I received this car seat, in the moon birch color, as a baby shower present. It is so pretty! I can't wait to use it when my little one arrives in a month. It's lightweight and stylish. It comes with a base. So far seems easy to use. The canopy comes down a good amount to help shield baby from sunlight. I've noticed others down come down as low. I'll have to update his once I try it out again with baby in it.
