Love the bed, but...
Mama Bear from Palmdale, CA – Verified Buyer
I love this car bed! We had our baby 12 weeks early, and he had some breathing and oxygen saturation issues, which were not entirely resolved at the time of his discharge. We had ordered this car bed, but he was discharged from the hospital before it arrived; so we purchased a carseat. The ride home was nerve wracking as he had difficulty maintaining good saturation levels, so he was various degrees of blueness the whole way home. Somehow he had done well sitting in the seat in the hospital, but I guess in the car was another situation. The car bed finally arrived, and we were able to use it for doctors' visits. Oh the joy, the peace of mind and heart to see him laying in peaceful and comfortable repose! He did not turn blue once! I wish I had known about this bed with my other children, especially my firstborn who was also a preemie, as it's so much more comfortable for the baby those first few weeks when their back muscles aren't strong enough yet and they look like a sack of potatoes all scrunched up sitting in the carseat. My only complaints are that the maximum weight is too low and there isn't enough harness strap to accommodate long babies. My baby, even though he's well under the weight limit, is almost too long for this bed. He'll most likely outgrow it before he outweighs it. Too bad!
For premature and low birthweight infants
Shums from baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer
This is a great product for low birthweight and premature infants who cannot physically tolerate being in a car seat. Though the upper weight limit is 9lb, I've found that most children outgrow the bed by length at around 6 or 7lbs. The cover/insert can be removed for washing. With doctor's orders, the infant can ride on their belly or right side-lying. Unless your child has a medical reason why they cannot ride in a conventional seat, you shouldn't purchase this just so your child can be "more comfortable." It's not intended for that.
Infant car bed
Cynthia from Wallingford, PA – Verified Buyer
This is for premature infants that are unable to use a regular car seat. It requires up two seats positions in the car.
