this car seat is quite heavy and very well padded. It is not one you will want to take out of your car to carry the baby or child into a store or grandmas. It is padded in all the right places and can start right off for a small infant. It trans form into a larger seat as your child grows. My grand daughter was very excited to receive this for her baby. As a grandparent I was very impressed with seat and feel it will keep the new baby very safe.
I bought two of these since price was so good. One for my car and one for my son's car. I was disappointed at how flimsy the molded plastic seemed to be. Although, when placed in the car it appears to fit snuggly, and the safety ratings seemed to be good.
so, its cute, matches big sisters booster, meets all the safety requirements and converts for several years. all good things. but I also ordered a ***** *********** for the seldom-but-sometimes second family car. the ******** is sooooo soft and comfy. I've always thought that car seat cushions did not have enough padding , the alpha elite does not have enough padding in the seat cushion especially when compared to the ********. I was a little disappointed but it'll work as the spare.
two car family. the baby travels in one car often and the other very seldom. sometimes on long trips to see family. purchased the evenflo tribute for the seldom car and purchased a $**seat for the often car. The evenflo tribute kicks the other ones butt. I feel silly for spending 3 times as much on the other seat. evenflo is super easy to install, secure-no rocking, adjust and the nicest feature is that the company took care to make sure the baby is comfy. the seat is nice and soft. I've owned 5 car seats and this one is the most well-padded- maybe even the only one I would consider having enough padding for precious cargo. So, the evenflo tribute is in the often car and the other is the spare. Even if you could afford more expensive brands, this one is an excellent choice.
