She slept through ... a car accident!!
Reviewed in the United States on December 2, 2016
If that headline doesn't get your attention, I'm not sure what will. BUT, seriously, my child slept through a pretty significant fender bender tucked safely in this car seat.
Right before my daughter turned one I poured over car seats (once again) as she rapidly outgrew her first infant "bucket" seat. I fretted, I compared, I researched to a painstaking degree. In the end, I purchased this car seat (with crossed fingers) because it had many of the features of the much more expensive "name brand" car seats without the price tag.
When the seat arrived I wasn't disappointed. It feels quite sturdy, has adequate padding, seems quite comfortable, fits inside both of our vehicles etc. It may not be the "fanciest" car seat out there, but upon first inspection it seemed to be just "fine" and I was not disappointed in my purchase.
Flash forward 6 months. My daughter is now 18 months old. We are running around taking care of errands, and I am stopped at a stop sign when *BAM* a truck smashes into our tiny hybrid HARD and I mean HARD - it's been determined the driver was going between 30 to 45 miles per hour... and I was completely STOPPED. I jarred both of my legs into the floor, bruised my shoulder area (where the buckle was), and had some pretty serious whiplash. My daughter (rear facing in this car seat) SLEPT through the crash and sustained no injuries...not a single bruise, not a hair out of place. I find that impressive. Safety 1st, did just that - kept my most precious "cargo" safe. To say I recommend this car seat would be an understatement.
