Why buy anything else when you can put life's most priceless person in you life in a seat that is manufactured by a company that makes seats for cars that save life's of race car drivers going 200 mph??? Can't think of anything? Either can I. The quality, ease of use and safety features make this a must have brand for my family.
This seat was the most comfortable of all the seats that my six year old has gone through. We got this seat when he was four months old and had gotten too tall for his infant seat. He was VERY tall. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to rearface in this seat but about a year and we weren't ready to turn him around so we got another higher limit seat to keep him rearfacing longer. He wasn't as comfortable and no longer slept in the car. Once we turned him around we put him back in this seat and again he would sleep in the car. Unfortunately, he, again, outgrew this seat well before we were ready for a booster. The ONLY thing I would change about this seat is the height limits. But, to be fair, our son was REALLY tall from birth.
