Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

They have awesome side-impact protection from the unique shape of the headrest. And this isn’t just for the two rear facing and forward facing modes. It’s also for the booster mode.
The Safety 1st Grow and Go 3-in-1 Car Seat has a lot of great features: it offers a plush, comfy ride for kids, has machine-washable covers and is one of the lighter car seats on the market, making installation a little less laborious
You can easily adjust the harness and headrest in one step, and built-in harness holders keep annoying straps from getting in the way when you’re trying to pull your little one out of the car seat.
Safety 1st also clearly has some parents on its design board, because it makes a point of including two harness holders on each side that hold the harness in place to help you buckle in even the most resistant of toddlers.
This 3-in-1 car seat has three reclining positions to help ensure a proper fit in your car, and it comes with a QuickFit harness that lets you adjust the harness and headrest in one easy step.
And when placed in the rear-facing position, the Grow and Go car seat takes less space. Parents are sure to enjoy the extra 7 inches of legroom in the front.
Cleanup is made effortless with a removable machine-washable seat pad that can be taken off without removing the harness.

What reviewers didn't like

Bulky in back seat, especially when reclined
The only downside to this car seat is installation. Unfortunately, it’s not one of the easiest car seats to install, and you may have to check videos on how to do it.
Harness straps are hard to tighten and adjust for newborns
