Most Helpful Reviews on the Evenflo Embrace 35 Infant Car Seat.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 6/6/2012 – … -Light-per product description this seat is only 4lbs (base excluded). It doesn’t even feel that heavy. It’s very easy to carry and transport…. -Padding-the entire car seat is fully padded approximately a third to a half an inch. The head rest probably has a full inch worth padding, so I can be assured he is resting comfortably…. -Surprises- This car seat is user friendly. It is super easy to get on and off the base. One button adjusting to change positions. And the handle bar is also easy to adjust from handle to impromptu base for use as a seat outside the car….  (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 1/7/2013 – Im loving this infant seat!… To adjust the straps you just push a button and pull the strap. Super easy! The green is a little darker than the picture. I would have gave it 5 stars but….the canopy is super short and the headrest seems a bit flimsy….  (read more and buy it at Walmart.com)

  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 3/21/2012 – … The car seat is TINY!!!!! My daughter is two months old and I am already having to buy a new carseat! She is 12 lbs and 22in long and will not fit in this seat much longer….  (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 2.0 out of 5 stars(2/5) – 5/22/2012 –  … the canopy on this car seat is absolutely ridiculous. It is too small to do any good for shading your baby, and the way it works makes it impossible to pull it forward over the seat very far to compensate. The back of the canopy has to be attached to the back of the seat by a strip of Velcro for it to stay in place – it does not have any other attachment, so if you detach the Velcro, the back of the canopy just springs forward with the rest of it…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 5/20/2011 – … This unit is very good. Its lightweight compared to some others we tried. It has easy adjusting straps and is the first one we bought that had decent head support for newborns. Baby seems very comfortable in it and it even looks great, what more can you ask for… (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 2/23/2012 – …  In looking at car seats there are not a lot of options in seats that accommodate 4lb babies. I was a little nervous ordering these sight unseen but I couldn’t be happier with them. The seats are very light weight, easy to install the base with the latch system, easy to buckle and adjust the straps over baby (well practiced with dolls for now). The carrier is easy to put in and out of the base too…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
