Update #2 BEST SEAT EVER! UPDATE! We love this seat! Original; Random screw in reclining mechanism
By Sharon Lyn Hayes on November 3, 2019
This seat is amazing!
Our little fella is now 16 months and 28+ pounds. He rides well in this seat with no complaints of being uncomfortable. He isn’t sweaty when we take him out of the seat.
He did get sick one day while I was driving with him alone (super scary!).
The seat was easy to clean and looks AND SMELLS amazing even after a huge mess!
I really like the fact that it is easy to install. When he is super tired I am able to adjust in the recline (while staying within the guidelines) to something a little more comfortable for snoozing.
Love this seat! Worth every penny!
Just wish it came with the anti rebound bar...
Seems crazy to spend another $55 - especially during a pandemic when we don’t travel often or far.
Bottom line - BUY THIS SEAT!
We have had the replacement seat for a little over three months.
Return of the original seat was super easy via Kohl’s. The new seat came on time and in perfect condition.
Our chunk lives this seat!
He is super comfortable.
It is amazingly easy to install via the lower anchors.
Our little one was always sweaty in the infant seat but that hasn’t been a problem in this one.
He can see out well so he is happy - maybe he doesn’t feel trapped?
Getting him in and out of the seat is easy since the straps stay off to the sides well and the center buckle stays forward so I’m not fumbling for it and struggling with a mobile baby at the same time.
If we had the extra funds I would purchase a second one for our Subaru!
Moving this seat around is rather cumbersome as it is heavy and awkward for me to move (I’m 5’1” and 110 pounds). The thought of carrying it inside the house makes me cringe but it is a stationary seat so that isn’t a problem.
It feels sturdy. When I put him in the seat I know he is safe. I love the padding at the head and couldn’t ask for more from a seat!
Other than the straps pull uneven if you yank them from one side I haven’t had any trouble with this seat. Easy fix - pull both straps as it is a Y type system. It’s easy to fix by pulling the shorter strap to adjust until even.
Overall - we love this seat! TOTALLY worth the investment!
**Amazon delivered this seat on time and undamaged from shipment.
We ordered this seat for our nearly 22lb 6 month old as (we gave out Chicco KeyFit to our daughter) our son was uncomfortable in his infant seat on rides lasting longer than 15 minutes. He is just too wide to be comfortable in the Chicco KeyFit.
**We loved the KeyFit and would have kept him in it until he reached the maximum height and weight if he wasn’t a short stocky little chunk!
I was so excited for this seat to arrive and have a comfortable seat for a little guy. Thank goodness I noticed this screw before installing this seat in my car!! I have no idea if a screw is missing from the inside components of the seat or if an extra one somehow managed to get trapped during manufacturing...
I have Amazon sending a replacement that will arrive Monday (this seat came Saturday evening - it now 8am Sunday morning). I am now trapped at home until the new seat arrives. Amazon said they couldn’t get a replacement to me today.
I will update once we get the replacement. After all of this I hope the seat lives up to the hype.
