The stroller of the Chicco Viaro is a bit big and does not fully recline, so it is not recommended for newborns. Furthermore, its backrest does not offer full support for smaller babies. If you plan on using this travel system from day one, you need to get the infant safety seat.
The stroller comes with multiple recline. The backrest can recline at any angle with a simple squeeze of its buckle. Keep in mind that the lowest position of the seat is not entirely flat, but it will provide your toddler a comfortable position when he’s napping while you’re strolling around.
The seat also comes with a comfortable and soft padding and a padded 5-point harness as well. It is not removable, but its seat padding can be removed if you want to hand wash it.
