This car seat is well made and ranked 1st by Consumer reports.
I wanted to buy it, but I had a hard time finding a stroller that I like, works with this, and the overall price fits my pocket. That is why I am giving 4 star.
It would have been great if they made a dedicated travel system with this.
I did a lot of research into car seats before our baby was born, and am so glad we settled on Clek. Avoiding flame retardants was just as important as crash impact safety, so wool was what I was after. Turns out there's not a lot out there! Love supporting this Canadian brand that puts so much thought behind what they do. The merino wool is so soft, and the cover goes down really low to block sun. The little window in the shade cover is a nice touch too.
I will say that the shoulder pads were a little wide in the early newborn days. Our daughter was right around 7lbs when she was born, and the pads were squishing her face no matter how we adjusted the seat. At least the material is very soft, and the fit is great now that she's almost 11 months!
About to order the Foonf now that our daughter is getting a little big for the Liing! She's 19.5lbs. While the Liing does say you can use it up to 35lbs, I honestly don't know how a 35lb child could fit into it! Our daughter's feet have been skimming the seat back for some time now, and her head is nearing the top of the seat.
This car seat was easier to install than I expected - and very easy to take in and out of the car. It includes all the safety features you expect plus additional features to make sure you have the car seat installed properly. It looks nice and isn’t too heavy which is a bonus. It works well with my Baby Zen YOYO stroller - but it needs the adapters for the stroller. Highly recommend for safety and ease of use!
