    The car seat is comfortable when it has the insert in but when the child outgrows the insert it doesn’t look comfy.
    The straps of the harness of the seat get tangled with the car seat belt all the time which makes it extra long and difficult to get child on the seat.

    We bought this seat as my son became too big for his 0 car seat at 7 months and we still wanted to keep him rearward facing.
    I really like the seat, it's fairly easy to fit, converts to forward facing when your child is ready and can be used rearward facing from birth.
    The only downside is that even in the recline position (rearward facing) the seat is still very upright and my son will then try to pull himself forward a lot.

    I have 2 of them car seats ( I have twins) it took me a long time to find a car seat narrow enough to put all 3 of my children on the back of my car ( withing our price range) This car seat was the answer. Twins love being in their car seats. They look very comfortable. Easy to recline once they asleep. Reasonably priced.

    This seat is so easy to use. We have one in each car. The only downside is that you can’t wash the cover.
    My daughter is 4 and has used it since she was 9 months old. Doesn’t want to give it up as ‘big girl seats aren’t as comfy!’.
    Out of the mouths of babes!!

    Bought this seat around 3 months ago, and so far its been a great seat. Our 9 month old is absolutely loving it at the moment. She's always comfy, and as rear facing its sometimes hard for the little ones to see what's going, however with this seat she has a great view out of the window and loves being able to see so much! The straps are super easy to loosen and tighten up again. Is super sturdy when installed too. Definitely a great purchase, and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Its not the cheapest out there, but is very, very well built.

    It was recommended to me as I have a car that not many seat fit a 11 qashqai , but when rear facing its very hard to put child in and out the car as the straps are in the way , so as soon my baby turned 15 months I moved her forward facing which is not what I wanted , I wanted to leave her rear as much as possible , now forward facing , she manages to remove her arms from the straps even when it’s very tight , who ever it’s on the front seat needs to move forward otherwise she can’t have her legs down and there’s no much space , but in my mothers car fits well , so I guess it depends what car you have for the comfort of the child

    Good looking, comfy and safety car seat. I'm using this since my daughter was born (nearly two years ago) and fits to many models of cars. Only minus is fabric, unfortunately is not the best quality but ok.

    Bought this with no idea what we were after and it's great! Perfect for newborn as comes with the newborn insert, can have rear facing for ages! When forward facing the seat still reclines and has plenty of room in it, my only question is could the straps move more? Great value for money as only £80 when purchased, lb is now 15 months and still fantastic!

    Once strapped into a vehicle it's great and sturdy and I know my young one is safe but getting it in and out of vehicles is just awful, it also doesn't fit in minibuse seats and the seat belt doesn't attach properly with or without the seat belt extension.

    Both of my children have had one of these seats, my daughter had it from about a year old and my son had it from newborn. Both found it very comfortable, headrest makes teeny baby feel very secure and snuggled in, he always went straight to sleep. My daughter loved that she was high up enough to see out of the window but cosy enough to fall asleep when she needed to.
    The recline option is great as you never have lolling heads!

    Love this product I have used the same product for all four of my children and its so easy to use. Its Suitable from birth faces both ways.
    Easy to use safety hardness which is great as the straps can be extended to make it easier to put the child in and then a pull strap to tighten. It has a comfortable padded seat and is easy to fit and also has step by step instructions.

    In my experience this car seat has always been great usage to me and still is, I would highly recommend this car seat if your children's safety is your main top priority as you will be guaranteed 100% safety for your child if you ever happened to be in an accident or if you was to brake immediately.
    The security of this car seat would guarantee your baby will come to no harm to minor injuries thanks to the security.

    We bought thus seat our second child. It came with insert for newborn but we our baby was too big. It's very comfortable and it's very easy to recline when your child falls asleep. The cover comes off easily for washing also. My other child is now using the seat and he never complains about being uncomfortable.
    The only down side is that it is a bit bulky and it's a bit of stutter to adjust the straps.

    This car seat is amazing. My 7 month old didn’t like her original one that she had from birth, so we thought we’d get her one that was more comfortable and bigger. From the first moment she sat in it she’s loved it. Sleeping on long journeys and no crying from being uncomfortable/ restricted. Would definitely recommend this car seat to any new parents/ parents to be as it’s our number one choice
