  • Worked fine Sep 08, 2019

  • Great car seat super light weight and has an adjustable base to get the right incline angle in the car. Easy instal and super easy to clean also can be bought as a travel system Jul 06, 2019

  • Used for both babies and found it very easy to use. I liked the triangle handle. Some say it doesn't fit newborns well but mine were both over 8lbs and didn't have any problems. Puzzle style buckle. Mar 17, 2019

    This car seat seems to be a tad smaller than other infant car seats. I ended up buying a bigger different one when my daughter looked squished at about 6 months. Triangle handle hard to hold. Jan 17, 2019

  • I don't hate this carseat. It works as intended and I feel like my infant is very safe in it. The only thing I absolutely hate about Baby Trend is that their products are not compatible to others. Jul 13, 2018

  • This care seat is the one to have! It is simple to clean and adjust. The base is also easy to adjust to the perfect level for any vehicle! I would definitely recommend this product. Jun 05, 2018

  • The bottom buckle is odd as you've got to have both pieces together to fasten it. The handle is neat because it gives you 3 different places to hold. Apr 28, 2018

  • Great car seat for any infant Apr 27, 2018

  • This is a good car seat. Not the best, but does the job. The fabric is nice and soft. Mar 21, 2018

  • I had this seat with my first, didn't like it. The chest clip broke just from my toddler playing with it (no car accident). And the straps started to not tighten evenly, no matter what I tried. Feb 16, 2018

  • Super hard to get the seatbelt and latch system through the base hard to adjust Dec 22, 2017

  • I don't love the way it fastens at the bottom both straps have to hook at the same time but love the handle! Oct 19, 2017

  • We bought this because it was one of the more inexpensive seats, but it was pretty difficult to get the angle right and be sure it was installed correctly. Oct 19, 2017

  • I bought this 5 months ago to fit in our double stroller and love it. Oct 18, 2017

  • Love the handle it makes it easier to carry, but it is a little heavy than some other ones. Oct 07, 2017

    Bought this seat with my oldest son and we loved it. the handle on it was so comfy and the foot warmer was great because my son was born in the fall/winter time. May 11, 2017

  • Good seat but not good for small babies. Mar 12, 2017

  • I loved this carseat Mar 06, 2017

  • This seat is awful. The lowest harness level is too tall to correctly fit most newborns. The straps are always giving me issues and the plastic buckle is a pain. The crotch strap is impossible to move Jan 06, 2017

    Straps have to be retightened each time baby is put in and the handle is very hard to move. Does its job. Oct 04, 2016

    I haven't been able to use this yet however just from opening the box I love it already. The car-seat is plush almost like memory foam and its super light. I debated buying this but don't regret it! Sep 01, 2016

  • never used the carseat but i like the cover that comes with it used it on my other carseat its hard to put the straps back on when you clean it the handle would be nice to hang toys hate the base Jun 06, 2016

  • I like it but it is too tsmall for my 9 month old. She seems uncomfortable! May 13, 2016

  • Great car seat. Got me through 2 kids. My 7 month old is using it now. Was great for bringing a preemie home. Feb 24, 2016

  • I really rather like my Baby Trend car seat. I can't remember which exact one I have, but it is a Flex Lock in the Catalina Ice pattern. It serves its purpose well for a good price Bought at Toys R Us Jan 29, 2016

  • The buttons to make the arm carrier go down ALWAYS gets stuck. The straps are always getting twisted and and never the same length when being tightened. The car seat is better for smaller babies. Jan 17, 2016

  • Nothing fancy. We love that the large canopy can move forward so it provides shade at any angle. Hubs loves the triangular handle, though I lack the upper body strength to hold any seat one-handed. Nov 28, 2015

  • Did what it needed to...keep a newborn safe but when you have a mobile lightweight baby with fully functioning moving arms, the shade can break off pretty quickly. Dec 04, 2014

  • Worst car seat ever! It does what it needs to do but they were hard to install in our cars (getting level) and they are cumbersome to snap together. DO NOT BUY! Oct 06, 2014

  • PLEASED WITH THE REVIEWS SO I PUT IT ON MY REGISTRY May 13, 2014
