Bought this item for my 2 year old. I like the concept of grow with me seats, but this one while is ok misses the mark on several things. While the padding provides a nice comfy place to sit, the material causes my child's back to sweat when he is in it. The straps are also always getting twisted, which causes me to have to take the seat out, untwist so I can use the strap to pull the harness tight. The buckle padding occasionally hurts his inner thighs at times as well. Mostly on long trips he will start saying it hurts mommy.
