Perfect carseat: Lightweight & parent-friendly!
August 30, 2015
The SnugRide has been a wonderful car seat to review. While I received this car seat for free, all thoughts and opinions are my own. TheSnugRude features a great print for boys and girls - it's fashionable without being too trendy, so it's sure to look good for years to come. The padding and seat cushions are extremely easy to wipe down and clean in the case of a diaper blow out or spit up accident. That also means the car seat looks nicer for a longer period of time. Those same cushions are actually very cool and don't make my baby sweat nearly as much as other car seats that I've owned, so it's been great for my summer baby. The no-rethread harness is a FABULOUS addition to the car seat, because as fast as babies grow, it means less work for me as a parent to adjust. I simply find the bright red buttons in the back of the seat and slide to adjust. The car seat base has a strap tightener for really snug installation, which I really like. I just wish it had "seatbelt" type LATCH clips to make moving the base in and out easier. I was impressed with the size of the seat in my small Jeep Patriot - there is still plenty of room to move the drivers seat back so my husband (taller!) can drive. The SnugRide is a very light car seat - That makes it easy to lift in and out, even with a big baby in it, but the seat is rated for babies as small as 4 lbs, which is really impressive. Our family also has a Graco Click Connect jogging stroller and the SnugRide car seat fits perfectly into the stroller with a simple click. Removing the seat from the stroller is also a breeze, as it's the same handle to remove the car seat from the base. Getting back to walking with an infant is a breeze with this car seat clicking into a stroller! I'm really enjoying the smaller shape of the car seat crotch buckle - it's a compact design so very young newborns with frog legs don't get poked - a small thing to notice, but we care about it! Lastly, the level installation meter is easy to read and adjust - important for proper car seat installation. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this car seat to a set of parents for their new baby. It boasts top safety features, a cute gender neutral design, parent-friendly design and comfort for baby. A+ all around.
