Comfortable seat for long rides
August 7, 2018
Making the switch from an infant car seat to a convertible car seat can be stressful, especially since you will be committing to a convertible car seat for much longer. However, giving up the conveniences of the light-weight and portable infant seat went much more smoothly than I thought. From the beginning, I was pleasantly surprised to find the Evenflo Every Stage to be lighter and less bulky than I thought. I'm only 5'0" and 100 pounds, and I had no issue carrying it to my car for installation. I've never been too good at following instructions for car seat installation. By watching a few videos, it was actually no trouble at all and my husband was impressed upon his "double-check" safety inspection.
My 8 month old looked TINY at first in the car seat, but after a 130 mile short weekend roadtrip, I could tell right away that she preferred this seat to her infant seat. The padded head cushions looked so comfortable, and her legs no longer dangled over the edge. I always felt a little nervous about the slight jiggle our old infant car seat base, and the tight fit of this car seat greatly eases this mama. Adjusting the settings for her size was done with ease, although I cannot speak for the other positions as we have not yet used it.
Overall, the sturdy design, ease of use, and ability to use up to 120 pounds makes this car seat a keeper. In fact, once we fully retired the infant seat in my husband's car, we are definitely going to get another Evenflo EveryStage.
