Practically perfect for first child
April 12, 2018
I love the convenience of this travel system, but 22 months later its looking pretty tired and is almost too heavy for me to get into/out of the car (6 months pregnant with our second). Initially I found it to be pretty lightweight and manageable because I had not installed the actual stroller seat. Instead, I was using the base with the infant car seat. As soon as my daughter was big enough for the stroller, I installed the stroller seat. While it's nice to have the option to click the infant seat into the stroller with the stroller seat installed it seems almost pointless to do this when still using the infant seat because it adds to the bulkiness and weight. I wish I had thought ahead and purchased something that would allow the use of the stroller seat and the infant seat at the same time. The stroller itself is just ok, I've found the plastic clip that holds the stroller closed when folded isn't really doing its job anymore and the wheels do get a little squeaky randomly. The design with the wider back wheels is a little annoying only because I'm a klutz and constantly bumping walls and people (sorry) with them. Also, the strap protectors are not very padded, slipped off the second I took my daughter out of the stroller and were never seen again. However, I'm a huge fan of the infant car seat. It is pretty easy to adjust and clean. I have taken it apart several times and thrown the cover into the wash. I have noticed that sometimes the straps twist/ fold at the buckle which is causing some fraying. If they can be replaced, I'll probably do so before my second arrives. The click connect base is easy to use, just remember to change the position of the handle from behind the head to all the way up before trying to take the infant car seat out of it or it becomes a struggle. Over all, I've been really happy with this product and have even taken it with me on a trip via airplane.
