Smooth (and safe) Ride
December 10, 2016
Overall, this stroller and car seat/base are awesome - we needed to replace our older set because they were out of date safety-wise. Our older set was a different brand, and I can remember from using a friends Chicco stroller with her infant, that I liked hers more when our first kids were babies. Since then, we've purchased other Chicco car seats for our older kids, because they have one of the best safety ratings, and it's easy to get gender-neutral products. PROS: - older siblings (3 + 5) were able to help putting together the stroller - safety rating - stroller has adjustable handle (husband is a foot taller than me, so he was especially pleased) - stroller seat easy to adjust seat recline (compared to my previous stroller, that had a strap you had to manually pull and try to get tight to adjust) - easy to access under the seat storage, and BIG storage space - stroller folds up easily and not too bulky when folded - would definitely fit in our Honda Civic trunk if needed - car seat comes with removable warm cover which is a great addition to a blanket for cold NE winters - car seat isn't too heavy, and latches in and out of base/stroller easily - base latches easily into our van (with seat buckle buttons to remove latch, rather than the hook kind that can be difficult to get back out), and fits next to our 3-year-old's car seat - great suspension on stroller - smoother ride than our previous stroller CONS: - stroller footrest is slightly more shallow, not sure that my kids will mind, but tested it on my 3-year-old and noticed that. - our local hospital (from previous experience) will not allow you to take your infant home with the seat belt cushions attached - they prefer seats to be free of any additional pieces. So, those will be great for when baby is bigger, but not when we first bring him/her home. - this may be logical (and we figured it out), but we didn't see instructions for how to attach the stroller hood, and it took us a few minutes to figure out where/how to attach it properly.
