  • Yes you can but make sure it is tight and secure it is harder to get it tight enough without the base in too. You shouldnt be able to shove the seat more than an inch either direction whn buckled in. GL

  • Yes you can. Check the manual for the proper way to strap in YOUR particular carrier, though.
