"Safe but heavy and small…"
Overall I do like this seat because I like the reassurance of having my newborn in a completely flat car seat and Britax is a trustworthy brand. However, it is a very heavy carrycot, we had to install it in the car and leave it there. After a c-section there was no way I could carry the baby in this seat, but even my DH found it heavy for long term use. Also DS outgrew it by 4 months old. He is a tall baby but still that was very little use.Read moreLess
"Great for long journeys…"
I bought this as PIL live 250 miles away, and when we had DS1 visiting them was tricky as I wouldn't let him be in his car seat for more than 90 mins at a time (pfb). With this we could put DS2 in it and do the journey after the boys bed time without stopping.
A friend lent me some britax wheels to use with it which have been ace, as I can get DS2 out of the car and clip the seat into the wheels without waking him up. I'd really recommend getting wheels.
The only downside is it's relatively short, and DS2 us a bit of a bruiser, and practically too big for it already at 4 months. I'd still recommend it though.Read moreLess
"This was the very best purchase that we made for…"
This was the very best purchase that we made for our little one - it meant that she could sleep flat and comfortably in the car, we didn't have to disturb her getting out of the car, it attached straight onto the wheels and turned into a pram, we could complete long journeys in the car with ease, also easy to unclip on a train and put onto the seats again without disturbing baby. Very easy to install, ability to install in relatives cars with just carrying 2 small clips for the seatbelt. Everyone that saw this thought it was ingenious. Can't recommend it highly enough.Read moreLess

"DD looked so scrunched up in a car seat, but…"
DD looked so scrunched up in a car seat, but in the Baby-Safe Sleeper she could lay out flat and sleep peacefully. Made long journeys to visit distant family members much easier. The fact that it can be clipped into the frame was fantastic too. She spent many happy hours protected in her little cucoon.
The fabric was relatively easy to remove for cleaning and washed well, and we managed to reattach it without too many problems. You can get a rain cover for it too that zips down the middle to give quick access, which was handy on several occasions.
The Baby-Safe Sleeper is reassuringly sturdy, but also quite heavy, especially with a growing baby in it! It's not unmanagable, but you need or will develop strong arm muscles if you're going to be carrying it around a lot.Read moreLess

Brilliant car seat seat, really comfortable for my baby. The midwives were really impressed with this when my husband came to collect us from hospital. It is quite heavy and I wouldn't want to walk far with it - but takes no effort at all to attach to the pushchair. Worth every penny.Read moreLess

We bought this after being disappointed by the BeSafe as it doesn't lie flat for newborns. It's very sturdy and comfortable and super-easy to install. And the roll bar/handle that adds protection is a great bonus - it is heavier than others but not too tricky to carry short distances.Read moreLess
