Chicco does it again
July 2, 2013
We had the keyfit 30 made by chicco, and my little one could've stayed in it for a couple more months- but I was anxious to get his next seat. We chose to stick to the recommendations to ERF for at least 2 yrs, and we are loving this seat. We also have a Graco size 4 me 70 in my husbands vehicle, but I was having difficulty buckling that one without it installed. I loved our keyfit so I gave into the price of the nextfit, and it was totally worth it. My little one loves the ride, usually in a carseat LO is sweating- but this one he's comfortable. He's a 13 months and on the shorter side of things, but is able to reach his cupholder, and he loves that. We love that its another easy install, and we know and feel confident we have him correctly installed without seeing a tech. The buckles are easy to work, the only trouble we have are with the shoulder pads. You can't remove them and since my LO is on the smaller side it took some figuring out to get his straps tight enough, but now that we've had it for a month and used it, they are easy to work. Love this seat. (Hubby also loves the graco if you're wondering) But Chicco is totally worth the $$!
ProsWill allow you to use this seat for a long time because of its bigger shell and weight limit. Plus you can keep the little one safer rear facing as long as possible. It's super easy to install.
ConsShoulder pads/straps don't remove, they are a bit big and bulky and a bit difficult to work around AT FIRST.
