I purchase this car seat towards the end of July when it first became available. I heard a lot of good things about the baby trend carseats. I like how the base is slimmer. I have another daughter who is in a booster so the slimmer base allows for another person in the back seat. My daughter was born a few weeks early and still fits in the car seat saftly and comfortably. The cute little foot cover helps keep her blanket over her feet and she stays nice and warm. The car seat is also very light weight which is very important for new moms that shouldn't be lifting too much right away. You have to unhook the car seat from the base by using the lever by the childs feet, most car seats its by their head. I personally like this option because it can't just be knocked off the base by moving the seat in front of it. I also love the fact that its purple and not pink like most of the other girl car seats. I didn't like the birds on it at first but the more I looked at it the more I fell in love! Also the colors are true to what the picture shows on the web site. Hope this helps!
This is a really nice car seat! I love the triangle handle, it makes it really easy to carry and lift it into the truck. It's also very easy to clean. I love how comfortable my baby seems and I also love how easy it is to adjust the straps and how the head support is so sturdy. The sunvisor covers most of the carseat and is very sturdy. It also has very high safety reviews online so I feel safe putting someone so precious in it.
Hands down, best car seat. My wife and I have had troubling experiences with many other car seats, and baby related products. This one is easy...easy set up, easy to move.....looks good,....but i also have noticed its very stain resistant...and as parents we know how important that is.....anyway its a good one...thought i'd let you know.
This car seat is just beautiful and not pink which was exactly what I was looking for. The seat itself is rather light weight so that will be very nice when hauling around the little one and the seat anchors are very heavy duty so my little baby wont be going anywhere! Great quality and it's just as beautiful as it looks in the picture.
I was completely frustrated with car seat shopping and made a hasty decision to buy this car seat. AFTER I completed my order, I read nothing but negative reviews (not related to safety, just overall user satisfaction). My husband and I decided to buy a second car sear also from Baby Trend with better ratings. We figured the Chicadee seat could go to the grandparent’s house….
First off, this car seat is snug! The shape of the seat encloses around the baby thus the reasons for negative reviews about how hot babies get in this seat and how quickly they outgrew it. If you are having your baby in Arizona during the summer, no I would not purchase this car seat. However, if you live in a cold climate and are concerned about how you will keep your baby bundled during the winter, you will love this car seat. The way it encloses around your baby helps protect against wind/rain/snow. I was using both car seat models we purchased at the same time and my baby was much more exposed to cold weather in the other car seat.
There is an additional benefit to the shape of the car seat and this is the main reason I would give my recommendation for it. As a new mother there is nothing worse than having strangers come to look at and touch your newborn baby. I noticed that I took my daughter out in the open faced car seat, strangers were much more likely to invite themselves over to bother us. In the Chickadee model the baby is closed off and strangers aren’t bold enough to be that invasive in your personal space. My husband and I both noticed the significant difference and stopped using the second car seat altogether.
My daughter did outgrow the car sear around 6 months, but we were ready for a new car seat at that time anyways. If you are okay with the fact that your baby will outgrow this car seat before 12 months and will be delivering during the winter season, this is an excellent car seat.
Wonderful item! Great size weight and design! Love the convenience of click-n-go!
After researching over and over again I settled on this baby trend infant car seat. I like the style, the adjusting of the back seat with a turn of a knob, the easy snap in and out of the base, affordability, the anti-slip triangle handle and it's safety quality. I would def recommend this car seat to anybody. note* back seat padding is not removeable but I don't see a need to remove it so it wasn't a deal breaker for me. Def has a enough room and or padding for my babies head & neck. Plus it's super cute!!!! More purple in color than pink. Really easy to use and comes assembled.
I love this car seat, except for one little thing. Having to put the buckles together to slide them into the bottom buckle is a pain. Other than that, I love the look, I love how easy it is to adjust the shoulder height, and I love how light it is to carry. I would definitely recommend this product.
I HATE this car seat. My daughter is so uncomfortable in it. Her poor little head is pushed forward due to the built in head rest (that you cannot remove). I had it installed by someone that installs car seats for a living and she hated it. She had to put a towel under the base so that my daughter would be more reclined and even with that her head falls forward. I thought it would get better when shes older but it hasn't improved and shes now 6 months old. Its cute but not worth it!!!
Absolutely love the design of the product and its features but my baby was born 8lbs 0.6oz by the time I bought this she was 12lbs only 2m, and it goes to 30lbs so for $84 which is a good price I'm hoping she can still fit in it until at least 6m, lol. Very narrow on the inside.
I love this seat. Just got it in the mail today and everything about it is great...until we tried to adjust the straps. Only two of the slots on the back of the seat are open. The other four are closed up! My baby is due Sunday so we don't even have time to send it back and get another seat like this one. My husband is talking about cutting out the plastic himself. I am very unhappy about this. I have never received anything in the mail that was faulty! Otherwise, I would give it 5 stars.
I absolutely LOVE IT!! It looks just as pictured, and is the ONLY purple carseat available almost anywhere! I just wish it had a little more fabric on the sides... but I'm not a knit-picker.
I'm not sure if it's my computer or the picture, but I thought this car seat was a different color. I'm happy with it though, I love purple, and the seat is so adorable. It's heavy with the base, which I think makes it feel sturdy, but without the base it's light enough for any parent to carry. The material is a little different than it looks, it looks like it's very cozy but it's actually a better material for cleaning, it's a little shiny. I can't really think how to describe it. I'm glad we got this seat, it's going to be perfect for our little girl.
i love this seat for baby it's cute and easy , comfy to carry with baby ,
recently bought one for a friend and she loves it.
We really like this carseat. Its really user friendly, cute, and it has a good consumer rating. Only had it two weeks but so far, we've been very pleased. The only cumbersome thing about it is the buckle between the legs has to fit together before they clip in. Its kind of awkward to negotiate sometimes, but that's the only complaint.
I got this car seat as a gift before my baby was born, with the matching play yard and high chair. I love the design, and and it's super easy to adjust. However, for some reason, the baby hated it. She screamed every minute she was in it. It also bothered me a little that the belt buckles are plastic, not metal, and you have to hold them together in one hand awkwardly to get the seat buckled. They don't go in one at a time, they have to placed together in a certain position before being inserted. You have to hold them like that, without letting them slip, and try to shove them in one-handed. Getting the seat buckled around a screaming baby was next to impossible sometimes. We switched to a convertible as soon as we could and the baby was much happier, as was I. Recently sold this seat at a garage sale, even though I'm expecting another baby. I would not buy this car seat again.
I absolutley love this car seat. The colors are so adorable and it's exactly what I wanted! Very, very satified! (:
This is a great transitional car seat. Really cute!!
Love the color, not too bright and very elegant.
Received this item very fast for a baby shower....thank you so much!
