There are both pros and cons about it, but overall, I love this car seat, because what it boils down to is the safety of the child, and I feel like this car seat does the job. Pros: Our baby boy seems very comfortable in it (he falls asleep every time!) and it seems very well made, safe and secure. Once the base is in, it's really easy to get the seat into and out of the car, and of course the click feature is very reassuring to know that it is installed properly. I also love the star pattern I chose and the seat itself just looks nice. Cons: The button to loosen the straps is difficult to locate. It is beneath the seat and the strap goes over it and there are a few openings in the same area, so finding it, especially if there is a crying baby waiting for you, is not enjoyable. The other con (though I suppose this could be said about every Graco car seat) is that getting the base out of the vehicle is very difficult. I think this could be due to the fact that my husband installs it and when I try to uninstall it, it is simply too tight for me to push the button hard enough and pull the belt loose at the same time. I have to make him get it for me each time, but at least I know it is good and tight! Even with the cons, I don't think I would choose a different seat over this one. I love it and it is baby approved!
