    We have one, and it is brilliant, we can get her in and out and leave it all strapped in. We had to get one because she looked so uncomfortable in her infant carrier one, and she was always screaming in it! This one is higher up for her, and she can see more, and looks more comfy, she still screams but not as much!!! lol

    I like mine because it's rear-facing until 18 months, and seems sturdy and secure, it has great reviews.

    The only downsides are it's quite high, so might be difficult getting LO in and out of in rear-facing position in a small car - we have a toyato verso so not too much of an issue for us. The straps can be a little fiddly to adjust (I'm comparing to her maxi cosi cabriofix we had before). Also I've noticed her head lolls forward when she's asleep. It never happened in the maxi cosi, don't know if it's age or design of the britax, I'm going to get one of those neck supports for her.
