I bought this exact car seat in a different design for my daughter when she was 11 months old, a year and a half ago. She is now 2 and I am pregnant again and I will DEFINITELY buy this car seat for my new child! I love this pattern because we are waiting to find out the gender and this will work perfect!
The reason I say this is the best car seat on the market is because I did months of research before choosing on a car seat when I bought my daughters. This car seat is side impact tested and very safe. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how easy this car seat is to handle! It is a tad bit heavy but if you're just putting it in the car then you'll be fine. The head rest is awesome with a handle on it and easy to take off and put on. The straps blew me and my family away at how easy they are to adjust! Just pull the tabs and move, no rethreading, literally takes about 10 seconds. The buckles are safe and easy enough for adults hands (my little hands and my dad's big hands both maneuver these buckles easily) but not too easy for little hands (like when my 2 year old screams and pushes and pulls in every attempt to get out but can't get the buckles undone...she loves this car seat "MY CAR SEAT" but hates being in the car for more than 15 minutes. period.). The straps adjust very easily with the bottom pull adjustment, although this might be hard to do in rear facing, it's still a very easy process in forward facing. My two most favorite features are how EASY it is to switch from rear facing to forward facing with a simple flip of the big lever thing on the bottom and it's done. Just turn it around!!! The very, very best is how well the latch system and seat belt system work together. Whether rear or forward facing the seat has built in latches that hold the buckle in place, VERY well and when coupled with the latch system and done tightly the seat is put very well in place. I have never had a wreck with my child but I have no doubt that were that to happen, she would be very safe and secure. Which is why my new child will get the same treatment :)
Did I mention this car seat is amazingly easy to wash?! Simply has 4 straps to unhook in the back and then just snaps on & off the base of the seat! I machine wash and put it in the dryer, still works perfect for me after a year and a half!
