Guide Review - Sit-N-Stroll Car Seat and Stroller
As a car seat, the Sit-N-Stroll is great for travel, but challenging for everyday use. The harness is simple to tighten and the harness height is easy to change. The belt path passes in front of the child both rear- and forward-facing, so the child must be in the seat as it is installed in a vehicle. When the child is already in the seat, it's harder to install the seat tight enough to be safe, so practice installation with the child in the seat before traveling.
The seat is designed to be removed from the car every time, and must be unbuckled from the vehicle to get the child out of the seat. The manufacturer suggests using the vehicle belt rather than the LATCH belt to get the best rear-facing fit. A pool noodle placed in the seat crack may help maintain the correct rear-facing angle. But, if you're using this seat for travel, you may not have that piece of pool noodle handy in order to get a correct installation rear-facing.
Sit-N-Stroll is a great choice for those who travel with baby a lot or use public transportation and don't leave a car seat in their own vehicle regularly. The installation difficulty could likely be overcome by careful reading of the manual and lots of practice. As with any car seat, the safety of the seat depends on a parent's willingness to install it correctly each time.
