Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite Car Seat
Good price, lots of features, a little big
The features offered in this car seat are definitely worth the price point. We kept it rear-facing for safety reasons but found it very hard to fit in the back seat of our small 5-seat vehicle. It is very tall, and in order to be at the angle required for rear-facing, it needed to be in the centre of the back seat so that it could squeeze slightly between the two front seats. The arm rests have been great and the head rest makes it comfortable for the child to fall asleep and not have their head hanging off to the side

I love this car seat it matches the interior of my vehicle. I have it in the rear facing position in my suv with no problem plus two other kids in the back they complained about the last seat because they couldn't Get there belt on but not with this one. My son use to hate it in his other seat but this seat is way more comfortable for him. He sleeps more and less fussing in it, so overall it was a great buy.

Great car seat for forward facing toddlers
I bought this car seat for my 16 month old daughter, because she had finally outgrown her bucket seat. I like that the seat has many safety features and is very comfortable. It is a sturdy seat and I feel safe having her in it. It was easy to install and it looks like she will be able to use it for a long time. The price was right and I really do think that this was a good purchase! Now the negatives: I do not see how anyone could use this seat for a stage one rear facing car seat.. It is so big and bulky and I doubt we would be able to fit it behind the passengar seat facing backwards. I liked that my bucket seat was so portable.. I could keep her in it and carry her into the house. There is no way that would be an option in this car, as there is no handle. So yes, this is a great car seat for forward facing, but I would stick with a regular bucket seat for under 22 lbs.

Worth the Money
I love this seat, it is easy enough to transfer between cars, and it is easy to get my son in and out of, even when he is sleeping, my only complaint is that it takes up alot of space in the rear facing position, especially if you have a smaller car (i drive a neon majority of the time) and it has to go in the middle seat if you want to use the front seats. But other than the space issue it was easy to install and adjust.

Fabulous car seat!
This is the only seat you will need for your child. We had bought a less expensive two in one seat, thinking that all seats were the same (they are not, we learned this the hard way). It has a proper recline and support when rear facing for small children, and had excellent support for forward facing and converts into a booster seat . The seat's recline is extremely easy to use and locks into place properly and safely (no need to use towels etc) as the base is excellent (just pull on the red handle and you have 3 recline options). The seat is properly padded with EPP foam and the adjustable head rest makes getting the correct strap height for your child much easier than models that you have to thread yourself. The head rest had proper support for the child when they are sleeping. Love this car seat, spend the extra money on this seat versus the "cheaper models" you'll be much happier with the quality and comfort for your child (we are!!).
