After my caesarean, there was no way I would have been able to mess with the seatbelt every time we went out. This base did & still does make life so much easier as the base is secured by the seatbelt once & the car seat then just clicks in & off you go. The stand is adjustable, making the base suitable for most, if not all, cars. To me, it seems my Son is more secure when the base is used as the car seat is not likely to be moved by the seatbelt pulling on it.

This car seat is a great buy, it is inexpensive & seems to be very safe & comfortable. The newborn headrest insert ensures baby's head is nice & comfortable while they cannot hold their head up alone, it also gives them a little bit more insulation & helps to keep them warm. The seat also allows you to soothe your baby easily as it rocks. I would definitely recommend the car seat base (Graco Junior Baby Base) as this improves the safety as it is more secure & also allows you to just click the car seat in without faffing with the seatbelt every time.

Purchased at a great price, almost 50% cheaper than Mothercare - although please not to future buyers you need the adaptor, something reviews I have read seem to omit! If you have a very dinky (less that 6.5lbs) baby you should also buy an additional padded insert so the baby fits more snuggly and won't be so swamped by it!

The base is not suitable for newborns. Once the carseat is clicked into the base it is far too upright and leaves a newborn's head flopping about all over the place. The carseat also feels really unstable because the load leg just lifts off the floor and allows it to flop towards the rear of the car if you pull on the seat - which surely it would do in the event of a crash. The carseat strapped in alone seems much safer.

Got this because i was fed up fighting with seat belts when putting my newborn daughter in the car. What an improvement using this base is,once the base is fitted using the seatbelts its so easy to get the car seat in and out it just clicks into place and the release catch is so simple to operate. I would recommend this base to everyone.

The seat is good value for money and doesn't seem much different from the other more expensive brands. It is easy to secure with a seatbelt or using the base. The carry handle has 3 positions and the rocking bottom is useful for soothing the baby when you have to put them down somewhere. The seat is too heavy to carry any distance, but is fine as a car seat and carrying short distances. The only complaint is that when the baby is very small the head rest is too high up for it, even on the smallest position, so head support is poor. The seat also seems to be quite upright so when our baby was small her head tended to fall forwards and wasn't supported. After a few weeks this becomes less of a problem as your baby holds their head better but in the mean time you may need to put something else around the baby's head to support it. The seat seems fairly comfortable and the baby often falls asleep in it in the car. All in all it does the job.

bought it since i already had the Graco Mirage. found it cheapest on Toys r Us but that would have meant driving 75 miles. ultimately bought it from amazon along with the car seat base. that was the best decision as it simply allows the baby carrier to snap-in and lift off without struggling with the seat belt each time. The car seat is very comfortable for my little one and has a built in rocking base, but will not rock to-fro without constant effort. Also, the seat is quite heavy and not comfortable to be carried for even short distances. I always carry the stroller and clip the car seat onto that directly from the car seat base

This is a great base but only for when baby is able to hold their head. It makes the car seat a bit more upright than normal therefore when my baby was a newborn, her little head would wobble about.
I took it out the car then started using it again once she was 5/6 months. Now she is 9 months and it is fantastic as she is sat more upright and can look around & play happily.

After taking my new born daughter home from hospital in the Graco car seat with base we were a bit concerned that the seat seemed quite upright and tilted forwards. After a bit of messing about we decided that it must be safe as the level indicators on the side if the seat were correct. However after arriving home we found out 3 day old baby slumped in the seat with her head tilted completely forward! Thankfully she was fine but if we had gone any further than the 5 minute journey I dread to think what would have happened! After speaking to the supplier of this base we were advised that it does tilt very far forward and they don't recommend using the base until 3 months old!! No where on the literature does it state this! It says suitable from birth! We have gone back to just strapping the car seat in each journey which is what we wanted to avoid! Dangerous product!!
