Too big for my car and buckle was a pain
December 13, 2017
I really wanted to love the seat because it was so cozy and I loved the look of it. However, it was too wide to accommodate car pooling comfortably. The deal breaker for me was the buckle though. I despise the type of buckle that's used in this seat, it was very difficult for me to push the button and I dreaded the thought of having to wrestle with it multiple times a day for years. So ultimately it had to go back :/

1 Question & 1 Answer
from Pembroke Pines, Florida asked:
May 18, 2017
Is a base required for car installation? If so, where can one purchase? I previously bought maxi cosi and base was included and states so in description on Albee Baby website. Please advise, very interested
This is a convertible car seat, convertible car seats do not have detachable bases like infant car seats do.
