  • User Rating: Disappointing

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Looks impressive; all fabric-no vinyl or metal "hotspots" after sitting in the sun

Cons:Too big; bad angle for reflux baby?

The Bottom Line: Would not recommend. Too hard to install, bad angle for sleeping or for reflux


If there is a bigger car seat out there, I would be amazed. It is ginormous. I feel like I have a Barcalounger the back seat of my Accord. If I had gotten a Civic, we probably would have to remove the back seat to get this car seat installed. You would think my 8 month old son would be very happy in his own personal LaZboy, but no. He ends up in a puddle of sweat because there is not enough ventilation. Also, when he falls asleep, he ends up with his head at that crazy angle that drives parents nuts but babies think is perfect for sleeping. I have the car seat set to its most reclined position, but he still ends up with his head in his lap.

The LATCH system leaves only about 1 inch of extra belt for adjustment. I had a police officer car seat inspector come out and show me how to install it. He was not impressed while trying to tighten the car seat down using only his fingernails to grip the LATCH belt. I dread each Saturday when my husband takes the car seat and I have to put it back in. It takes me at least 15 minutes, all because of NOTHING TO HANG ONTO TO TIGHTEN THE SEAT. The other problem with transferring the car seat is the handle is virtually non-existent. It has a little divot of a handle, but it is not enough for me to hang on to and move the seat. A seat this heavy should have a big, sturdy handle like on a suitcase or something.

My son has reflux. Even so, he his normally not a fussy baby and only complains when something is honestly bothering him. He loved riding in his old "bucket" car seat, but when I load him into this one after he has eaten, he cries. He is OK if we wait an hour or two, though. I strongly suspect the angle of the seat aggravates his reflux.
