The 5-point harness can be adjusted to one of three positions so that the straps are even or a little below your child’s shoulders.
Has an EPS energy-absorbing foam, the seat has commendable side-impact and head protection to rely on.
The Baby Trend Infant Car Seat base is relatively easy to install – both by the LATCH and car seat belt.
The seat’s height, unlike others, can be adjusted with the push of a button, and quick adjustments can be made on the fly to accommodate your baby’s growth.

What reviewers didn't like
