Looking for a narrow, tall, high back booster? The Safety 1st Boost Air Protect may be for you! The Boost Air Protect functions as a high back and backless booster. This seat was given a Best Bet rating from the IIHS for 2013 when used in high back mode.
Looking for a good booster seat that doesn’t take up much room and comes in a bag? Yup – a bag! The BubbleBum is a FMVSS 213 (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard) approved booster seat that is inflatable, and small enough to fit in a bag. It is made from durable materials; similar to that used to make life vests and other life saving products. It has even passed standards in its deflated state in case it were to be punctured in a crash. It’s easy to inflate and even self inflates to a certain extent when taken out of the bag.
*This seat has been discontinued* Recently I had the opportunity to check out the latest offering to the rear facing only seat market by Baby Trend: the Inertia infant car seat in the Horizon fashion. The seat itself has many similarities to Baby Trend’s popular Flex-Loc infant seat, but the base is full of new technology for Baby Trend, featuring an anti rebound bar and rigid lower anchor connectors. This seat has been discontinued.
Looking for a convertible seat packed with easy to use features for your tall, skinny child? The First Years True Fit is made for you! This seat has been discontinued.
When the Britax Frontier 90 was released, we did a quickie review of the new Harness-2-Booster Britax Frontier 90 with the ClickTight installation system. We have been given the opportunity to look more in-depth at the seat, and are excited to share it with you!
When Britax announced the release of the new Frontier 90 and the Pinnacle 90, I will admit that I was pretty skeptical. As a CPST I’m used to sweating, struggling, and wrangling seats to get them installed properly. And that can only happen after figuring out whether to use lower anchors, or seat belt and determining how the seat belt locks, if I need a locking clip, or if there is a lower anchors weight limit I need to account for.
The Harmony Defender 360 is a fairly new addition to the world of combination seats (aka car seats that convert from a forward facing five point harness into a belt positioning booster), and I had the opportunity to take one for a spin this week.
I run a busy car seat inspection station and expectant parents are some of my most frequent clients. That means I see a whole lot of infant seats. I always breathe a sigh of relief when I’m scheduling an appointment and a parent tells me their seat is a Chicco KeyFit; because it’s just so easy.
The Chicco NextFit is the long anticipated convertible car seat offering from Chicco, who brought us the much-loved Chicco KeyFit rear facing only seat. The NextFit delivers in all the same ease of use features we love about the KeyFit, and offers a great option for extended rear facing.
In the world of combination (forward facing harness to booster) car seats, we have a lot of excellent choices these days. Things have come a long way since just a few years ago when five point harnesses with weight limits above forty pounds simply did not exist. Today I took a look at a great option from RECARO: the ProSPORT. This seat has been replaced with the RECARO PerformanceSPORT.
Today, I had a chance to check out the Britax Frontier 90. This is not going to be the most in-depth review on the web, because my opportunity to check out this seat involved both of my kids (4 years and 2 months) present in the parking lot of a kid’s consignment store, with a CPST friend who graciously agreed to spend her work break letting me take apart her personal seat and install it and bribe said four-year old into allowing me to take pictures with him in it.
