When it came time to move up from an infant car seat to the bigger size I put in hours of research into which car seat had the highest safety ratings, the most useful features, the best customer reviews and many other little things that tell you how a product will work for you. I finally decided on this one. I was pleasantly surprised to discover how lightweight this one was. I had definitely expected that it would be heavier but in reality it is only nine pounds.
The cover comes off easily and is machine washable. Which is very handy considering that any snack, treat, or drink that goes into my sons hand in his car seat also goes all over the seat itself. The seat is equipped with the LATCH system, which makes it easy to install. It’s also easy to recline which is great when you are planning on using it long term as it grows with the child.
The cup holder that comes with the seat is quite flimsy and doesn’t hold much. I have tried putting sippy cups into it and it did not work for them. The only thing it will work for is foam or paper cups and if you have toddlers you know that those just will not work. It isn’t such a big deal seeing as a sippy cup has a secure lid anyways and doesn’t need to be upright at all times but it is too bad that it has that feature that won’t work for me.
With so many pros and not a lot of cons it is pretty easy to see why I would without a doubt recommend this to parents looking for a car seat the next size up. The comfort and ease of use make it top of the list for a lot of mothers and fathers, including myself and the good quality means that is will probably last through a couple of children using it.
