EliteCarSeats generously sent me The First Years C630 Car Seat to review. I chose the Cappuccino Design (pictured). First off I really like the look of this car seat. It looks nice especially since we have tan leather seats in one of our cars. It is a little on the big side but that makes it very nice so your child will fit comfortably as they grow bigger. When my husband installed it he said he was impressed by how sturdy it feels and how easy it was to install. I have also installed it and I agree it is really fast and easy. You thread the seat belt through and then lock it into place by lifting the cover (that sits behind your child). Then there is a latch at the top that you can hook to the bar (in newer cars). I have taken it in and out a couple of times (to give to the babysitter) and it is really fast and easy to do. Huge plus because easy installation means less chance of improper installation. It weighs about 21 lbs. so it isn’t a pain to carry it from one car to another. The straps adjust really easily so adjusting for growth is a snap. I like all the padding it seems like a very nice ride (but I haven’t taken a ride in it! LOL!). Bug loves his new car seat and says it is soft. It is so nice that it is convertible, I like the idea of buying one car seat that will last for a really long time. And the best part about how it is convertible is that it has a removable headrest, so when you are using it as a rear facing infant seat it fits so much better than other convertible car seats. This is a Great Car Seat. Check out all the Fabulous Features below!
