this is a great carseat... used it from the day we took her home from the hospital. i actually have 2 and she was very tiny so this car seat was a better fit than the other one we had. i highly recommended this to everyone, especially if your baby is petite. It is very lightweight, and easy to use. plus the lining comes off easily for when you need to throw it in the wash. and it snaps right onto the stroller for your convience, especially when they're sleeping and you don't want to wake them up while taking them out of the car seat, just snap it on the stroller and go. it also has different adjustments so they can lie back or sit up... also has a snap in base which is very good when you are constantly taking them in and out of the car. plus it also has hooks to strap the car seat down if you need to switch cars and don't have the base handy. it was actually pretty inexpensive plus i found it on sale online so that was even better. it was a great buy, and worth the money!
