    Amazing carseat!!

    I got this carseat when my baby outgrew her travel system carseat (6 months old) but in a different color. It is an absolutely amazing carseat. The reclining feature is my favorite. It is quite easy to install (you'll need a towel to prop up in the rear facing position). I have read on other sites from people that they had to remove the base to install rear facing. We have never had that problem in either of our vehicles (2003 Saturn Vue and 1990 Nissan Pathfinder). The fabric is soft and well padded. My little girl loves it and seems very comfortable. We live in the desert (Las vegas) and often drive to Phoenix, Az (5 hr drive) and she doesn't get sweaty like she did in her old carseat. I am VERY happy with the purchase and look forward to using this as a carseat and booster seat. It'll be the only carseat you'll need!

    Our 3rd child was out growing her carrier/car seat so I started searching for the next size up because the other one we have is still in use by our 2 year old. I really liked this seat because she could use it from now (7 months) until she no longer needs to ride in a booster seat. I was a bit hesitant about buying this seat because of so many reviews that said it was difficult to install it correctly when rear-facing. It was no problem. It is a two-person job. I worked on it alone for about 10 minutes, then my husband helped for about 5 more minutes and we had it installed. We did use a rolled up towel beneath the seat to help get the correct level. We did not have to remove the base like others said. We drive a Honda Odyssey and it fits behind the driver seat while we still have room in the driver seat. It is quite large, but it works. The baby likes it just fine (not that she's very picky). It's also easy to get her in and out. We like the seat!!

    I am a little disappointed in the car seat. I definitely do not think it is as good for an infant as the ones that have a base with removable carrier. When I take my 10 week old granddaughter I have to take the carrier as well. That means taking her out of the carseat and putting her in the carrier, then taking her out of the carrier and back into the car seat. After doing that a few times we had a cranky baby that couldn't just rest peacfully like she usually does when she's just popped back into the base. As a booster seat, it will not be just the seat. The child will set in the whole thing after removing many of the inserts. Which will mean storing all these odd pieces somewhere until we are done using the seat. I love the color and it does look sturdy. I have to go to my Toyota dealer to have some of the hooks installed. I don't feel it is as safe without the LATCH system in place. Overall I think it is worth the money, as long as your child is out of the infant stage and no longer using a carrier.

    I PURCHASED THIS FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER AND IT MET AND EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. IT IS VERY ATTRACTIVE, HAS ALL THE SAFETY FEATURES YOU WOULD WANT FOR YOUR PRECIOUS CARGO. IT IS CONFORTABLE, WELL PADDED, SECURE AND HAS THE ABILITY TO CHANGE AS SHE GROWS AND HAS NEED OF OTHER SEATING. THE PRICE WAS REASONABLE AND ACTUAL BEAT OTHER STORES. I RECEIVED A WELL CONSTRUCTED PRODUCT THAT FULFILLED THE NEED AS WELL AS THE QUALIFICATIONS THE LAW REQUIRES. I WOULD AND HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS CAR SEAT TO OTHERS.

    I got this carseat when my daughter was 9 months old. It is a rather large carseat but fits very well in my Saturn Vue and in my husbands Nissan Pathfinder. When we had it in the rear facing position we had to prop it even when it was fully reclined but now that it is front facing it's perfect. It is so extremely comfortable and cute (I have a different pattern that is no longer available). It cleans up easily with a wet rag and I vacuum it weekly to keep it looking nice. I, however, did not like the headrest in the forward facing position, it pushed my daughters head forward too much if she fell asleep so we removed it. The reclining positions are easy to use, it's easy to install and very comfy! I HIGHLY recommend this carseat to anyone, it's worth every penny.

    It is the lazy boy type of comfort for your child. It is also very easy to switch into the best seated position for your child.

    The seat is extremely durable, high quality, and very pretty (in girl's designs). My daughter is 3yrs old and has never had another seat. The fit is great. The seat just keeps growing. The price is good for the amount of growing your child can do before leaving the Omega Convertible Carolina. I paid $179 and have no regrets. The latch system is well made. We've had no safety issues. The material is soft, like a high end home cloth recliner. My baby always seems comfy. The newborn stage has the built in neck pilliow which kept her head in place. I would buy again if needed. The seat is extremely adjustable. Please expect many parts. I recommend keeping the instructions or downloading a copy from Safety 1st. The installation is longer #not difficult) than the cheap $40 seats but well worth the effort. I'm extremely picky in this area. Your experience may be quicker.

    Overall my family and I thought this was an excellent car seat. Our only complaint was that it would not sit level in the rear facing position. No matter what we did it would not work in either my husbands or my car. We tried rolling a towel and the pool noodle as suggested in the owners manual, still it would not level. We had to return the seat to the store.

    • A. If you ever need help in this extemely important area please visit an inspection station: http://www.nhtsa.gov/cps/cpsfitting/index.cfm As the last poster stated we followed directions and my hub 6ft4 kneeled in the seat. Our baby's seat doesn't budge! The inspector was confident we had a good fit.

    • A. Are you using the seatbelt or latch system for installation? We used the latch. It says not to use the strap on the top when rear facing, but we do because it stabalized the seat. We latched the top one to a hook on the floor intended for a removable seat in our van. My husband actually sat in the seat while I tightened the strap. Hope this helps!
