     My husband and I purchased the Safety First Designer carseat before our second child was born.  We like the neutral colors, just in case we decided to have baby number three, we'll keep it around.  This product is very durable.  We've had it five months now, and after many spit ups and spills, I have washed the cover several times.  You cannot see any fading and the stains always come out.  The foam underneath is very comfortable and soft.  Babies grow fast, so it didn't take long until we had to move the harness restrainst up to the second hole.  There are five altogether, so it should grow with her for a while.

     The Safety First Designer Car Seat has a sturdy head support.  Some carseats offer a whimpy head support that doesn't really serve the purpose.  Overall, this carseat is easy to carry and put into the base.  It is economical compared to other similar products.  I definitely recommend this product!

I have a Graco in my car and on in my husband's car.  My mom bought this Safety 1st for her car.  When I compare it to my Gracos, I have the following to say: 1. Very hard to get in and out of the car. All I have to do with the Graco is plop it in the base and wiggle it around a little and it clips right in. The Safety 1st has to be set just right. It takes a couple of tries every time and with a heavy baby weighing it down it can be quite hard on the back.  2. The Gracos fit my Jeep jogger stroller.  The Safety 1st doesn't.  It doesn't even fit my regular Graco stroller either.  The bottom of it is made very differently. 3. The head support is shaped odd around the shoulders. I had to take it out and then his head flopped around. I had to put in a blanket to give his head support. 4. Flimsy frame. Yes, my Gracos are heavier, but that just means they would stand up in a wreck much better. 5. No cushion.  We had to put a fleece blanket between the cloth cover and the plastic frame because it is so hard for him to sit on.  6.  The cloth cover.  Because it is cloth, you have to take it off and wash it if it gets dirty, and that is a pain!  My Gracos are not cloth.  Still very comfy and all I have to do is wipe them clean and can leave the cover on.

If you didn't get the hint... GET A GRACO!

so far so good

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

My wife and I are very budget conscious, so when we saw this car seat on sale at costco, we decided that this was going to be the best car seat for our first child, and hopefully we would be able to use it for our future children.  We have not had any major problems yet, however when you go lock the car seat into position in its base in the car, you need to make sure it is locked in, because although you may hear a click, that doesn't necessarily mean that the car seat is locked in, which I am glad I figured out before an accident happened.  Our car seat also came with a matching stroller which was a really good thing.  We use the stroller all the time and it has held up really well, one thing that could have been improved would be the number of compartments for the stroller, which is no big deal.  With the car seat, I wish it would have come with the handle that is configured differently to make easier to hold.

it is cute and comfortable for the babies

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

i have twins and the i have both disney infant car seats they are both different designs but they are pooh bear i like to use these certain car seats because they are  easy to adjust and to hook up in the vehichle. i also like this brand so when they get them dirty they are easy to take apart and wash. i like them also because they can just snap into the stroller so i dont have to take the babies out. the car seats are kept attract of if there is a recall on them or any other disney product you have got the company will let you rite away. i also like the design they use on the  carseats because they can be used for either a boy or a girl. i have one of the car seats from my first child and it is still good as new so i like the good durability they have.. and one other thing is that they are well worht the money spent on them. i think the disney carseats are something i would reccommend for all my family and friends that i know to use.

This is the best car seat for infant's that I have found, so far

By 

from Saginaw, MI

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

The item is a Safety 1st Disney infant cat seat. I found this car seat to be one of the best for what I was looking for. I wanted a car seat that go for either a boy or girl, but was still stylish. The car seat that I have is just that. If I decide to have another child I will most likely buy another Safety 1st Disney infant car seat for that baby also.

Its great, it goes in and out of the car in a snap.

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

Safety First is the way to go.

Safety First is the best car seat I have ever used.  The one that I bought a little over a  year ago for my second child is still in great shape.  I  am now using it for my third child.  IT is a breeze dissemble, clean and re assemble.  This car seat has a cute Winnie the Pooh design with great colors.  That could be for a boy or a girl.

l love that it came with a base that you can keep in the car, It really just goes in and comes out in a snap.  Also, if you happen to forget the base the car seat will still properly install in the car.  This car seat will also just snap right into a shopping cart and stroller.

Overall, Safely First is the brand of car seat I would recommend to everyone that I know.  Weather your a first time mom or not were all concerned about our childs safety and well being.  SO, if your ever unsure about which brand to use go for the one that says it all in the name, Safety First.

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

I am a single mother of 2 children my children have all ways ben safe in the car seats that this company has provided. i would recomend this brand name to all parents who want a safe and low cost car seat for there children. if you are a safe driver and want your child to be safe other than your driving i recomend that you check this brand out. Rember even though this brand is a safe brand you also have to drive safe and follow the directiond stated on the label.

Comfy seat, soft and plush. Annoying to snap into base & buckle

By 

from Allegan, MI

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

This seat is very comfy, soft and plush.  The material is so soft I wish I could sit in it! I'm not worried about the safety at all.  I know that all seats must meet safety regulations, so I know my baby is safe in it.   The only things that annoy me about the seat: the buckle is a bit of a pain to buckle.  The top is easy enough, but the bottom has to be together and then snap in place. You can't do one side at a time.  Its very easy to adjust the straps though, and removing the straps (to adjust the seat or clean the seat) is very easy as well.  It can be a bit difficult to snap the seat into the base though.  I have to double check each time I put the seat on the base, and often, it hasn't locked in on one side. I'm always worried that the loud click and jolt from snapping it in will wake the baby, although it hasn't happened yet.  The price was right, and for what we paid, it was well worth it though.  I don't plan on having any more children, and will probably only use this seat for 6 months before swtiching to a convertible seat, but if I were planning on having more children (and re-using the seat), I would get a Graco infant seat.  I had a Graco seat for my older children and it was much easier to click onto the base and strap baby in and out.

Beautiful seat, great price, and superb quality!

By 

from Clinton, MD

Comments about Safety 1st Designer Infant Car Seat:

We bought this seat when we found out that we were expecting a girl, because we wanted something girly! :) We have been very pleased with our purchase and would highly recommend theseat to anyone! The price is simply unbeatable - without sacrificing style, comfort, or quality! I loved the soft fabric that is used on the inside of the seat - made me feel much better on that first ride home from the hospital! :) The padding was perfect and I found the seat to be surprisingly easy to clean. It is also fairly simple to take apart for machine washing in the event of a spill or leak. :) I felt that the seat was very easy to install and not too bulky, though the heavier the baby gets, the heavier the seat gets to carry. :) I *would* have liked for the shade to be a *tiny* bit sturdier. The plastic bands seemed to be more bendable than I like, but still managed to hold up well and didn't cause any problems. I would definitely buy this seat if I had it to do over again.
