Comment:
We purchased this Costco seat from BJs when it was on sale. Purchased this for my 60lb 4 year old. He loves the seat and his head is held in place when I drive. This was his seat after our $300+ Britax which we thought was worth the money. Cleanup is easy on this seat as well. All seat covers can be removed to clean up. One big downside is that it isn't latched in so the seat moves. Easily remedied by purchasing a strap for $8 at your local [...]. Strap the seat into your car seat latches its secured!
