What Some Parents Didn’t Like..
- Canopy can detach during adjustment
- Straps sometimes get twisted
The B-Safe was seen as a great seat by the majority of parents. It’s sturdy and well-built and is lighter than many other comparable models. It has also received excellent safety ratings while on test. The recline function offered was also praised highly for helping to get your infant settled during long journeys.
There were a couple of small things that bothered a minority of parents namely, the canopy can detach while being adjusted if you are not careful, and the straps are a little thinner than on some comparable models and this sometimes means that they get twisted.
In summary, this is one of the best infant car seats available and if you couple this with a stroller from the B-Series then you have a winning combination. The B-Safe is a Recommended Purchase.
