I had my first born 19 months ago and it was quite a struggle as it didn't recline that far back when it was rear facing so we used to put a rolled towel for it to go further (copied by other reviewers). Now I am due for baby number 2 and I decided to have a proper look at the seat today to realise there is a big clip boost underneath the car seat that unfolds and makes the seat recline way further. Always good to read a manual hey. Wish I checked this properly a long time ago but great for now as my first born can now be placed in a new carseat for up to 8 year olds. Have pictured what it looks like with the extra boost. Hope this helps anyone who had this issue.
Not for newborns
DO NOT BUY FOR YOUR NEWBORN...
I would never recommend this seat for newborns.
It is dangerous. Only use if your child is over 6months of age. The seat looks comfortable and full of padding but it doesn't recline enough for babies that can't hold their own head up.
Great car seat
This is has been a lifesaver. It is very easy to install and has been a pleasure to use. I have used this for my nephew from age 6 months. He was able to be rear facing until almost 2. The carseat cover comes off easy for washing and comes up great in a soak with a little napisan and eucalyptus oil. The straps are easy to clean with a damp cloth.
Could be better
Fairly easy to install following the manual, although we did get it installed by a professional the first time. Not sure if it’s right that it feels slightly wobbly. Tightening and loosening the seatbelts is not easy, and the manual is not very clear on this topic ... we even had to call helpdesk coming out of the hospital. Now the baby is 1.5yo, she struggles to find a comfortable place to put her feet and often ends up with one leg on each armrest. Otherwise, no issue.
Great seat for the price
We have had 4 kids and been through at least 6 different seats and multiple boosters.
4 months ago we purchased this one my daughter (2yo) had outgrown her previous one which was a handmedown from her older brothers.
We looked at a number of different seats in the age range, not needing it for a new born meant we didn't need something as restrictive and this one suited us best out of all of them.
There isnt a huge amount of padding which was ok with us because our daughter fit well within it. Any more padding would have made it restricti...ve and highly annoying for her. Installation is about as easy as it gets with the usual straps with ample length to fit most vehicles to connect to the mount and easily slipping the belt underneath the seat cover. I highly recommend if you have leather (or even cloth) then use a blanket or something to go underneath to stop it from ruining the seats.
Good Car set
My Child likes to sit in this car seat, It feels safe and does the job well. It is very easy to install. Also when you want to clean it, covers come off so that you get wash them. One down side is I found it quite bulky with 3 kids across the back of my car. I guess most seats are bulky for safety. overall a good seat.
Not super happy.
We bought it from Big W early 2017 for $199.
We find that even though the product is sturdy and of a good quality make, I find it hard to believe that it is for 0 to 4 years old.
The seat sits very very upright, that I had to hold my baby's head back to ensure open airway position.
Now, my bubba is 5 months I am just getting comfortable using this carseat. Even so, when bub falls asleep, his chin would fall forward, touching his chest.
I would love to return my purchase and get a better carseat.
