I've used this car seat for all three of my kids and have been very happy with it. I originally bought it because it was well-priced and it was a neutral color. I also liked that it had a 5-point harness and that it could face either backwards or forwards. It worked great to put my kids in this before they turned one (and still had to face backwards) and after they got too big to carry around in their car seat/carrier. It was also nice that I didn't have to buy two separate car seats for that transition time. They can go straight from this car seat into a booster. The cover doesn't detach from the car seat though so I can't just throw it in the washing machine when it gets dirty... that's a bit of a pain. The buckles seem a little complicated at first, but they're really easy once you get the hang of them. I also like that my baby can't get out of it by herself. Overall, this is a great car seat and is a great investment if you plan on using it for more than one child.
