We use this every day, it's super easy to install and my son loves the cup holders.

My ONLY issue with this that I'm just now starting to see is that when he has to wear a light sweatshirt on chilly mornings, the buckles are REALLY hard to get him in there, that's with the belt pulled out all of the way, I'm not sure what I will do when winter comes, he doesn't even have one of those puffy coats either. He's currently 37 1/2 inches tall and 31.5 pounds.

We had high hopes for this seat because we used an older Cosco model 8 years ago for our first baby. Unfortunately, this model does not work rear-facing in all (perhaps most) vehicle because there is a huge gap at the base of the seat that made it impossible to install rear-facing in the vehicles we tried (Ford Focus, Ford Escape, Dodge Caravan). It fits perfectly in the forward-facing position, so maybe we'll be able to use it later on. However, if you want to buy this for a rear-facing seat, I would definitely check ahead of time to see if it's listed as being compatible with your vehicle and test it immediately upon purchase (the police station is definitely helpful for this) to see if can actually be installed properly or if the gap is too large. It's a very nice seat, so it's unfortunate and very disappointing that it has this huge design flaw that makes it only work rear-facing in certain vehicles.

    We bought this car seat when our son was outgrowing his infant one..We love it but the only con I would say is its a little wide with the built in cupholders..Other than that we love this car seat..We are planning on using this with the next one but using right from the hospital..Cause the starting weight starts at 5lbs..Which most all other convertible car seats do!

      Comments about Cosco 1001228 Cosco APT 40RF Convertible Car Seat - Calvin:

      We bought this around Jan 2015 when our baby was outgrowing her infant car seat and it was very affordable. Thankfully, it does its job, lightweight and we got it installed rear-facing in the middle, in our basic compact car by a tech. Six months later, we're still using it and doing well so far. Our hyperactive toddler of course sometimes doesn't want to get strapped down but give your baby a toy or something to calm them then secure them accordingly. Thankfully, this car seat was easy enough for me to switch to other cars as needed. Please do not install car seats yourself unless you have read your manual and researched thoroughly and go rear-facing as long as possible! Our toddler likes playing with the cup-holders with empty apple sauce cups and its bulkiness isn't a deal breaker. Honestly, I don't see a point paying over $100 as all car seats are supposed to pass the same regulations. I would definitely recommend this for those on a budget and looking for a simple car seats for their toddler!

        It was actually a bit confusing going from a travel system to convertible car seat. It was hard to tell in the directions how it should be latched into place. How much wiggle room should be allowed. I thought I pulled it as tight as I possibly could and it was tough to know how tight was tight enough

              We purchased this car seat online because of the price. When we received it the first thing I noticed was how hard it was - there was very little padding! Purchase this as a backup or second car seat. I definitely wouldn't want my daughter in it all the time - there's no way she would be comfy! Spend a little more and get a better padded seat!

                  My oldest son started using this as an infant & still uses it at almost 2. We are getting him a new one so his little brother can start using it.(Not because it's not safe for him anymore, we just think he's ready for a "big boy" one) Never had a problem with it in the last 2 years. & out of all the expensive one's we've never had a recall problem! We did have to buy an insert for the head/body until he was big enough to not need it but all in all it's a great car seat. Easy installation whether you use the safety hooks or just the seatbelt to secure it in place. It's super easy to move the harness to where you need it & the cup holders are perfect for little arms. For the price, you really can't beat it!
