From amazon buyer: "The baby is not born yet but here is what I see for now. Is a little heavy, no way you will be carrying the car seat without the stroller. I have a baby jogger city mini four wheels and it works perfectly with it, I did find the brown color cheaper in other store during cyber Monday and I got it. It is difficult to change to flat position, I gees I have to practice a little more. Before I discovered that car seat I was going to buy a regular one and the baby jogger deluxe bassinet. Now I don't really need it, expecting the baby for late spring. I do travel a lot to Europe and this one fits in small cars and you don't need to use the base. It looks pretty safe for the baby. Now waiting for the magic day"-Doly
