no need for the rear facing option
This is a well-engineered seat, but there really is no reason for the rear-facing option. A rear facing seat should really be a stand-alone item that has a removable base and handle so you can load the baby in the house and then just click it into the car. A 3-in-1 seat is better than this 4-1, which is why I bought the Nautilus 3-1 for my other car. Bottom line - don't buy this seat, just get a 3-in-1 once your child is large enough, otherwise use a dedicated rear facing seat.
