My baby is currently using this seat, even though it's a really nice looking seat and I can only assume it's just as highly rated safety wise as the other Chicco seats, it does have a flaw in my opinion. I don't think it's very comfortable for a child under the age of four or five months, the seat is "sinks in" more than other seats (I hope that makes sense), making the baby just look too "squashed", somewhat bent, it's difficult to explain, the baby just does not look right. The angle at which the baby sits just seams too uncomfortable, it's much too deep, my baby is not happy in it unfortunately. This is not my first baby, I've used two different infant seats in the past, both different brands, and this was not an issue with either. We choose the Fit2 seat for the nice material, the country it's made in, the Euro lap system (which is great when installing the seat without the base), the Chicco safety ratings, the fact that it can be used a bit longer (age and height wise) than other seats, but we now don't think it was a good investment. We are now in the market for a new infant seat, we could buy a convertible but sometimes it can be more convenient to just remove the car seat with the baby in it, convertibles do not offer that ease. I have gone to baby stores to try other seats with my baby, and the difference in the angle at which the baby sits is obviously more comfortable, baby has more of a lay down position in the other seats than in the Fit2. I would assume the seat was made deeper than others in the market to accommodate a heavier and taller child, but as great as that sounds, to us it just turned into an extra expense. We've had the seat two months and are getting a different one so our my child's car ride is less stressful and less uncomfortable, I can't stand seeing the baby in the seat any more. It's a shame, the Fit2 seat is really nice, but it was not for us.
