We have the Orbit Baby G2 travel system (the frame, the base, and the infant car seat) and felt somehow trapped as we thought since we already have the expensive base we should get the Orbit toddler car seat to put it to further use (our 12-month old baby is getting too big for the infant seat). Unfortunately, we were unable to see the toddler car seat in person because no retailer seems to have a floor model of this thing. I was hesitant to order it online so we went to a store hoping we would be able to take it out of the box to further examine its functions because I wasn't sure whether it has a recline function (Orbit website does not mention this function at all). So we went and were told by the shop that they do not have a floor model (surprise) and that the box cannot be opened. So I asked a few questions and was assured and reassured that it does, indeed, recline into a very comfortable position to accommodate babies and small toddlers. We paid almost $400 ($360 + NYC tax) and brought this thing home where we discovered that it DOES NOT RECLINE!!! I was furious because I asked 3 different sales persons and all of them assured me that it does recline. Every other convertible car seat on the market has a reclining function, especially at this price point. And frankly, for almost $600 ($360 seat + $220 base) it should recline automatically when I say "recline".Read more ›
This has been so convenient for me, especially when we travel. I bring my Toddler Car Seat and my Orbit base and voila! Car Seat and stroller in one! The fact that it can rotate on the stroller base and seemlessly go from the car to the stroller or even into the house when my little one has fallen asleep is perfect!
Please note that once you put the car seat in the front facing position, you will discontinue the use of the rotating base and will then use the brackets (which are nicely packaged and easy to use). Despite this set back, I still love it. Everything is cleverly designed, from the "paparazzi cover" and where it is stored, to the tiny velcro tabs that keep the straps for the seat open while your baby is not inside of it. This is a very well made car seat and I couldn't be happier.
I love all my Orbit Baby products!
If you're using the toddler car seat as a stroller seat whilst on vacation and you'd like some more shade/coverage (we did when we took our baby to Hawaii!), then simply purchase a $12 Ray Shade and you can attach the top straps to the strap in the back that holds the paparazzi cover and thread the side straps into the upper or lower holes along the tension line for the handles. You'll easily double or triple your shade this way.Read more ›
-in my 4-runner, i couldn't see anything out the rear view mirror with my rear-facing toddler car seat. NOTHING.
-the only way i could rotate it was to climb into the backseat, grip both sides and pull with all my strength. SO frustrating.
-there is no way i could lift my sleeping child, strapped into that thing, out of the car & onto the stroller. NO way.
-there is no recline option for your sleeping child. my son weighed 22 lbs at 6 months old & required a toddler car seat. after 2 trips and seeing his poor little head in his lap, i was done.
-and the obvious negative, once your child is forward facing, the infamous rotating base is obsolete.
i am thrilled with my britax boulevard click safe. for $320 it's a little cheaper, reclines, looks great and is top of the class safety.
orbit, i love your infant system. i was your #1 fan. but you've got a loooong way to go on the toddler system as far as i'm concerned.
UPDATE: I am now experiencing the problem with the twisting straps that other reviewers have complained about. Its amazing how they get twisted for no apparent reason. My daughter hates being put in her car seat and this makes it even more unbearable. I hate this seat!

The car seat is very uncomfortable for babies. Is very hard to get the baby out of the seat. If you want your baby to be comfortable DO NOT get this car seat. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Brandon Delgado

I love all of Orbit Baby's products, the G2 Toddler Seat is no different.
The only downsides I can think of is the toddler car seat is a lot heavier than the infant seat... Read more
