Favorite carseat
May 28, 2023
I have always used Graco carseats for my kids and decided to try this one when I had to purchase a new one for my daughter. Plus, a sale was going on and I am SOO glad I did. This carseat is heavier, but I actually love that because it makes me feel my baby is 10

Great car seat!
May 5, 2023
Highly recommend! We are really happy with our decision to purchase this car seat (we actually bought one for each car). It scored extremely well on Consumer Reports and Albee Baby had the best price. Albee Baby was great with communication from start to finish! My daughter loves riding in her new big girl car seat and we will definitely be purchasing more products from Albee!

Best seat ever!
April 22, 2023
I absolutely love this carseat. This is the second seat we bought of this model. We wanted a second one for the other vehicle that we had. I have been using this model since my baby got out of the infant carrier. She is six now, and petite. I am very big with carseat safety and 5 point harness wearing. She loves this seat and won't sit in any other. She is very, very comfortable in it. She naps very well in it as well. This seat has excellent comfort and protection which is why I chose it. The steel bars and side protection is what caught my eyes first. It is good in all temperatures as well. Straps never twist and are very easy to buckle. It offeres great recline, With the simple zip feature, it is also very easy to clean. Definitely, recommend this seat.

Easy Zip is MUST
April 10, 2023
I'm so glad I took a risk for this car seat. A lot of reviews said the "sides" were higher than most convertibles so it was a bit harder to get baby in and out. We have a large SUV with running boards so I don't feel like it's an issue. I do love the easy zip feature. I have never had car sick children but this time we've had two large instances and the easy zip feature is a breeze! I also love that it coordinates with big sisters MyFit!
  • Easy Zip Feature

  • Sides are a bit higher and may be an issue for some

Zip off fabric for the win

The zip off fabric was the selling factor for me, and it’s the best! So easy to clean, and such a nice sturdy seat.

I was slightly nervous to order from Albee because I stumbled across it online and there wasn’t a whole lot of info on the company. The car seat was a great price and Way lower than a lot of competition on Black Friday, but I bit the bullet and so glad I did. The carseat was in great condition and I got it super fast, within a week. I did some research on mom groups which is why I decided to bite the bullet because I found good positive reviews from them through there.

Great Seats
July 11, 2022
We already had two of these seats for my daughter in each car, so when our son needed to move to a convertible, we got the same thing for him. I will say they are a little trickier to get kids in and out of due to the high sides, but that also makes me feel like my kids are more protected in the case of an accident.

Great seat!
May 31, 2022
I purchased Chicco for the safety ratings. It is roomy enough to be comfortable and snug enough to be safe. It is a heavy seat so probably not what you are looking for if you will be moving the seat between vehicles. I have other Chicco products and appreciate the quality. I love the zip off cover- no snaps or clips to fight or break.

This seat is perfect! It’s not too wide and allows me to fit 3 kids in my husbands truck. Super easy to install and easy to clean. Love that I don’t have to take the whole cover off to wash if it gets dirty. If you are thinking about getting a seat, buy this one!

Easy to wash cover!
April 28, 2022
I am keeping my son rear facing until 40 pounds. This seat is a great price and is really nice. The seat is super comfortable and easy to install. My son loves the drink holder on the side and I like that it is removable and easy to clean. The seat has click latch that can be used when facing forward or backwards, (the latches move to a new position.) The instructions felt intimidating for a minute but install is not bad at all. You just have to follow the level. The rear facing slight recline is great for a toddler who still sleeps in the car.
  • Super easy install. The cinching system makes the seat one with the car easily. You don?t have to be strong to really get this thing tied down.
  • I feel like the angle can actually cause a diaper to leak pee. I am going to try to adjust the seatbelt latch by the legs and see if that helps. We have had multiple diaper leaks in this seat and zero in the other brand seat we have.

Great chair
April 2, 2022
These car seats are ranked the best by consumer reports and Albee baby has the best prices. With two small kids, this was the 3rd chair we got.
  • Taking of the cover to wash it is a huge plus!!! I also like the padding around the belts. You don’t need more than one chair.
  • It’s a bit on the bulkier side.

Grandma Says
March 23, 2022
I was looking for a car seat that was comfortable, safe and easy to use. It is for my 11 mth old grandbabe. I wanted a seat with easy adjustable height and easy harness tightening and harness release for me. For baby, I wanted comfort and safety. The seat is rated number 1 in Consumer Reports which is reassuring. The NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat meets my needs for ease of use. Some reviews talked about how heavy and bulky it is. It weighs 25.1 lbs, and it's not a click seat. Click seats with a baby seem way heavier to me, especially at 11 mths! I like carrying the grandbabe out to car, sitting or standing her on auto seat, lifting her into the car seat, and easily securing the harness. It's so much easier on my back! I would recommend reading the directions and then watching a video. In the printed directions, they mention to install infant seat directly to seat not on blanket or foam, which is not mentioned in the video. Also, it is easiest to secure baby car seat to auto seat pushing down on baby seat UNDER the cover than with cover zipped. That tip was shown in a video demonstrating rear facing installation with lap shoulder belt, on You Tube. The last thing I would recommend is to thoroughly examine, read directions and watch video before installation in car not on the fly with an infant present. Wait until babe is sleeping at night or napping. Especially in the case of removing the seat cover to wash after a mess.
  • 1. Safety- Consumer Reports ranked #1
  • 2. Comfort
  • 3. Ease of use height adjustment, ease of use harness tightening and ease of use harness release.
  • 4. Washable seat cover
  • Trying to install by just reading directions. Much easier to install by reading both the appropriate directions and watching appropriate video.

Car Sick Child
March 6, 2022
Do not buy if you have a child that gets car sick a lot. It’s the absolute worst to clean!!! I thought our last expensive car seat was horrible to clean so we upgraded to this… horrible idea! Yes the cover comes off easily, but not any easier than any other car seat. Puke gets stuck in every tiny crevice and the straps are impossible to remove and clean. It’s an absolute nightmare. I’ve cleaned it the best I could and it still smells bad.

Good product, great seller!
December 9, 2021
The whole experience with the seller was great. Good communication, fast shipping, product came new in an undamaged package. The seat looks OK, my son feels comfortable. I feel that the belting mechanism could work easier (it is hard to click between his legs). But the zipper seems to be a great solution, easy to zip and wash. Do not know about the air ventilation, as we are having a cold season now. The one thing I do not like is the design, looks really plastic and the colors are not nice. Looks like well-made but cheap fabric. But this is only my personal aesthetic opinion. Looks MUCH BETTER than the Britax car seat I was using before.- that one, after 2 times washed - looked terrible. This one looks much more solid! As for this price, with the zipper/washing option, this car seat is a really good choice.
  • - zipper/easy to wash
  • - spacious
  • - looks solid and clean
  • - cheap fabric
  • - not easy to click the belt

Love the zip!
November 2, 2021
Okay, I am normally such a HUGE penny pincher, but I splurged on this one and am soooooo glad I did! The zipper is SOOOOO worth the extra money! Kids are MESSY! It doesn't matter how many restrictions you have (no eating in the car, dust off before loading up at the park, etc) somehow they ALWAYS manage to make a mess of the seat...my daughter just threw up in her seat while we were taking the bigger kids to school this morning...it was SO EASY to just zip off the fabric and toss it in the wash! Normally I want to throw a seat away it is so difficult to clean after vomit, it seems impossible to get rid of the smell, but not with this one! You can't even tell it happened! I'm never buying a seat without a zip feature again!
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to install
  • Great transition from infant to booster
  • Lots of adjustments you can make so it'll fit just about any car!

Toddler upgrade Chicco #2
September 29, 2021
This seat is still pretty new to us. We started with a Chicco infant seat and stuck with them for the quality and high safety ratings. My husband said the install was easy, Chicco seats have clear instructions and levels built in. I bought the zip seat so cleaning will hopefully be a breeze. So far my little one has had some snacks in it that fell behind the cushion but it lifts easily to scoop those cheerios etc. out. The cup holder is a nice feature also.

I LOVE this carseat!! safety ratings are great- I can tell, very sturdy and cushion all around... very easy to install! and I like the colors, added bonus- matches my car interior....i decided to purchase a 2nd one for out other car. Also excited i can remove the cover and clean it. my infant car seat doesnt have that feature and i regret it....The car seat isn't too big, to still space for front seat to sit and space on either side of it. ( i have a small car- wv Jetta) also feels like the car seat is very comfortable- kid sleeps well in it...note- the car seat is very heavy, so it's not something i'm going to want to move around often. I don't think this is going to work for us if traveling via flights later on - i'll need to find an alternative, it's just way to heavy!

Comfortable and sturdy car seat

I purchased this new car seat for our growing baby. It was easy to install and baby looks stable in it. He sat comfortably and played with his toys during his first car ride in his new car seat. My car is compact sedan and my son is a tall baby. The car seat left enough room for the passenger seat as well. I didn't hesitate to choose Chicco again after using Chicco Keyfit 30 infant car seat. Highly recommended.

July 24, 2021
Love how easy to install this car seat is. The zip off padding is perfect for keeping clean from any messes. Car seat is comfortable for my little one but is a wider seat (be aware when placing multiples in a car). Can fit two of these seats comfortably in a full size SUV and extended cab pick up with room in between for a child to sit who doesn’t need to be in a car seat. Not enough room to fit the 3rd child between these seats in a compact SUV
