I work at Children's Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, NE. When necessary, we use the Cosco Comfy Carry Elite to discharge infants weighing 4 pounds or more from our Newborn Intensive Care Unit. This is a great seat, with easy to use features such as the front harness adjuster, a small harness dimension for smaller infants, it is light weight and economically priced. I find installation in the vehicle to be very easy using either the vehicle seat belt or the LATCH attachements.
The only thing that was off about the carseat was the color. In the picture it looks like a dark blue color but it is actually a teal blue color, which is still not bad. Everything else is as pictured. The headrest that goes around the head for the baby came with it. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
I chose this seat because everywhere I looked, it had surprisingly good reviews. After using this seat for a month, I'm disappointed because I have not had the same positive experience as any of the reviewers. I'm not sure where to start. First off, this seat CANNOT sit in the seat area of a shopping cart. This was not stated in any of the reviews nor online descriptions. The seat is very light weight, but that being said, the plastic is very thin. The handle does not feel sturdy when carrying the seat. The seat gets stuck on the base, and I've had to un-buckle my son and take him out of the seat to get him inside. it's taken me as much at 10 minutes to get the seat to release from the base. The cover piece, that flips up and down is completely see-through and offered very little protection from sun, wind, rain, etc.. The tension strap that tightens the shoulder straps is very difficult to loosen. This seems to be due to the design of the button that allows you to loosen it. The base is very easy to install. That's about all I can say that's positive. Bottom line, I wouldn't buy it again, and I would strongly caution anyone against purchasing. spend a few extra bucks and get a better seat. It's more than worth it.
However, my niece hasn't used it yet. It's worth the money.
Got this as a gift @ my baby shower, love the light weight and am hoping we wont have any regrets using this product when my son comes in a few weeks...
