We bought this car seat for our 3rd child. The car seat we used for our first two had expired so we decided to get this one and also buy the baby trend sit and stand stroller that goes with it. We bought it a few months before our daughter was born. Once she was born and we actually tried it out there were a lot of things I didn't like about it. First of all, on the one we got the left button on the handle that you push in to adjust it up and down is EXTREMELY stiff and sticks so it is almost impossible to get it to move forward and back. My husband always has to do it and it's even hard for him. He has to do it when our baby isn't in there because it takes so much force. I would imagine that this is probably not the case with all of them and we probably just got a defective one. We looked in to the warranty to see what we could do but because we had bought it a few months before she was born the warranty had already expired. The other thing I don't like is the triangle carrying handle. Because we can't get the handle to adjust forward and back very easily, it is hard to get my baby in and out without bonking her head on the triangle part. It is also a very heavy car seat, so trying to carry it with that triangle handle makes it difficult and awkward. Also, I don't know if this is how all new car seats are made now, but the base has her tripped really far forward. This is also the case when we click her car seat in to the corresponding stroller. I feel like she is going to fall right out if it weren't for the buckles! I am actually not a huge fan of the stroller either. I don't know if its a coincidence or not but from day one my baby has hated her car seat and cries every time we get her in it. If I were to do it over again, I would not buy this car seat or the stroller.
