The Baby Trend EZ Flex Loc 30 Infant Car Seat is yet another great product from this increasingly popular brand. Just like it’s sister product the Flex Loc, the EZ Flex Loc is absolutely fantastic value, coming in well under the $150 mark and best of all not forgoing anything on safety or comfort. You really do get fantastic value with these baby car seats. Not only are the Baby Trend rear-facing car seats great value but they are also great looking too, you can be sure to be the envy of the town if you have one of these in the back of your car. Most important of all though, you will know your baby is safe and secure because the Baby Trend EZ Flex Loc 30 Infant Car Seat has passed all the necessary safety tests required to sell an infant car seat/baby car seat in the United States.
Who should buy this?
As the EZ Flex Loc 30 Infant Car Seat is a rear-facing car seat you can only use this while your child is relatively young. To be more specific you can only place your baby safely in this product while they weigh between 5 and 30 pounds or up to 28.5 inches in height. This is notably lower/smaller than some other brands, but this should not put you off buying as most children will be ready for a new car seat anyway once they reach these maximum heights/weights. The only slight downside of this model is the entry weight of 5 pounds, this means it will exclude most prematurely born babies, which is a shame. The only way around this is to wait until your newborn baby reaches the 5 pound minimum weight before driving. You should never travel with a baby in the car seat that does not meet the minimum or maximum requirements.

What’s not so great?
- The height and weight limits are a little lower than some other rear-facing infant car seats available to buy today. We don’t feel this is a deal breaker though, the positives far outweigh the negatives here, for us anyway.
- We give this seat 4 stars as while it serves well in the price bracket, some user have reported it to be a little too on the cheap side in terms of materials and durability.
