Most Helpful Reviews on the Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Plus Infant Car Seat.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – 9/9/2011 – I work at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, NE. When necessary, we use the Cosco Comfy Carry Elite to discharge infants weighing 4 pounds or more from our Newborn Intensive Care Unit. This is a great seat, with easy to use features such as the front harness adjuster, a small harness dimension for smaller infants, it is light weight and economically priced. I find installation in the vehicle to be very easy using either the vehicle seat belt or the LATCH attachements. (read more and buy it at
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 3/20/2012 – I like this infant seat better than my Designer 22 model purchased 3 years ago…. One thing I noticed that seemed cheaper is that the base only has one height adjustment which consists of a red block under the base fliping out and locking into place adding 2 1/2 inchs of height at the foot area. Safety 1st calls the block a recline foot. My previous Designer 22 adjustable base had 3 different heights to choose from. I didn’t need the recline foot in order for my car seat to be level to the ground so this wasn’t an issue for me…. Overall, I would recommend this car seat as it is light and easy to adjust. I gave it 4 stars for the seemingly cheaper recline foot… (read more and buy it at
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – 1/26/2012 – … What we found was that the head part of the seat lifts off of the base while the foot part stays securely attached. Both car seats have rear BASE attachment buttons (as they are called in the manual). Finding this odd, I read the manual again. In the manual it claims to have rear BASE attachment HOLES. On both of our bases these HOLES do not exsist. I called the Dorel company and they said that yes that is how they made these car seats and bases and that it is safe…. I informed them that their manual is very misleading and was told they’d make a note of it…. (read more and buy it at
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – 7/25/2012 – My husband and I purchased this carseat to have as a spare for his truck or anyone else my daughter may need to ride with. It is very light (especially compared to the Britax I keep in my car) and easy to move from one vehicle to the next. It is pretty easy to install & adjust. The multiple slots for adjusting are a plus. My daughter rides in it with no problem & seems comfy.  (read more and buy it at
