I have been very happy with this car seat. After hours of research I bought this for my son when he turned one. He is very comfortable in it. To adjust the shoulder straps you do not have to remove the straps from the seat. There are levers that you turn to lower or raise the straps. Then when the child grows out of the seat and is ready for a booster that part removes completely and can be used as the booster seat. It also comes with a detachable pillow for added comfort and a removable base so it fits in any car or truck. The only down fall to this car seat I have found is adjusting the straps. It can be a little hard on the hands but I find it is much easier if I reach between the front seats to pull the strap. I have more leverage this way. Over all this is a great car seat. It is well worth the money and will fit my child until he graduates from the booster seat. A much better value than some of the more expensive comparable car seats. I found this one to be made much more comfortable than the others which seem to have a very hard seat. It also received much better reviews on safety, comfort and value. I would recommend this seat to anyone and would definitely buy it again.

The Cosco Alpha Omega Elite is a nice car seat with neutral color combinations. This seat is very versitle with the options to start at 5 pounds in the rear facing position, and then transitions up all the way to 100 pounds. It has multiple reclining positions and multiple removable pieces to aid in making sure that your child fits snuggly and safely in the seat. You will get your money's worth out of this seat!

We found that in the rear facing position we had some difficulty fitting it correctly in small cars. Due to the large base size it extends farther forward in the rear facing position than other seats. If you are someone who sits with the front seats pushed back all the way this seat will most likely be too big.

The base itself is totally flat and in most cars the seats are at enough of an angle that you will need to add a towel underneath to have it fit as snuggly as possible.

The seat does have the latch system which is easy to use and move around.

We have been very happy with this seat, mostly because of its versatility in being able to use it instead of a second base early on and then being able to continue to use it as our son grows. This seat will get its full life in our family.

The seat does have a removable cup holder which is great as they get older.

It does take some time to disassemle in the event of needing to wash the cover. I would reccommend keeping the information booklet handy for assistance in putting in back together.

My baby and I just love our Alpha Omega Elite/ Luxe car seat

By

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

When I decided to buy a new car seat to my baby girl , she was 6 months old and weighting up to 20 pounds. I have receive a second hand reliable car seat, for her first months, however I was searching for a safe, comfortable and a little bit more girlie car seat for her.

  Once I I was looking for a product to accompany my daughter during  her first years I was decided to find an outstanding product . After a little bit of research online I found Alpha Omega Elite/Luxe Deluxe 3-in -1   the perfect car seat for my baby girl. It not just give my baby the space, security, and comfort she needed ,but it had  matching colors with our new car. Plus the quality materials and  durability, adjustable headrest, pillow, rotating armrests (up and down), cup holder,3 reclining positions and a wonderful owner's manual  to direct you in wherever set up you need including aircraft installation. It really made me  feel truly sure about my choice.
In the year of 2010 we had our baby boy, once he was grow out his infant car seat I got another Alpha Omega Elite /Luxe Deluxe 3-in -1 car seat. this time in darker motives.
The Alpha Omega Elite car seat is very sturdy and safe but maybe to some can be a little challenging to install face backwards .

Ease of Installation
Using the LATCH System or not it sits perfectly in a van at or in our Taurus sedan when facing forwards. I needed some more than LATCH system installing facing backwards.

Child's Comfort
My Children love every thing about it .

Support and Safety
We had a car accident early 2012 somebody hit the hear of our van. Our children didn't fell nothing either gave injuries and I thanks to God and the car seats Alpha Omega safety 1st

Ease of Use
I like the harness its a 5 point one , is not more difficult than the others and I like the fact that the children cannot open it so easily

Design
lots of different designs to chose from .

Durability
I have one seat for 5 years and other for 3 and want to buy new ones just because the car accident. but they still working very well

The last car seat you need

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3 in 1 convertible car seat is great. I brought three car seats for my son. After buying this car seat, I wish I knew better and brought it before. It is wonderful and comfortable. My son falls asleep every time he seats in it. It is very safe and strong. I also like the color. That way I can use it again if I have a daughter. I would save so much money.

Good seat for a good price

By 

from Newberg, OR

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

We got this seat when my son was about 3 months old. He hated the infant carrier seat, so we switched to the convertible seat quickly. He loved this one! It lasted until he moved to the high back booster seat about a year ago. This seat installs quickly, is comfortable, is easy to adjust as the child grows and has good safety ratings.

The Cosco Alpha Omega Convertible Car Seat is excellent!

By 

from 90048

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

I have 4 kids, 7 yrs - 7 ms old, and I have 4 Alpha Omega car seats. They are so versitile. They grow with my kids, and the harness easily adjust while your child is seated. So if they are wearing a winter coat when they get in, you can adjust it to fit properly, but if they want to take their coat off (when you have parked, of course), a simple adjustment and they are still harnessed safely. This is a great feature, some car seat harnesses can only be adjusted while your child is not in the seat; how is that helpful? The seats are relatively easy to clean, including washing the seat cover, (in the machine), and they are easy to secure safely in any vehicle I have owned. I have had other car seats that require so much exertion and time to install, and you are still left feeling like it isn't secure enough, but that is not the case with these seats. It really does save money overall to invest in a good car seat that you can use from birth to 8 years. I did, however, use an infant seat when each of my children was first born, and upgraded to the Cosco Alpha Omega Convertible Car Seat when they became too long for the infant carrier seat. A great purchase -- that's why I did it 4 times!

Can use it for a few years and has soft padding

By 

from Chico, CA

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

We have loved the Cosco Alpha Omega Elite ever since we bought it in two thousand eight for my first daughter when she turned one.  We bought it at a great price at Cosco and we are now using it for our second daughter. It is holding up great. The padding is still soft and we got the silver and black model which doesn't show stains or wear too bad.  There are two ways to harness the seat into your car. You can just slip the car's seat belt through the back, which is really easy if you have to put it in and out of the car all the time, or you can use the metal clips that clip into your seats down at the joint of the chair.  This can be difficult to do sometimes but easier if you lay the seat back first, loosen the belt, clip it in, then put the seat back up and tighten the belt it's not too hard to do.  One thing that can be a little irritating is that the seat belt can twist up in the front, just make sure that you untwist it so that it can do it's job!

Have purchased two, getting ready to purchase a third

By 

from Trinity, NC

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

When it was time for my daughter to ride in my Jeep, I bought the alpha-omega car seat, and I liked the fact that it would fit her from rear facing infant through toddler. When my son was born, and I needed a new car seat for him because my daughter was still in the alpha-omega, I bought a new alpha-omega. When both children outgrew their car seats, I donated them, but now that a new son is due, I find myself in the market again for a car seat, and again, I'm looking at a alpha-omega.

By far my favorite car seat!

By 

from Knoxville, TN

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

The Alpha Omega car seat is in my opinion the best seat out there and the only seat you'll need from infancy throughout the toddler years. It grows and changes right along with your child! After switching seats several times with my first daughter because we could not find an all encompassing one, I did a lot of research while expecting my second child. This car seat just kept coming up in my search efforts, and when I found it in the store so that I could really look at it and check it over, I knew I'd found the seat for us! It was easy to keep clean, super comfortable to my daughter, and well worth the price. It had built in newborn padding, which was easily removed to make room for a bigger infant, and then easily transformed into a booster. If you are into saving money and getting a big bang for your buck, this is the seat for you, as it's the only one you'll need to buy for a long time! The only con I found was that it was pretty big and a little hard to manage inside a little car, but even then just for the confidence I felt in her comfort and safety, it was still worth it. I would definitely recommend this seat!

fantastic!

By 

from Prospect, PA

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

The Cosco Alpha Omega Convertible Car Seat is fantastic! I have had it for 3 years now and it has been the best car seat. I got this carseat after we got into an accident and had to replace our previous carseat. My son was in a forward position already and he was able to use this up until he was 4 years old and we put him into a backless booster seat. We then gave this carseat to my younger daughter. We put her in this carseat right after she outgrew her infant one. We used it in the rear position then and have since moved it into the forward position. It is very easy to change positions and even easier to place the carseat into the car. This carseat has fit my kids as a young baby all the way through to preschool years. I love that you can adjust the straps from the front of the car seat. This makes it easy when the weather is in transitions so you can easily adjust the seat belt for a winter coat, jacket, or nothing. This has been the best car seat and hope to never have to buy another!

Fits Great!

By 

from River Grove, IL

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

The Alpha Omega Elite Nitron Convertible Car Seat is an excellent car seat for your child. It does fit in great, but you probably will struggle on buckling it in and out, depending on the vehicle that you are driving. Its size is very convenient, and the child in the car seat is always happy. The reason being is that it is so soft and comfortable, your child is probbaly not looking for anything more than this one. It is available in most stores and mostly online and the cost is very affordable, compared to the other car seats that can't do the same as this one. this car seat is not so heavy to carry, easy to store away for later use of course. When deciding on a new car seat, this is the one to go with, not only for the price, but easy to use. It always got the job done as for me, never really had any probalems with it so for first time users, this will be a very good experience, and also see how easy it is to use.

Excellent car seat makes me feel good about driving.

By 

from Unity, ME

Comments about Cosco Alpha Omega Elite 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat:

When I first got this seat, I was skeptical about it.  I wanted to make sure my baby would be comfortable and safe.  We had a seat for my first baby that was of poor quality, hard to buckle, and my first son simply hated it!  This seat is so much more well made, attractive, and functional.  It is easy to buckle, my child seems comfortable, and falls asleep immediately almost every time.  I don't have to listen to a very discontent, screaming baby anymore when I drive!  I plan to purchase this carseat for my sister who is pregnant with her first child, and recommend it to all my friends.  My husband is so much happier with this seat as well.  We no longer dread carrides and have actually taken my son for a ride just so he can fall asleep!  It works wonders.  The only thing I think would improve upon this product are more color options.  Other than that, this is a quality seat, an excellent buy for the price!
