Description: The Baby Trend Latch LOC Car Seat is a latch compatible, 5 point harness infant safety seat. It features a base that stays in the car and attaches either with the LATCH (latches and tethers for children) system or with a seat belt, and a separate infant seat that can be used as a carrier. Also comes with a sun shade.
Review: I put a lot of emphasis on safety when it comes to my kids and their car seats. Before I purchase a safety seat I do research in Consumer Reports magazine.
The Baby Trend Latch-LOC was found to be one of the safest choices when run through their crash tests. The 5 point harness is also a great selling point, as these have been proven to be superior to the 3 point harness systems.
Also, I have found this car seat to be easy to use. It’s very simple to get a good, tight installation which is so important for baby’s safety.
For convenience the base can be attached to the car semi permanently and you can remove the infant seat to use on your shopping cart or if baby falls asleep in the seat and you don’t want to disturb him. You can purchase additional bases and install them in your other vehicle, so that you can easily move the seat from one car to another.
The sunshade is nice for preventing sunlight from getting hurting baby’s eyes.
Another thing I like about this seat is the easy to adjust headrest. It makes for a snug fit even for a newborn. And to raise or lower it, all you have to do is twist a knob in the back. It’s not necessary to rethread the straps through the back of the seat, which can be a real inconvenience.
Con: The only drawback is that this seat is no longer being manufactured so it’s sometimes hard to find one.
