My daughter loves it it has enough padding
This has been a very good car seat for us. First - this is not a car seat that you move from car to car. It is heavy and bulky. It stays put, until I get the rare urge to clean under it. never would I take this carseat on a plane with me, it would never fit and it weighs more than my kids. With that being said, my kids like this seat a lot. They are very comfortable in it and prefer this seat to a cheaper seat that we have in our second car. I wish the cup holder was a little wider to hold wider sippy cups but we make due. I feel that my children are very safe in this seat and would recommend it.
We use the nautilus in both of our vehicles, we absolutely love this seat because of the sturdy steel frame. I was once tboned and thankful our seat was steel framed. So keep that in mind that other seats may not have that. Second i love the adjustments this seat has. Heighten the headrest, recline the bottom for a smaller toddler, and goes to booster and high back booster! Great seat for the $money.
What can i say about this car seat besides it is wonderful? It is stylish and the perfect car seat for my toddler. The best part about it is that it can grow with your child. So there is no need to purchase a bunch of different car seats as your child grows. The only thing I do not like about it is the bulkiness, which I guess i can chalk it up to being safer since it is a bigger size. It wouldn't fit in my fiances car, so we had to put it in our suv. It is very affordable and a great car seat. I will never choose another brand of car seat again. we love graco!
I have used this kind of car seat with my Two kids who are able to be in one. I love that it is comfortable for them and not too hot. The cup holder is nice and So convenient! I bought them in two different colors. Graco has always been a top brand for me when it comes to my kids , it's trusted !
I own this seat for both my five and a half year old son and for my almost 4 year old daughter. Other than the obvious weight/bulk issue with the seat, I have few complaints. It's a GREAT seat! My son is able to buckle and unbuckle himself (helpful for kindergarten drop off and pick up). I love the adjustable headrest height, and the high harnessed weight and height requirements. One of the models that I have required a screwdriver for adjusting the harness height, which I felt like was a pain, but the model with safety surround does not. The install is decently easy with both the latch system or the belt. The seat is very large and bulky, not ideal for air travel or switching vehicles (we ended up buying a second set for the Truck!)
We bought this seat for our son a few years ago. He was able to use it with the harness until he was a little over 5 and now it makes the perfect booster seat. He loves the little compartments it has and how comfortable it is.
When my then 2.5 year old was growing near the limits of her convertible seat I started searching for her next seat hoping to find something longer lasting than the previous one. What I love about the nautilus is that it should last her until she no longer needs a seat. I've heard some complaints about the seat not lasting for the harness part but my 3 year old is small so I'm hoping this isn't the case with her. The harness weight and limit are very high and should last her until she is booster ready. I like that the seat transitions to a high back and then no back booster. As long as the seat doesn't expire we are all set. My only con to the seat is that there are not very many color or pattern choices and they seem very plain to me. That's not really a huge problem but I've seen some really cute patterns on other seats. I like the fact that it has made in cup holders as well. Overall, I feel like the price of the seat and how long it will last us was a really good investment. The seat isn't super pricey and hopefully will be our last car seat purchase for her. I will recommend this seat to any family or friends who are parents of toddlers.
When my second child came along 10 years after my first daughter, I felt like I didnt have to stress over every tiny detail, but when it come to my daughters car seat, I put a great deal of time into researching which one would be the best for my child. The Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat was my top pick, considering the time frame I would use it. My middle child was 15 months old when I bought this car seat, and it was a huge difference from the one she was previously in. It was as if she went from an average seat, to a top of the line luxury car seat. It feels good to know that she's safe, but also very comfortable. No longer does her head tilt forward in an awkward uncomfortable position if she falls asleep, this seat reclines, and the headrest can be adjusted. Buckling her in is super easy, and the straps are easily adjusted. She loves her very own cup holder and often asks to put stuff in the side storage space. Now the features are nice, the reason I bought it was the length of time she can use it. Once she reaches the booster seat stage, this carseat can adjust to a high back booster at 30 lbs then a backless booster seat when she gets older, or reaches the weight requirement. In the long run I am saving money, and I feel like my daughter is safe plus comfortable. I ended up buying a second one to put in my husbands truck, it was a too difficult to transfer this seat when she rides with him. Overall this is the best and safest car seat I have owned, and it's cheaper in the long run.
