car seats

​I received this item as a baby shower gift after noticing it was on everybody's go-to guide for new moms. I did a lot of research before choosing this one, because a car seat is one of the biggest and most important purchases you will make. The brand itself brings safety and reliability to this car seat, as Graco has been a prominent name in the baby industry for a while. I love the fact that this car seat can grow with your child all the way up to ten years old. I have 2 children toddler and infant ages that both fit snug and securely. There are two cup holders on either side of the seat which is perfect for your child as he or she gets older for snacks and drinks. My toddler likes to use one as a place to hold her toys. The padding is removable and washable so spills and stains aren't an issue which is a huge plus. Here's the highs and lows for me:

 

​PROS: easy to use; grows with child; 2 cup holders; very safe; easy to convert; comfortable; wide weight range

 

CONS: gets hot and sweaty for baby due to material; harness gets tangled easily; pricey at around $300​.

 

All in all, I would highly recommend this car seat to other parents. Safety is a big issue and this is one of the best out there to keep your mind at ease. The price is definitely worth the hype because you won't need another car seat again and it provides functionality, comfort and ease of use.

 Graco Snug Ride Click Connect Car Seat

I received this product in exchange for reviews, but all opinions are of my own. When I first got the car seat out of the box I was taken away by how stylish and classy it looked. In my mind, this is like what a celebrity rides their kids around in! The material is so plush and luxurious and the car seat itself is very big. Here's what I thought about it:

PROS: material is soft; padding can be removed easily to be washed; the awesome click-magnet makes getting your child in much easier;it sits tall so my baby can see out of the back; the seat isn't as bulky in the back so the passenger has more room; I LOVE the harness holder that keeps the straps out of the way while your getting the child loaded up; more cushioning on top for baby's head; the color is so different and nice (nomad) and didn't seem to get as hot as other black seats which is super important if you live in the south like I do! The fact that it grows with your child up to 85 pounds is amazing! It has extra air cushions on the side of the seat as an added safety feature.

CONS: the car seat is somewhat heavy compared to its counterparts; the straps are difficult to loosen and tighten;cup holder can't hold sippy cup. This car seat met all of my expectations and then some! It's super comfortable and my baby falls asleep in it while we are driving all the time. My husband is very tall and the fact that he has more room driving or being a passenger makes his ride more comfortable too. It's easy to clean and you won't find a more posh looking car seat on the market. Even though the straps are a little difficult to work with, this is still an awesome car seat with cool features. I definitely recommend this car seat!!!

Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Max Car Seat

I received this product in exchange for reviews, but all opinions are my own. With so many convertible car seats out there now days, picking the right one for your baby can seem like a never-ending maze of options. I was familiar with the brand Britax before receiving this car seat but never actually owned any of their products. All I have to say is....what was I waiting for??!! This car seat is first class when it comes to comfort and safety. While there are a couple of tweaks that could be made, this car seat is impressive in its design and quality that will last and grow with your child. Here are my thoughts on the Britax Boulevard Clicktight Cool N Dry Convertible Car Seat:

 

PROS: super easy installation and probably the easiest of all convertible car seats I’ve tried; 14 position system that adjusts in multiple angles for your growing baby; 7 position seat recline with automatic level indicator adjusts for your child's comfort while ensuring the best installation angle for your vehicle; great for smaller cars with limited space since the many angle options allow for more room; grows with baby from 5 pounds all the way to 65 pounds; Patented SafeCell™ Side Impact Protection; the Click & Safe Snug Harness Indicator helps you adjust the harness to the proper tightness; uses bamboo charcoal to wick away moisture and keep baby cool and comfortable at all times; fabric is very breathable; easy to wipe away crumbs and water off fabric; I love that my baby’s head doesn’t slump over when she falls asleep due to the reclining angle

 

CONS: isn’t machine washable; takes a long time to air dry; somewhat difficult to reassemble after washing; car seat is heavy (but very sturdy); NO CUP HOLDER!; once installed, it won’t recline so make sure you’re aware of this

 

Overall, this car seat is a winner with its priorities focused on safety and comfort. If you’re looking for a premium car seat with a name brand to back it up, Britax has you covered on this one with cool features, a great design, and a price that’s very competitive to other name brands. No wonder Prince William and Princess Kate are fans of this brand...I’m on board now too! Add this one to your registry!

Britax Boulevard Clicktight Cool N Dry Convertible Car Seat

I received this product in exchange for reviews but all opinions are my own. As a mother of two babies that each weighed only six pounds leaving the hospital, I wanted to be sure that they were as comfortable and safe in their car seats as they felt in my arms. There is always a surplus of car seats ranging from basic to luxury to infant and convertible and everything in between. Fortunately, I have a lot of nursing friends from working at the hospital, and all of them recommended one car seat in particular: Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat. I was fortunate enough to be able to test this car seat with my baby girl and here are my opinions:

 

PROS: super easy installation; supports babies 4 pounds and up; no special insert needed for small babies as it comes with removable newborn head and body support; baby fits nicely without looking constricted or squished; harness can be tightened with one hand (yes, I tried!); quiet handlebar that goes up and down without waking the baby; easy to read level markers to know for sure your baby is at the safest position; latch tightener helps for a safe and secure fit; very durable and sturdy; fabric is easy to wash; clicks into base and other travel systems easily for quick transfer when baby is sleeping; chest plate is easy to fasten and get baby out; best infant support out there in my opinion; excellent safety ratings

 

CONS: sun canopy doesn’t cover much and the sun hits her face at odd angles; somewhat heavy and bulky (but they almost all are); somewhat pricey compared to other infant car seats

 

There is a reason the Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat is the number one rated infant car seat in America. With its incredible safety design and nicely padded support for even the tiniest of newborns, this car seat is a hit in our home and many more across the country. If you’re looking for a great infant car seat that delivers on quality, comfort, and reputation, then make sure to add this one to your baby registry!
