This seat comes in super handy for a second vehicle. Dad's/Grandparents etc. I know my husband hates having the bulky car seats in the back of his car for the occasional times he needs to pick up the kids. This can be folded up and put away when not in use. And it is easy to set up. I watched the video and then had Charlotte give it a shot. She is still a little young to do it herself, but was happy to sit on the seat. She said it made her feel like a big girl!
I was happy with the lap belt and where it sat on her. It was tight and felt secure. Watching the video is a must. As well as reading the instruction manual. You don't want to risk installing it wrong!
I love the idea and convenience of this seat. It still makes me nervous to put Charlotte in it on a regular basis. She is too wiggly and doesn't want to sit up straight the entire time. She is also still in a 5 point harness, so buckling the seat belt by herself would take some practice. And while it has passed all the safety standards, it doesn't feel safe for my 4 year old. Maybe when she gets a little older. I would definitely use this when traveling, especially for taxis. Now that Norah is almost big enough to face forward, the next time we go to California we can put her in the car seat my Mom has and Charlotte gets to use the mifold!
Installation and daily buckling takes some getting used to. More work than a regular booster
Might not be comfortable on long drives
Not ideal for younger kids
