Comments from Mumsnetters: Reviewers raved about the Autobaby system: "it can be fitted into a base (bought separately) which is already installed in the car, so removing and installing is quick and easy, great if you're in a hurry or it's pouring with rain". Plus "it ensures a secure fit, so it feels very safe". Everyone liked the rocking facility which is "soothing for a fretful baby" and found the handle "comfortable to hold" though like many seats "it's a bit heavy to carry round when the baby gets bigger". Overall: "a great buy", "I'm dreading my daughter growing out of it!"Read moreLess

Bought this simply because it came with the pushchair but love the fact it clicks into base, felt much more confident that I'd put it in right. Not as heavy as some, but still wouldn't want to carry it all day! Handy to have baby face you in pushchair when little, although he was normally asleep, needed extra head cushion when tinyRead moreLess

I read in advance that it was one of the safest car seats you could buy and having used it for my son (and after my sister using one for her son) I would only highly recommend it. It locks very securely into the car and makes getting baby in and out of the car so quick and easy and as long as you fit it right first time round theres no danger of getting it wrong at a later date. The only drawback is that it is heavy to carry around when the baby starts to get bigger but I would definitely buy this again.Read moreLess

This seat is very portable and when used with the auto base is very easily moved from car to home. When our daughter first arrived she was very small and did not find this seat comfortable at all. As she grew she fitted into the seat better and spent many journeys happily snoozing in it.Read moreLess

Very light to carry and very very easy to install and take in and out of the car. Which is prefect for a sleeping newborn. I would recommend this car seat and don't have any dislikes about it. Also one of the cheaper seats. Good luck with your new babies!Read moreLess

We'd be lost without these for our twins. We have an MPV so we can put the girls from their pushchair into the seats in the boot and then click them straight into the base in the car - so easy! Then when we get home it's just a quick un-click to take the seats out and carry them indoors, more often than not they are fast asleep and so stay in the chairs until they wake up.Read moreLess

Good to use with base which means not having to fasten seatbelt around chair every time. Base is bulky though.Read moreLess

It's very easy to fix in the car and we manage in ours without the autobase which is great.It looks comfy and Oscar likes being in his seat,although the downside is,it's very heavy-even when empty!Read moreLess
"This is the only seat that would fit my car…"
This is the only seat that would fit my car (sports car), but only with the base. We tried everywhere and in the end this came up.... well it was better than buying new seatbelts! - easy to use, esp with the base! good buy.Read moreLess
"With the autobase this car seat is fantastic for short…"
With the autobase this car seat is fantastic for short journeys and when you want to be taking the seat in and out of the car a lot. However, On long journeys the lack of padding means it's uncomfortable for the bay. Our son ended up with bad pressure marks on his back and bottom even though we had the recommended two-hourly breaks. He also screamed for the last four hours of a 7 hour journey - it was heartbreaking because you knew he was hurting but we had to keep going. The travel systems the seat fits on to are generally bulky and heavy to push with the seat attached so it's not as agreat a feature as it sounds. Our's lasted only 2 months before we traded it in for separate car seat and pram.Read moreLess

Its good value for money. Its quite big so it last along time. my baby lasted for 12 months in it. The only thing that lets it down is that its heavy.Read moreLess

It was the best system ever, no fiddling around with straps in the rain. Easy to move from one car to another. you can pick up a sleeping baby from the car and put it straight into the buggy without disturbing him/ her. I wish there was one designed for my 2 year old.Read moreLess

"An easy to install, comfy and nice looking car seat…"
An easy to install, comfy and nice looking car seat which clips in and out of your car with great ease. It also fits onto Graco Travel systems so that you do not have to disturb your baby while he is sleeping.
The only down side to the seat, I would say is that because it is part of a travel system, it is tempting to leave your baby in it for longer and use it a lot more in the pram. I hear that it is better for a baby's back not to do this.Read moreLess

This is a brillant system. It is so easy to get the baby in and out of the car absolutely no hassle and worth every penny.Read moreLess

its ok, and reasonable value for money as it comes with graco pushchairs as part of travel system. however, my son has nver really looked comfy in it and it only fits in the front seat of out car as its quite bulkey and the seat belt in the back is too short.all in all i dont think i'd choose this one again.Read moreLess
