  • Ease of Use:

Pros:looks nice, matches car interior, 5-point harness

Cons:Bulky when rear-facing, twisted straps & no head support when car napping!

The Bottom Line: Save your money and pick a different seat


We received this seat as a shower gift when my daughter was born 3 years ago. At first I liked the seat. When she was 10 months old we put her in it rear facing and the seat was wonderful! It was quite big and bulky in the back seat (wouldn't work in a compact car rear facing) but still worked great. It was stylish and looked quite comfortable but then she got older and the problems started. When she turned 14 months (shes petite so we kept her backwards for longer) we turned her forward. The seat all of a sudden sucked! Everytime she fell asleep her head fell forward! Her poor neck hung like a limp noodle while we drove down the road. No matter how many times I adjusted the head rest height..her head still fell forward. The sides are just too shallow to cradle a toddlers head while they are sleeping. We went out and bought a Graco comfortsport (inexpensive) and we love it! When she naps in the car she can lean her head to the side and it actually stays! Another thing we disliked about the Alpha Omega was the way the straps twisted over time. If you are not careful the straps become a thin twisted mess instead of a nice wide strap.
