This car seat is excellent, i can not praise it enough.
This is my third child and the car seat for the other two had given up the ghost, so a new one was required for baby no.3. Whilst doing research on the best car seats around etc, I eventually honed in on the weight of the actual car seat as a big issue. As I would have a 3 and half year old with road sense but an unruly by then 2 year old with absolutely no road sense to keep a hold of whilst out and about dropping off elder one to nursery, baby in whatever car seat needed to be lightweight!
I think this is the second lightest car seat on the market as there is the Maxi - Cosi Citi which apparently weighs less than the Cabriofix. However, no one in and around the Nottingham area was willing to order the Citi into a store for me to compare alongside the Cabriofix. I spent many a day trawling over car seats, comparing the weight of the seat to the comfort for the baby and the Cabriofix won hands down. Other car seats were heavier and not as comfy for a newborn and then also give enough room for a growing baby.
It looks lovely and snug and my little son always seems as snug as a bug in a rug whilst in it and he drifts off to sleep when the car gets going.
Well worth the money for your little one.
