Perfectly Easy Convertible Car Seat
November 21, 2021
Ok, if this car seat existed when we needed an infant car seat for our 5.5 pound preemie, I would have 100% gone with this option. At the time, I didn't know convertible car seats of this caliber existed.
My absolute favorite feature is the SensorSafe chest buckle. Our previous infant car seat claimed to have breathable fabric, but every time I'd take baby out in the summer she'd be sweating despite my best efforts to keep the cabin temperature at a safe, comfortable range. I really appreciate the thought put into SensorSafe, telling me on my phone if baby is too hot or cold, has unbuckled themselves while we're moving, and I *love* that it monitors if the child has been left in the seat after the vehicle has been turned off! In my first months as a new mom, with fluctuating hormones and fears, I would have really appreciated a peace of mind feature such as this.
The design also offers ease of adjustment to recline or not, which just makes life easier. We all know how difficult some seats can be to adjust from position to position, and I am in awe and I love with the swivel feature of this seat!
We will have two children soon, and I've been really concerned with having to move the eldest to a rear side passenger position. The linear side impact protection devices give me a lot more peace of mind there. And we all know that the crotch buckles never stay in those pocket things so whoever designed a magnetic solution to keep these out of the way is a genius!
The seat is easy to clean; we had a wash need on day three of use so we had to learn how to take this apart quickly. Easy. They really thought of everything. Cup hold being independent of the seat was also a super smart design choice. Also makes it easy to clean than a stationary cup holder.
Cherry on top: our toddler is comfy and never overly hot when coming out. Falls asleep quickly and her neck is in a safe position at the recommended recline position for rear-facing.
These are pricey seats, yes. Worth it, yes! When you look at all the safety AND convenience features in one package, and add up the cost of comparable infant seats offering the same safety features plus a second seat for when they outgrow that, it's about the same as just having one really incredible car seat like this one. We are seriously impressed and buying another for our second vehicle.
Thank you so much to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for offering this seat to us to test out!
