This summer, we’re making vehicle heat stroke awareness our top priority. We’ve shared some of the specifics around hyperthermia in our longer article. We’ve put together this handy, shareable guide to help get the word out!
There has been much buzz about the new Cybex Cloud Q, a rear-facing-only seat that offers a recline option when not in the vehicle! How does it measure up?
Combi has issued a recall for Coccoro convertible car seats manufactured between January 2009 and June 2016. When used forward facing and installed with a lap belt, the affected seats may not adequately protect the child from crash forces. Caregivers with affected seats should contact Combi for a fix for their seats.
We’ve been big fans of the well-featured Nuna Pipa rear facing only car seat for quite some time. When Nuna announced the new AACE booster seat and the upcoming RAVA convertible car seat, we Could Not Wait to take a look! The AACE arrived in a very large box and I forced myself to finish another article before I could open it.
Caregivers often ask if it’s safe to use a seat protector between the vehicle seat and the car seat.
Our stance on this issue? Avoid using a seat protector if at all possible. Why?
Our article on Seat Protectors takes an in-depth look at the issues and offers some information on keeping your vehicle seats neat and tidy.
This portable harnessed car seat used to be known as the SafeGuard Go but now goes by the name IMMI Go. This lightweight, combination car seat stores in a handy bag and converts to a backless booster seat.

Perhaps you’ve seen members in our facebook group asking about a rear facing only (“infant”) seat be warned to “make sure it’s not rear adjust!” Or perhaps you yourself purchased a rear facing only seat, and you can’t find the adjuster strap to tighten the harness. What’s going on?
We’ve all been there. Parents post a cute picture of their cute baby on Instagram in her car seat and the Chest Clip Brigade starts in with murmurs of, “Gently, mama, her chest clip needs to be 3mm higher on her chest or your baby will die in an accident. Don’t you love your baby?”
Our Facebook page and our Facebook group are home to many, many questions from caregivers. One of the most common questions is how to choose the right car seat. In many cases, the child in question is well over 2 years old and rides forward facing but is not yet ready for a booster. Sometimes a great deal on a convertible car seat seems too good to be true and our users don’t want to pass up what seems like a great deal. The catch is that the convertible or multimode car seat on sale might not be the best value for a child who is already forward facing. That very common scenario begs the question: what type of car seat — convertible, multimode, or combination is best for this kiddo?
