I bought this carseat for my then 8 month old daughter when I got tired of lugging her infant seat everywhere. She is tiny, and I love how this seat has so much padding to make her look and feel secure in such a big seat. She is now about to turn two and the seat is still perfect for her. She is still rear-facing (she only weighs 22lbs) and the seat is plenty deep enough for her to sit comfortably and her legs are not cramped. I like that this seat has such a high weight limit for rear facing, as more and more studies are showing that the longer you can keep them rear-facing, the safer they are. The removable padding and head rest make this a very comfortable ride for her now, and make me confident that this carseat will fit her for years. The price is very good compared to other carseats that have many of the same features. Installation is not easy, but I've never owned a carseat that was easy to install correctly. If you want a seat installed well it takes hard work, and this one is no worse than any, and far better than some. The cover removes fairly easily and washes great...mine has been spat, puked, and pooped on and comes out of the washer looking brand new. The only thing that I wish was different about this seat is that the 5-point harness had a higher weight limit, as most experts are now agreeing that 40 pounds is too small to be moved into a belt positioning booster. So I will probably be buying a new seat for her when she hits 40 lbs (although at this rate that might be a while) and putting her older sister into the booster seat. Overall: A great seat at a reasonable price, I would definitely recommend, but keep in mind you may still need another seat after 40lbs before they are ready for the belt positioning booster.
