FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
Not only do we love the G5 infant car seat, but the merino wool is a huge bonus! Really happy it doesn't have any flame retardants, a big deal for my husband and I. Easy to clean and just all around cozy. Our little girl loves it!Lindsay K.
Our baby runs pretty warm, he's like a little heater box 24-7. My husband and I had heard about merino wool and its temp control properties but we had no idea it actually works! Best decision we made. Not to mention super sleek and stealthy looking.Julia M.
