User Ratings and Reviews

3 Stars packaging could have been better
The packaging was done in a way that makes it easy to get the product damaged, it came with some scratches here and there becuase of the packaging. otherwise, the product is good

4 Stars Could improve, but this product is Good
Could this monitor improve… well sure, but overall this is a good monitor and gets the job done. Some have said that the video quality is poor and the night vision is horrible. They must be comparing it to other video monitors that they have seen/used because I think the quality is just fine (as a first time mom). I mean we aren’t looking to capture memories with this monitor, just see the kid – right? The only thing that we think NEEDs improved is the volume control. The microphone is pretty sensitive and there needs to be another notch down on the volume control. This issue is small, though, in our opinions.

We believe that the secure feature of this monitor makes it well worth the money.

2 Stars Works but not the best video quality
I ended up returning this product because after setting it up and using it the video quality was very poor–not something I would expect with the price. The only thing I did like about this monitor was the size because the hand held portion was very slim. I also didn’t realize that once you set up the video portion you cannot change the position of it from the hand held so if your baby moves you must come in to adjust it. I ended up spending a few more dollars and getting the “best view” by Summer from Amazon which confirmed how horrible the video quality was on this one because the quality on the other model was 100% better. I would recommend trying a different model if video quality is what you are looking for (and if you are buying a video monitor I’m sure that’s important!!!).

4 Stars Works great
Works great. I upgraded to this digital monitor from our other summer model that was not digital. The non-digital had a lot of interference but this one is great. Only giving 4 stars because the picture isn’t very good when it gets dark, which I was not expecting.

4 Stars Overall: Happy with this purchase!
Overall, we are really pleased with this monitor. The reception is great. Absolutely no static. Battery life (so far) is good.

I really do not use the monitor with much light, so we primarily are using the video feature with the night vision on. The picture with the night vision is a little grainy; however, I would not expect a crystal clear picture in the dark with any baby monitor. So I was not disappointed. In the light, the picture is extremely clear and in color. Anyone that has come over and looked at the monitor has commented on how great the picture looks.

The volume is easy to access. You can use up to four cameras with this unit. And there is a split screen feature so you can watch all active cameras at once. That was one of the other big selling points for me. Not to mention, I suspect the talk back feature will definitely come in handy when it is time to move our child to a big kid bed (“get back in bed”)!

The only issue I have noted with the monitor is that is does interfere with my wireless internet. It just seems to slow it down a bit if I have the monitor right next to me when using my computer. I did notice less interference when I was not using the video feature and just had the audio on. The interference is not horrible and based on all the reviews I have read with other brands of video monitors, it seems to be an issue across the board.

I would definitely recommend this monitor to my friends and family. I did extensive research before purchasing this item. And again, I am happy with the purchase.

5 Stars Authentic Replacement Cover
The cover that I’ve got is made of high quality materials and looks to be authentic by Britax. I’m totally satisfied with the purchase.

5 Stars Worth the money
After doing a lot of research for an “upgrade” from my son’s infant seat, we settled on the Britax Marathon and couldn’t be happier. It is sturdy and comfortable. I started using it when he had outgrown his infant seat at about 13 months. The first time I put him in it, he actually slept for the first time in a long time while in the car. I think ths seat is very comfortable for him. It’s also not bulky, as I have a compact car. This is THE BEST car seat, I can’t say enough about it. Believe the hype about Britax, they are great products!!

4 Stars Britax Car Seat Cover
Product was of the same high quality as all the other Britax Seat Covers. Fits perfectly onto the car seat “just like new”.

1 Star poor quality control and funky factory smell.
To get the funky smell (and strange taste) off of the new seat cover we washed it on the gentile cycle with regular detergent. The grey cloth center section of the seat cover split at all of the seams around the belt holes. This was not a problem with the original cover that was all the plush material. I suspect the problem has only to do with the covers with the cloth inserts. I was able to return the item for a full refund with no hassle.

5 Stars great love it
This is not exactly like the picture but I like it better, it has a little bit of tan through out the pattern which keeps it from showing every little piece of dirt. Fits the seat great…if I could change anything it would be to make the openings for the strap a little bigger..really have to struggle to fit them through the openings.

5 Stars Swaddling Wraps
Excellent and inexpensive swaddling blankets! However, my baby soon grew out of the small size wraps, and she is just turing 7 weeks old! Would recommend buying only a couple of the small sized ones ( I bought 6 and didn’t end up using them as long as I would have liked to). Not sure if the large sized ones would fit newborns, but I think they might and they’d last longer.

5 Stars Kiddopotamus – Best invention ever!
Every parent needs this product. The ease of use is great and the safety features are excellent. Keeps baby warm, secure, and safe.

5 Stars Must-Have for Newborn
I can’t recommend this product highly enough. Swaddling helps our baby to calm easier (ala “Happiest Baby on The Block” — if you don’t know that book, look it up, it’s a perfect companion gift with this wrap). The swaddle also helps her to sleep longer, and it keeps her little hands warm at night so that they’re not ice blocks in the morning. I wish that we had bought two for those early days when she was spitting up so much so that I could always have one on her when I needed it, even if the other was in the laundry.

You might watch the nurse swaddle your baby with a receiving blanket and say, “why do I need something more expensive?” but you will be very, very happy to have the velcro on this. It’s easy to bind up your squirming baby with the swaddle-me, and it stays put so that she won’t wriggle out too soon. I love that it’s easy. I love that it’s effective. I love that it has landing-strips for the velcro so that it doesn’t ruin all the other items in your laundry.

My only complaint is that it does not last very long. Don’t count on using it for your next baby, and realize that a hand-me-down might not hold as well as a new one. My daughter used hers so much that we had to get a new one when she was only 2 months old. Totally worth it, though. I’d buy them again in a heart-beat.

Please note that this product is the microfleece, and therefore not good for summer or tropical babies. Go for a lighter material in warm climbs.

5 Stars We use them every night
I can’t say enough good things about these swaddle blankets. I just love them. We have six of them and use them every night.

The regular blankets never stayed swaddled and we worried about constricting baby’s legs too much. But these little blankets make swaddling so easy that anyone can do it. And they stay swaddled.

5 Stars couldn’t wash it fast enough
My husband and I agree that this is what saved us. Swaddling our daughter with just a blanket never stayed long enough or tight enough for her taste. Whenever she was crying we put her in this and it ALWAYS helped. We found our 8 lb daughter fit in this with room to spare. She did grow out of it, but at that point she was too old for swaddling anyway. It is what I buy for baby showers, and I always rave about this to friends and neighbors. The only problem for us was that we only had one, and when she spit up we had to wait for it to come out of the wash.

5 Stars Exactly What I Needed
This product is wonderful. It kept my little one very warm in the winter. There is enough room for him to move his legs around in it, which ultimately gives him the freedom that he wants. It can be pulled to just under their neck, leaving his head free to look around and see what is going on around him. I highly recommend this to those parents who are looking for something to keep their child warm.

5 Stars Fantasitc
I live in Michigan where the weather can vary wildly from day to day. I am sooo glad I got this Bundle me lite! It is not at all heavy like the original bundle me but is extremely soft on the inside and a windbreaker type material on the outside. I ordered the Stone and was a bit worried that it looked like it had a bluish tint on my screen but it is definitely a grey with no hint of blue whatsoever. It fits my Graco Snugride carseat perfectly. Very Pleased!

3 Stars Its OK
It is not heavy as the regular version and can not be used in winters. I’d rather buy the regular version which protects my kid in winter as well.

4 Stars convenient and cozy
love the soft fleece lining the inside of the car seat, even when not using the top part (which easily unzips off). nice for fall/spring, can add a blanket inside for colder months. convenience of not having blankets falling off. product does not fit quite as snug onto the seat as pictured, but still ok to me. color is nice.

5 Stars Lightweight alternative to a blanket
This product is a must for anyone with a baby! I love that I don’t have to worry about my baby’s blanket dragging or falling on the ground with this product! It’s perfect for cooler (not cold) weather that we experience here in PA during the beginning of spring, summer nights and fall. I would recommend this product highly to anyone I know that’s expecting or who already has a baby!

3 Stars I loved the stroller, but the seat is short
This is a great stroller. It folds easily. Isn’t too bulky. When folded with the seat facing away from the parent, it was about the size of our travel system folded. Very easy to push. My husband is 6’2″ and the handle bar was perfect for him. My son hates strollers but when we put him in this one he was happy facing us. He is 9 1/2 months old and his head was at the top edge of the seat! He is in the 75 % for height. We are very sad to return this stroller because for the price it is great, but I just can’t see spending this kind of money to have it only last a couple more months. I wish I would have bought this stroller when he was a newborn as I know we would have got a lot of use out of it.

4 Stars So far it’s a great buy for it’s price
I’ve had the stroller for 3 days now and the only complaint I have is that while closed it is bulky. It occupies a lot of space in my car trunk. But the baby loves it, she looks comfortable, it rolls really well. It doesn’t feel heavy and I don’t regret my choice as of yet. I consider it a great price for the type of stroller that it is.

5 Stars Great stroller for a great price
I have been using the stroller every day for a month and I love it. It has its pros and cons of course but pros are overwhelming the cons.

Pros: Very easy to manouver, rides on grass, unpaved roads, easy to lifts on curbs. The handle is very comfortable, I am 5’10” and had a hard time with my previous travel system. I was bending as I was walking because the handle was too low and too close and I couldn’t make a step without stepping on a break…so annoying. Well, here it’s perfect! I can walk fast, probably you could jog as well. The stroller is very easy to fold, the seat detouches very easily for reversing on changing for car seat. It’s very sturdy and well balanced. Pleasure to ride!

Cons: First of all, the reclining seat DOES NOT change the angle of a seat, it just tilts back, but at the same time legs go up. So the baby always seats at 90 degrees angle. As I was reading the reviews before purchasing I saw it in only 1 review and since nobody else mentioned it, I figured it must have been a defected unit. Well, that one reviewer was right. For a baby who doesn’t hold his head properly it is not best solution. My 2 months old baby’s position is not the best and I need to support him with extra cloths. After 3 months I guess it will not matter that much anymore.

Another thing mentioned multiple times before is the weight – it is on a heavy side – 35 lb without a baby inside. Too heavy for me to carry 7 steps up with the sleeping baby inside. But the seat detouches easily, so I just take the seat and leave the rest on a driveway.

The last thing is the size of the seat. My baby is 2 months old and the back support looks like is going to be too short in few months. I don’t know, maybe babies sit differently later and it will be enough. Leg room is suffivient.

In general, we are very happy with the purchase and would recommend it for 3months and older babies.

4 Stars Stroller
I researched a lot of jogging strollers and felt that this one for it’s price was a winner. So far my only complain is the size and heavyness of it. I drive a honda accord and the stroller takes up all of my trunk space. It’s pretty heavy to lift in and out of the car. Other than that, I like that it’s a smooth ride (I’ve taken it over sidewalks, grass, and sand) and the fact that you can make the seat view backwards and forward. I wish the canopy were a bit bigger but I use a sunshade cover so that solves that issue. It’s easy to collapse and to remove the seat. I also like the added safety bar and that it can recline. The materials are durable. The only other negative i can think of is the plastic wheels make it look cheap, but with a affordable price tag I can live with them, over paying $500+ for a visually appealing stroller that does the same job.

4 Stars Very nice stroller
We just put the stroller together but will not have a baby to use it until September. It has functioning brakes on the rear wheels that are easy to use. The descriptions of the product functions seem to be accurate. I would not recommend this as a “one person” assembly unless that person has some experience reading and following directions or is mechanically minded. We put the braking mechanism on backwards and had to do it over again. The picture of the braking mechanism did not help the installation. Make sure the brake bar can be pushed down instead of up after you install it. Looks like it will be a good stroller!
