use this yet because I am not due for a few months, but this is my second baby and I can already tell that I like it more than my daughters infant seat. I have a few complaints but they are things that may not bother other ppl, overall I love way more things about this seat than I dislike. I would definitely buy it again.
My favorite things about it
-Size of the sun shade, it offers better coverage than any car seat I've seen (my daughters infant seat had a TINY sun shade)
-It is very padded and seems very comfortable
-The height and weight limit are great. We had to replace my daughters evenflo seat at 8 months, but she could still fit into this one if we wanted her to.
-The material feels pretty plush, my daughters seat felt more like plastic and made her sweat.
-One hand adjustable straps. Some infant seats adjust in the back and it drives me up the wall.
-It has a swivel thing on the side to make sure it is level when installing, my daughters seat just had a line and I felt like it was hard to make sure it was sitting right.
-The privacy shade is detachable.
Things I don't think I will like
-The sun shade is difficult to move past the handle, but I think this is the case with most seats.
-The swivel to level the car seat is only located on the base. I am not sure how you would make sure the seat was level if you weren't using the base.
-The buttons you press to move the handle and to release the seat from the base are blue. I bought the seat because it was gender neutral, I just didn't pay enough attention the the picture. I would still use it for a girl, but would like it more if they were the standard red or maybe black.
-The seats' limit on height is great, but how large it is does make me a little concerned for how it will seat a newborn. The padding insert for around the baby's head is soft, but doesn't seem like it would keep an newborn's head from moving much in an accident or falling over when they sleep. I will see if I can update this when my baby gets here and let you know how well it held his head.
