This is the carseat I've been using with my little one and my husband and I both absolutely love it. I would recommend this to anyone. It is so easy to get the baby into the carseat as the straps adjust easily by just pushing a button and pulling. And moving the position of the straps up is easy as well. Plus, it's super easy to switch the base from car to car with the quick buckles and easy to take the seat out by just pulling on the handle.

I love this carseat! I am the type of person who does a lot of research for big buys like this and I am so glad I decided on this one. My son is 2 and finally facing forward and it was such a cool milestone, his face lit up and loves to look around while I drive. I love that I can use this right off the bat when I have my second child and since I have two, I can still use one for my son to grow up with! I do wish that there was a way to have him laying a little more back while in front facing so he would be more comfortable but its not possible because of my carseat holding it in place, which makes sense of course. My son seems to have no problem falling asleep and does seem comfortable either way.

We have the Graco SnugRide Extend2Fit and love it! It can be exhausting choosing a car seat and I have no regrets with the one we selected. Baby always seems to be comfortable in this one and it is easy to click into a base in either mine or my husbands car. The only thing that would make it better is if it were easier to disconnect from the base with one hand. When we first started using the car seat and I was still recovering from c-section, it was difficult to reach into the car with both hands to remove the seat and lift it up from the base.

I was very impressed with this infant carrier. It was lightweight and easy to connect to the base and stroller. It was nice to be able to purchase extra bases for all of our vehicles instead of having to purchase car seats for each. Would definitely use again.

I love love love this car seat!!! It is super lightweight and easy to transport. The base clicks in super easy you can do it with one hand. You can easily move the base from car to car in under 5 minutes. It’s not confusing to set up and it’s really solid. It comes with an infant insert that you can take out as your child grows. My son is always happy and comfortable whenever he’s inside his seat. This seat also is super convenient for the stroller attachment that goes with it that clicks right in again with just one hand. Super convenient and great for busy on the go moms.

We have 2 of these seats, one in each vehicle. The safety and build was my main influece on purchasing. The brand also has many sales throughout the year. We used rear facing and it was comfortable. Its a little bit finicky to install as it is heavy but my husband manages no problem. The ratchet crank takes some getting used to but it helps ensure your child is properly buckled in. We also had to use the angle adjuster so that we had enough room in a previous vehicle. I would recommend diono and this seat to other.

We moved our daughter to this when we forward faced her right after her 3rd birthday. She has never said it’s uncomfortable so that’s something! As the parent, it was easy to install. The buckle piece that goes between the legs is very hard to move though, so your best bet is to have the kid sit in the seat and buckle them in it before you install it so you can get correct placement of it. It can also be a little difficult to pull it right all the way (following the “pinch rule” of the straps where you can’t pinch them and get extra fabric) so be aware of that, especially if you have someone not familiar with the seat putting your child in there. We’ve used this seat for almost a year now and my daughter is still very comfortable in the 5 point harness and will stay in it until she reaches the max requirements.

I love this car seat! It’s easy to install in the car and provides comfortable padding. I also really like that it extends in the back to support their head as they grow and get taller.

I have absolutely fallen in love with the Evenflo Omni Plus travel system. It was absolutely awesome. From the moment that I was able to put it together to the time that I was using it, the system has been so easy. Set up for it was extremely easy, for both the stroller and carseat. I love being able to have this for my little one. I can easily transition the bassinet for when she is an infant to a regular stroller for when she becomes a toddler. This is a great travel system for anyone that is looking for one to last awhile.

We are currently using this car seat for our 2 yr old and we absolutely love it. I feel 100% confident with her in this car seat. It’s heavy and cushioned to protect her in case of an accident. The extend to fit is perfect for use when she’s napping on the car for a little foot rest. We have a cheaper car seat in my husbands car that isn’t used very often and I do not trust that car seat as much as I do this one.
