We consulted The Car Seat Lady, Pediatrician Dr. Alisa Baer. She recommended Albee Baby(which we already knew and love, and shopped from before), and the Clek Foonf for our baby, and another child who are rear facing. We chose the Ten Year Blue color in the C- Zero fabric, but I failed to notice that there is one with white on back and one with black on back, and ordered the white ones. They are very pretty car seats, and the fabric is soft and seems to wipe clean so far. The fabric reminds me of Crypton. The seats are comfortable for my children, although they do sit higher in the vehicle car seats, which was a surprise to us.One definite plus to this, my children can see out of the window a whole lot better! We drive a Honda Odyssey van. The seats are heavy and very different from any other we have installed, however my husband watched the recommended videos and we had our consult with The Car Seat Lady, which was a lifesaver and worth every penny! The seats have a steel frame and I feel like my children are very safe in them. We also ordered the Q Tether per The Car Seat Lady's instructions. This is an additional accessory ordered directly from the Clek website, for $19.99, that limits rotation of the seat for Rear facing, and reduces head and neck forces by up to 50%! It adds about 3 seconds to getting the child in and out of the seat, yet I feel like the peace of mind and extra safety feature, is absolutely worth it.The anti rebound bar is also a very nice feature that adds an extra level of safety. The seat is extremely secure and not going anywhere, and no extra noise is heard as others have mentioned. I would highly recommend this seat and the Clek brand!
