We bought this for our visiting grand babies. It has worked out very well. It is easy to set up and take down. It grows with the children from newborn to toddler.
My youngest is 5 months and weighs 17 lbs and in the 75th percentile for the length and fits comfortably in this SnugRide Infant Car Seat. I never thought I would actually find an infant seat that my daughter liked and that I liked.Compared to many other infant seats (she's my 3rd child) this one is definitely amongst the easiest to install with a tight fit and the narrow base allows us to fit her in the middle without touching the other two carseats in the car. With the slight recline in the car seat my daughter can lay back and enjoy the ride while rear facing, I do love that this is designed for extended rear facing since we rear faced my other two children until they were 2. Now even though this Infant seat is designed so you can easily take the carseat out and carry it, I choose to only take it out of the car so we don't get any fading. When we go to the store I still take my baby out of the car seat and choose to wear her vs leaving her in. The seat to me gets really heavy when you have a 17 lb baby in and it's just easier for me to take her out vs trying to get the car seat over my other children's seats. If this car seat was around when my other two children were born I would have bought this one instead of going through multiple car seats, hands down the SnugRide would have saved us from many rides full of screaming. I did received this car seat free of charge in exchange for my honest review
