I am very happy with the quality of this car seat. Our baby has been in it for about two months now and loves it. The cup holder is a wonderful distraction since he is still rear facing. We had the Chicco infant seat and wanted to continue with the Chicco brand, and we are not disappointed. The base does not come off of this seat, and though it may be alot of seat, I love the leveling system and that we can use it until baby is 65 pounds! We have already moved this seat into grandparents vehicles with ease, and have even taken the entire seat out while babe sleeps and brought it inside without issues. Highly recommend, my mama heart is at ease with little one in this heavy, cushioned, comfortable seat!
ProsThe zip for easy cleaning, cup holder for toys and back up pacis (for now), the leveling system so that you know you have everything in place properly and the cushioning.. feels so comfy!
ConsThat the base doesn't detach, although I understand why, just makes the transition to other vehicles a little more cumbersome that a quick base click.
