The seat of the royal se is a bassinet which is installed simply by aligning the anchors on the sides of the seat with the anchors on the sides of the stroller and pushing down until it clicks.
Before installing the seat, the removable bumper bar should be installed by aligning its anchors to the seat and pushing down. The bumper bar is not a carry handle and should not be used for carrying the seat especially when a child is in it.The removable bumper bar can receive a child tray with three clip on positions.
The stroller seat of baby trend royal se reclines to multiple positions. It can be adjusted to an upright, recline and carriage position. To adjust to the recline and upright positions, you need to buckle the footrest strap on the rear of the seat and adjust the straps around the headrest area till you are satisfied.
The upright position is recommended for children six months and older. This is to protect the head and neck of the child. Children who cannot hold their heads up by themselves are at a higher risk of injury in the upright position.The carriage position is best for babies and good for outdoor naps and diaper changes. To adjust to the carriage position, both footrest and headrest harnesses need to be loosen to allow for full extension of the seat surround.
The seat is properly padded and features a padded five point safety harness. The harness is easy to put on and take off. The straps of the five point harness has three height adjustable positions. The waist straps adjust easily with the help of a buckle. The harness is released by pushing on a button in the center of the claps (can be done with one hand).
The seat is a basinet and will probably work for children three years and below. This stroller can receive a car seat with snap technology to form a travel system. It doesn’t receive a regular stroller seat (maybe it will in the future). You can customize your stroller with a reversible stroller frame when in the car seat mode and get up to 6 riding options.
This stroller has a canopy that adjust to protect your child from the sun and wind. It has a viewing window for checking on your child.
The canopy is great when the stroller is reclined or in the upright position but no so great when it is in the carriage position.
