I want to give 5 stars, but.....

published

I absolutely love this seat. So easy to use and my toddler finds it very comfortable and she is still rear facing with plenty of room at nearly 2 years of age. The reason I cannot give 5 stars is that I needed to buy another seat for my second baby, but found out from Britax that the tether strap cannot be moved to the opposite side of the shell due to the SICT. It's a shame as this seat is marketed as being able to fit 3 across, but when the tether is not on the closest side to the door, it makes loosening and re-tightening a bit tricky.

Great car seat

published

This is our first time buying a car seat and was recommended by a friend. The seat is secure, cushioned and comfortable for a 6 month old. Love that it can be used to children up to 4-5 years and is convertible as well. The seat fits comfortably in our mid size SUV. The fabric also feels lovely and no complaints so far!

Larger in size but great

published

It definitely seems comfortable. She doesn’t sweat like her old one. With extended rear facing is great for their safe and she doesn’t complain at all. The clasp protected shifts easily though and I have accidentally pinched her with the buckle a couple of times. Easy to remove and re install in other cars. It is bulky in our prado though.

The BMW of car seats

published

A great secure car seat. Baby fits well into car seat and seems to comfortable in it. Quite a large set up when rear facing and does mean the front passenger loses a lot of leg room.

From what we’ve been showing, very easy to adjust and change as baby grows - we just haven’t quite reached that stage yet!!!

the right seat

published

The few times I have travelled without it, I miss it! The base makes life so much easier, especially when you're trying not to wake a sleeping baby while also trying to juggle a diaper bag. We have two bases (one in each car) to make life even easier! A much cheaper alternative than having two carseats! I want my little guy to stay in his infant carseat as long as possible so we can use the base longer!

So safe and easy to use

published

My child loves her special car seat. We love how easy it was to fit in a standard car (not an SUV) because of the compact size but there’s still plenty of room. She is so comfy and it’s easy to adjust the straps or height as she grows. It works well with ISOFIX in one car and just as well without in the other. We didn’t need a compact one in our second car but wouldn’t get anything else. Happily still rear facing at 14mo- safe in her Britax!

So far so good

published

My baby hated the car seat for the first few weeks... but he also hated anything that restricted him. He is now 6 months and sits happily for car rides. I was so scared of using a car seat as I’m terrible at untwisting seat belts and ones I have used previously with family members babies have been frustrating, this one has been super easy to buckle up every time. The head rest is easy to adjust, it did take me a few frustrating minutes to work out how to put it back down when I accidentally lifted it too high and didn’t have my partner to help, but I managed without reading a manual so that says a lot for me. Overall happy with our purchase.

Fits in my tiny car. Easy to get baby in and out. Bamboo fabric keeps baby cool from sweating. Easy to install your self with ISO fix, it took less than 5 minutes and I’m not a handy person! They hardly go on sale but worth every dollar! Will buy again for next baby.

Safe and easy to use!!

published

Fantastic car seat! Super comfy for my baby, easy to install due to the ISOFIX, it has made travelling easy so far and we plan on taking it with us to America. Very happy with the safety and how compact it fits in the back of our car. Extended rear facing to help with the safety of our baby is also something we wanted when investing in a car seat and made the britax graphene the perfect seat.

Perfect to get 3 across in an SUV

published

This is a great child seat along with all the excellent features it's pretty straight forward to install and is narrow enough to allow 3 seats across in a compact SUV.
We have a cx 5 and with the arrival of our 3rd child we had to either buy a new car or new car seats so we did the latter and also bought a britax maxi guard pro and were able to keep one of our existing seats the safe and sound meridian

Great car seat

My baby loves going for drives in this and is almost guaranteed to fall asleep in it. Easy to use, install and take out to put into another car if need by with the isofix clips. I was doing it myself and I’m a small woman. The fabric feels nice and breathable and is easy to take off and re-install on the seat for convenient washing

Nice seat. Super easy to install.

published

Chose this seat after his capsule became too small.
I like it. He is still too short to be forward facing so I am just reviewing the seat in it's rear facing mode. The installation was a doddle and literally done in under 2 mins. I was so surprised I went back to check that I hadn't missed something. No, it was just very easy (2015 Qashqai).
It seems very comfortable and protective for him.
Quibbles would be that it was hard to attach his toy so that he could play. I had to use the restraining strap and a bit of tape to stop it sliding. That same strap is quite high in my car and it is a little bit of a mission to lift him over it to get him in.

Love it

published

We love this car seat. Our bubs grew out of the capsule really early so we had to get a rear facing one until he was 6 months. Would highly recommend this product for anyone looking. We’ve had another in the past and felt it didn’t fit too well in the car.

Comfort, even for a sooky baby!

published

With ISO fix this car seat is breezy to install. I was a bit nervous installing an isofix car seats for the first time, but to my surprise it was super easy. I love the red and green window to show you when the isofix is tight enough. My very sooky 9 month old HATES the car, but we just purchased this last month and now our trips in the car are at least 50% happier. It’s very comfortable - obviously. Being Britax, I feel like this car seat is one of the safest rear facing car seats on the market. It fits in my Mazda 2 perfectly without compromising safety. We are in lurveeee! We are yet to clean it, but I’m sure it’ll be similar to our maxi guard pro. Thanks Britax!

Love this seat! As a new Mumma there’s so many seats to choose from but I’m so happy with my purchase! Over bumps her head doesn’t even move! I highly recommend this car seat as it’s from birth to 4 years old. We purchased ours on special from baby bunting so it was a bonus!

Very happy

published

It was super easy to install (I initially paid someone to do it professionally, but honestly just go on youtube and follow their instructions, a child could figure it out if you gave them candy to do it).

Looks great, luxurious feel and you can tell it's well made. Solid when installed.

Definitely trust this brand to protect my child.

What a space saver

published

Purchased from Baby Bunting. the staff explained how is is the smallest car seat for compact cars. they were not joking. Reward facing saves space in compact cars so you are able to seat a passenger.Very easy to install yourself. My son and I did it in no time. Baby loves the car seat.

Excellent and very comfortable!!!!!

published

I bought it from baby buntings and got the seat fitted by the Britax certified fitters. To fit this seat in your car (if you car is hatch) then you may need a small extension (strap) to lock it from the bottom of the seat and can be bought in baby buntings for an extra cost ( Approx.$15.00).
MY new born baby (3 days old) was very comfortable in this seat when I places her for the first time leaving hospital. While placing the baby it is very Easy to lay the baby in the seat and also to tighten and lossen the stap. Very comfortable and cozy. Had an incident of milk spill but no stain( Milk spill was only 20ml).
Highly recommended and very comfortable for baby.

Support C.Britax Safe-n-Sound

Hi Mel, thanks for your question. The seat will need to remain in most laid back/reclined postilion when in rear facing. We suggest that you remove the infant insert (if not already done). If you have any further questions, please feel free to email au-support@britax.com

Hi Jeuel B. Thanks for your question. You can have the tether strap changed to the other side on the Britax Safe-n-Sound Graphene by an accredited car seat fitter such as one of our repair agent or the Baby on Board fitters who are based at Baby Bunting stores. Kind regards, the Britax Childcare team.

I recently purchased a britax graphene car seat. However my newborn looks too small for the seat and doesn’t have a lot of head support. Is there another insert that can assist with this?

I am just a happless consumer all I can tell you my experience. Ours came with an insert for newborns. He is 55 cm long and fits snuggly as it goes.
In fact under this insert was hidden a notice that said adjustment is under here. Yes, I found a hole in the plastic base where you put your fingers down and flip what looks like a webbing belt clip. I did not find this notice till I pulled the seat out of the car and started investigating. ( $45 installation my wife wasted). You cant see this sign when trying to place the baby in the seat. I note other models have round button you press.
The other thing I dont like; is those straps that are more or less at the top of it and go down the back of the seat to an anchor point... they make it so the baby has to e lifted over or through them.
What on earth is ISOfix ? It is corporate speak for metal loop. (its attached to the floor accessed through seat squab gap)
